it received as much $600 million in U.S. aid money to fight the war with the Soviets. Despite its ample funding, it has been described as having the dubious distinction of never winning a significant battle during the war, training a variety of militant Islamists from around the world, killing significant numbers of mujahideen from other parties, and taking a virulently anti-Western line. In addition to hundreds of millions of dollars of American aid, Hekmatyar also received the lion's share of aid from the Saudis. Bergen, Peter L., ''Holy war, Inc. : inside the secret world of Osama bin Laden'', New York : Free Press, c2001., p.69 Radio Free Europe reports that "in 2006, Hekmatyar appeared in a video aired on the Arabic language Al-Jazeera television station and declared he wanted his forces to fight alongside Al-Qaeda."

The ''lex loci celebrationis'' is a choice of law rule applied to cases testing the validity of a marriage (marriage (conflict)). For example, suppose that a person domiciled (domicile (law)) in Scotland and a person habitually resident in France, both being of the Islamic faith, go through an Islamic marriage ceremony in Pakistan where their respective families originated. This ceremony is not registered with the Pakistani authorities but they initially establish a matrimonial home in Karachi. After a year, they return to Europe. For immigration and other purposes, whether they are now husband and wife would be referred to the law of Pakistan because that is the most immediately relevant law by which to decide precisely the nature of the ceremony they went through and the effect of failing to register it. If the ceremony was in fact sufficient to create a valid marriage under Pakistani law and there are no public policy (public policy (law)) issues raised under their personal laws of ''lex domicilii'' or habitual residence, and under the ''lex fori'', they will be treated a validly married for all purposes, i.e. it will be an ''in rem'' outcome.

Russia Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China, as well as Western countries (especially the United States) supplied arms and technical knowledge to numerous countries and rebel forces in a global struggle between the Warsaw Pact nations and their allies against NATO and their allies called the Cold War. While the NATO countries used rifles such as the relatively expensive M14 (M14 rifle), FN FAL, and H&K G3 (Heckler & Koch G3) battle rifles and M16 (M16 rifle) assault rifle during this time, the low production and materials costs of the AK-47 meant that the Russia USSR could produce and supply its allies at a very low cost. Because of its low cost, it was also duplicated or used as the basis (List of weapons influenced by the Kalashnikov design) for many other rifles, such as the Israeli Galil (IMI Galil), Chinese Type 56 (Type 56 assault rifle), and Swiss (Switzerland) SIG SG 550. As a result, the Cold War saw the mass export of AK-47s by the Soviet Union and the PRC to their allies, such as the Nicaraguan Sandinistas, Viet Cong as well as Middle Eastern, Asian, and African revolutionaries. The United States also purchased the Type 56 from the PRC to give to the mujahideen guerrillas during the Soviet war in Afghanistan.
