Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You are actually right. What I meant was that the old political line was abruptly discontinued by the recent events (recent meaning 10-20 years, but that's a rough estimation by all accounts).

FWIK, there is a current conflict between the old elite (situated in the country) and the new elite, basically warlords, operating from the cities. Indeed, who wants to give up political and economical power?

The Pashtun, a tribe found in Pakistan and neighboring Afghanistan are foreseen as the new power group in the region.

Be careful! Is it classified?
