When Great Britain was making their departures from the middle east, they
partitioned those countries in a way that helped keep them the way Great Britain
wanted them. The mixture of cultures, languages and religions have impeded
those nations from becoming nations on par with other nations around the world.
There has been so much infighting within countries that England didn't help
the world, as a whole in that process. Pakistan and India
haven't gotten along that well nor even Bangladesh. Pakistan and
Afghanistan have had that rugged border to contend with over the years and has
made a strong physical border and barrier. After all these years of war, the
1980s with Russia and the past 11 years with the United States of America and
allies, Afghanistan had the Taliban and other groups come in to get rid of their
ethnic shrines that existed for centuries. Tribal groups in
Afghanistan can't agree and those in Pakistan have had various political
regimes that have had problems also, over more tan centuries. Our
Secretary of State has a slim chance of getting peace in 4-years in that area.
Our military pullout will leave Afghanistan still wondering what tribes do.
