      The Creation of Afghanistan    

The world considers the War in Afghanistan to be a local war, but in fact there are more countries involved ~ Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, and Baluchistan, however knowledge of the latter is limited, which is a mistake. Baluchistan gained independence from Great Britain in 1947, based upon Treaties from the 19th Century, but was then annexed in 1948 by Pakistan.   To understand the Afghanistan situation one must also fully understand the factor of the Pashtun people and of Baluchistan ~ Baluchistan Insurgency and the complex situation in the region between Sunni and Shiite Muslims and national aspirations of the whole region.

The War in Afghanistan, in the minds of the Islamic World and the Pashtun, is actually a religious War and a War for Independence and without understanding that fact the War in Afghanistan taking place today can never be fully understood:
