It's easy to confuse all these wannabe nuclear powers, from North Korea, India, Iran and even China. That's a lot of firepower in areas of the world whose governments probably wouldn't flinch if half their citizens got nuked - as long as the heads of state got to their bunkers.
Having said that...if conditions were still the same in Afghanistan as they were in the 80's, it's likely Russia (AKA: the USSR) would have attempted to put some warheads there. We almost had WWIII over them attempting to do it in Cuba. Our whole trouble started over there when we were competing with the Russians as to who could arm their puppet armies the most (then leave them all to fight it out).
