Afghanistan should have been broken up after the Taliban were overthrown. Give the Pushtan region to Pakistan and the Uzbek region to Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and the part that is Shia (small part) to Iran.

That would have been the best alternative than trying to keep a failed state composed of multi-ethnic people all hostile to each other inside artificial borders.

re: #1 Destro

Have you actually talked too any Afghans or even seen what the opinion of the people living in Afghanistan is? It’s universally opposed by everyone who matters in Afghanistan, you would start a revolt.

Fyi, most of Afghanistan can’t be broken down into a “Pushtan” area or “Uzbek” area or “Shia” area. Outside a few concentrated area the population is fairy mixed.

I actually had a class in college with several Afghans before 9/11 in New York City (this was before they were linked with the al-Qaeda so they were exotic rather than scary) and they were actually very secular. But from my readings, outside of the Kabul area, most of Afghanistan is very tribal with no mixing.
