Iran is not Tajikstan.........proper Tajiks are people of Panjsher, Badakhshan, Tajikistan etc....tell us about the warriors, poets, artists, kings, architecture, historians of modern day Tajikstan, the heartland of Tajiks.
I told you Tajik and Persian are the same thing. Samanids are supposed to be the fathers of the modern Tajik nation yet they said in one famous edict "here, in this region, the language is Persian, and the kings of this realm are Persian kings."

May I know why you look down on Tajikistan? Despite being a mountainous country, which cultural cities (Samarkand, Bukhara and Termez) were taken away from them, they still are far better off than Pakistan and Afghanistan. The average Tajik is much better educated than the average Pakistani/Afghan (let alone the average Pashtun). Here, check their HDI rate. Far ahead of your country.

While in Pashtunistan you guys are burning schools down, throwing acid on children faces and beheading teachers, in Tajikistan they are planning to build the largest theatre in the world and the world tallest dam.

You seem to know Pashtuns a lot better than most of them know themselves.

I would agree with you in that when it comes to things like art and literature,empire building, and even general forward thinking, Pashtuns are not as advanced as Farsi speakers/Tajiks. We have always been busy fighting within ourselves or against invaders. Conflict is a terrible thing and keeps you behind in ways you cannot imagine.

Manhood, however, quite often can be a double edged sword-if you know what I mean.

Salamoona wrora.

Indeed, manhood and intelligence should be two sides of the same coin. But still I admire that.

I have always pointed out that Pashtun martial nature is one of their biggest flaws. I mean yeah its great to be indomitable but at what price? Is it really worth it when it keeps you behind the world? Sometimes its better to accept that you can't control everything and just get over it. My point is everybody is taking advantage of Pashtun warmongerism. If you get rid of it you will be the main bsneficiary of it..

Oh it's horrible for you, brother. You are right, it did come from across the Hindu Kush for you, i.e. from Peshawar.

We eat too much meat. It's not healthy.

Art and literature, maybe... but empire building you're wrong about. ASD had a great empire. He's just 1 example.

Not a bad example brother, but his achievements, great as they were could have been greater if there was no internal strife amongst his own people causing him to divert his attention from empire building to dealing with those problems.
