Anyone who has seen this film particularly within the last decade will have probably noticed what seemingly must be a 'strange' attitude towards the Afghan fighters, or specifically the Mujahideen fighting "the foreign invasion". This scene encapsulates this point:

Watch

The irony was not lost on the studio/distributor. Here's a quick movia trivia:

The movie ends with two quotes: "This film is dedicated to the gallant people of Afghanistan." and "I am like a bullet, filled with lead and made to kill" However, this was a not the original quote in the movie. Prior to the American war in Afghanistan, the ending quote of the movie read "This film is dedicated to the brave Mujahideen fighters of Afghanistan". This was then edited to read "people of Afghanistan" during the post 9/11 era.​

Watch "The Living Daylights" Bond movie of that era, you'll get a romanticized picture the of Mujahideen there as well.

Should have just edited the entire movie to be one long black screen. Such a horrid movie.

Afghani people are the hardest skinned people along with the Nepalese Ghurka's. They are probably the toughest forces if given the weapons as was proved by Americans against the Russians. The good thing is Afghani people don't hold grudges against foreign forces if you pay them. When and If US gets out of Afghanistan and starts paying the afghani people, they will even invade Iran for you
