shlombay, that's a very in-depth and analytical article. I disagree with some bits and pieces but overall, it's a very interesting read.

Where do you disagree?

Small things - like when he says the people of 'NWFP' opposed the Afghan policy or the one-unit system. In fact, one of the most powerful interior ministers of the one-unit system was a Pashtun. Also, only Bachaa Khan and a few other wise men opposed Zia's Afghan policy, the majority was drunk with dreams of Jihad.

And in the concluding paragraphs, he talks about Pashtuns and the federation. He paints a reality in which a good place in a federation is the ideal solution... I disagree with that.

But I don't wanna start nit-picking here!
