  • Afghan civil war WITHOUT soviet intervention

    WI the Afghanistan fell into civil war between soviet inspired tajiks/uzbeks / hazaras in the north and Pak supported Pashtuns in the south ?
    Will the US still be interested in the conflict ?
    What do you as the possible outcome ?

    Sounds like a normal day therefor the past 3,000 years

    I may be wrong, but for several decades to the 1970s Afganistan had a bit less internal conflict than usual. The leaders seem to have been fairly adroit at defusing major disagreements. perhaps the rising global economy of that era helped. So there is the possibility yet another Pashtun Uzbek squabble would sputter out, or at a very low level. If there is no soviet intervention or instigation at all the level of warfare we have seen there in the past thirty years may have been avoided, at least for another generation.

      I agree but my reading of the era prior to the invasion showed Afghanistan being a fairly decent country to live in.

          Kabul was also part of the Hippie Trail, making it a popular destination for them as well.

              If lets say it happens in the 70s then the Pak army will likely back the Pashtun elements and Soviets may back the Tajik/uzbeg ones.
              The US /KSA may back Pakistan and can this lead to a division of the country along ethnic lines ?

                Pakistan leaders would see advantages in that. They have long wondered about obtaining stratigic depth vs India in Afganistan. & Pakistan has a large Pashtun population. Dividing the Pashtuns from the Afganis is a step towards connecting them to Pakistan.
