Guest Opinion

A strong central government in Kabul, Afghanistan will never happen.
Afghanistan will always have two centers of power. The North Alliance has its power center in Mazar Shariff and controlling Kabul are the Tajik, Hazana and Uzbek.
The largest ethnic group is the Pashtun, with 38 percent and their center is Kandahar. The Taliban are Pashtun but even among the Pashtun populate only 15 percent want the Taliban to return to power. The Pashtun in the south distrust the central government, which has no influence and does not provide any government services or justice to the south.
