December 2nd, 2001: Mullah Saifur Rehman begins collecting forces in Pakistan right on the border and begins moves to insert Taliban and guerrilla fighters back into the Tora Bora area.
March 2002, over 1,000 fighters are in the region. Throughout Afghanistan, insurgency would begin. At this point, US forces in country Are at 10k
March 2002: US Forces climb to 12k. A national insurgency continues but is not as dedicated or well organized. The USSR becomes conce:ned of the U.S. presence, with military bases looking they may be permanent and that a prolonged conflict could occur. the USSR (CCCP-) reaches out to the Watan Party of Afghanistan to help them form a cohesive movement aligned with the Afghan Social Democratic Party and the Communist Party of Afghanistan.
May 2002: The Afghan Socialist Front is established by the Soviet Union
May 2002: The United States begin working with Independent politicians and other parties that are specifically against Socialist and communist Movements. They begin to work with the Islamic Dawah organization and the National Congress Party, forming a network known as the Democratic Afghan Coalition
October 2002: militia members of the Afghan Socialist Front (ASF) launch attacks in the areas around Kandahar, Panjab, Mazari Sharif, and Herat, occurring October 5th to the 12th, known as the "Long Week". ASF manages to secure a large amount of territory, taking advantage that US forces were more focused on in the area around Kabul. American units that had been in the area of Kandahar are killed. In total, 42 Americans are killed, along with over 100 Democratic Afghan Coalition (DAC) militia members and supporters. DAC and Americans focus on the eastern portion of the country around Kabul, and the other eastern regions. on October 14th, USSR forces begin to send sorties to drop supplies in Kandahar to support the ASF. The same week sees members of the insurgency join the ASF. Members of the Taliban disband, and arrangements are made that if the ASF is successful, an Islamic Nation would be set up in Afghanistan, with the nation being split between the ASF and Islamic Hardliners. In the middle of October, DAC forces, supported by American Special Forces, launch strikes on ASF forward operating bases. The United States refuses to commit more American Forces in the war, and instead relies on air power and on DAC forces. They keep 14k units in country to support on the ground operations. They also supply DAC forces.
December 2002: ASF launches an attack on Kabul itself, with a series of truck bombs and ordinances. 20 Unmarked SU-27's and 4 Tu-95s strike Kabul from above. On the ground, DAC and American forces are in disarray. This attack leaves 87 Americans dead, and over 600 DAC forces killed. No Tu-95s are shot down, but 2 SU-27's are shot down. In the battle, 22 USSR Spetsnaz agents take part helping to coordinate and guide air attacks on the ground.
February 2003 to July 2003 sees a series of attacks occurring on DAC and ASF territories. USSR and American relations sour to a point of cold relations due to American's learning of USSR involvement in the battle of Kabul in December 2002. The two nations understand they are at a close point of engaging in warfare directly.
Feb. 2003 to July 2003, despite the attacks, neither side sees any advantage take shape. The country at this point is essentially in a state of civil war. The United States dedicates another 10k soldiers to bolster the 14k in country to try to push on ASF territory, a change in policy from the previous year. these forces arrive in Late June. In response, the USSR deploys more weapons to the ASF, along with a force of 10k which arrives in Mid-August. USSR and American Forces largely stay away from each other, only directing attacks on ASF and DAC positions.
September 2003 to January 2004 stays the same. DAC and ASF make no inroads despite American and Soviet Support systems. In November 2003, Islamic Hardliners become frustrated, and re-organize and Islamic insurgency despite USSR opposition. The Insurgency focuses attacks on the American positions.

December 2003 sees an unfortunate event. Soviet General Forces and American Forces move into position around Kunduz. Soviet artillery strikes American positions, with the Soviets believing the Americans were trying to flank.

ASF & DAC leaders refuse to sign the treaty on the grounds of self-determination.
March 2004: 3 members of DAC leadership are killed in an IED attack. Insurgents take credit. Insurgents demand an end to hostilities between DAC & ASF, and a treaty to be signed granting autonomous zone to Islamic rule. Al-Qaeda insurgents absorb Taliban elements, leadership placed on a man Sabaah al-Parsa. Soviet & American leadership meet to discuss the insurgency. intel sharing begins between Soviet & Americans to help find and kill Sabaah al-Parsa.
April 2004: Intel gathered by Soviets determine that if Sabaah al-Parsa is removed from power, severe disorganization would occur among the Afghan Insurgency, and could bring the insurgency to the table for a peace deal. ASF militia launch attack on insurgent camps in the west, and DAC focuses efforts on the east as Soviet & Americans push the militias to conduct independent operations as both sides begin the withdrawal process.
May 2004: American Navy Seal team 4 conduct an operation in Arward, performing a snatch & grab on two Insurgency leaders. Spetsnaz units conduct a similar operation in Mirabad. Information gathered suggests Sabaah al-Parsa is operating out of a town in Uzbekistan called Navoi.
June 2004: KGB intelligence and CIA confirms that Sabaah al-Parsa is in Navoi. KGB and Spetsnaz monitor his movements and draws up plans to conduct in operation. In Afghanistan, the insurgency reaches a stalemate. DAC and ASF forces manage to gain back territory taken by the insurgency. ASF and DAC leadership also begin talks, meeting in Byzantium for peace talks hosted by Basileaus Nikolaus Atredai. The same offer is brought to the Insurgency but al-Parsa refuses. Intelligence later reveals his advisors disagreed, seeing the cause of the Insurgency as lost.
July 2004: Operation Iskra II is conducted in Navoi. Sabaah al-Parsa is captured by KGB and Spetsnaz forces instead of killed and is sent back to the heart of the USSR. The rest of Insurgency leadership at the compound is killed. a double of al-Parsa is placed, photos taken of the body. American intelligence is informed by Soviet Leadership that Sabaah al-Parsa is dead. The Insurgency makes a final desperation move on Kandahar but is beaten back swiftly.
August 2004: ASF, DAC, Soviet, American, and the Insurgency (now known as the Islamic Coalition) meet in Byzantium in the Hellenic League for peace talks. Agreements are made for the Islamic Coalition to lay down its arms. ASF and DAC forces begin to work together in Afghanistan to maintain security.

September 2004: Soviets achieve a full withdrawal from Afghanistan. Sabaah al-Parsa is locked away at an unknown KGB location. In Afghanistan, the Treaty signed in Byzantium takes hold, and Afghanistan sees an end to hostilities. Plans are made to form a coalition government. The Islamic Coalition takes part in rebuilding, focusing on Islamic institutions.
October 2004: American intelligence community determines Sabaah al-Parsa is not dead, and somewhere in the USSR. The President of the United States determines to leave it be due to it being an election year and the deadly result that could happen in Afghanistan.
November 2004: American withdrawal of troops is completed, just in time for the U.S. Presidential election. ASF and DAC form a new organization called United Afghanistan. The Islamic Coalition declines an offer to join but works with them for the rebuilding efforts. No attacks have occurred since August 8th, 2004.
January 2005: The war in Afghanistan is declared officially over as Soviet and American forces sign an agreement in Athens with United Afghanistan and the Islamic Coalition.
