    It seems our government is attempting to install yet another Tajik controlled puppet government on the Durrani and Ghilzai tribes of the Pashtun People.

    The Tajik (who you might also know of as Farsi) and are an odd choice for USA to put in Control because they have strong ethnic ties to Iran.

    The Pashtun were the traditional rulers of Southern Afghanistan and their Taliban Government was a separatist government. While I agree that they were a horrible government they were what USA put into power after the Russians decided to quit mucking around there and left.

    About the only sane things to do are arm the hell out of the region and leave until they sort it all out on their own' or else give the Pashtun the southern provinces of Afghanistan and the tribal areas of Pakistan, arm the hell out of them again, and leave again until a government emerges from the rubble who you can actually negotiate with.

    Other than that and we will end up occupying the area just like South Vietnam and we have already spent more time in Afghanistan trying to force the Pashtun to accept Tajik rulers than we did in Vietnam trying to own the rubber plantations.
