Tajik Grip on Afghan Army Signals New Ethnic War

Contrary to the official portrayal of the Afghan National Army (ANA) as ethnically balanced, the latest data from U.S. sources reveal that the Tajik minority now accounts for far more of its troops than the Pashtuns, the country’s largest ethnic group.

The massive shift in the ethnic composition of ANA troops in recent years is leading to another civil war between the Pashtuns and a Tajik-led anti-Pashtun ethnic coalition similar to the one that followed the fall of the Soviet-supported regime in 1992, according to some observers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wonderful; more ethnic civil war eminently possible, courtesy of the US and NATO invasion and occupation of Afghanistan!

It might have been possible to have screw up this country even more than the US and NATO occupation has succeeded in doing, but it's pretty hard to imagine how.

And what is Obama poised to do to add insult to injury?!?!

Call for more troops, soon going into the 9th year of this bloody quagmire.

Isn't doing more of the same, but expecting a different outcome, one of the classic descriptions of insanity?!?
