Former Russian president Vladimir Putin says that the experience of the Soviet Union, which was an early adopter of Afghanistan beta version, should've helped the U.S. steer clear.
"Been there, done that. Afghanistan is full of bugs and crude work-arounds. The only thing stupider than our buying it was for America to go for the 'alpha' version, which has even more bugs than the beta."
Diplomats and policy analysts have noted that Afghanistan doesn't load properly, takes up too much RAM, is prone to failure and self-corrupts, among other deficiencies.
