    Everything has an end, and everything comes to an end, even death itself. So go the rhymes of Afghan history, for the year is 1747 and the mighty Iranian empire of Nader Afshar came to an abrupt end with his assassination. His untimely departure carried with him a premonition of death and set in motion a series of events that would become the epic drama that is the history of Afghanistan.

    Having established an empire in the Muslim world that was second only to the Ottomans, Ahmad Shah was a towering figure. Not surprisingly, his death left the British, Afghans, Sikhs and Russians scrambling to fill the power vacuum. Patented as the Great Game, this was not a new world but an extension of what began in the old one.

    Britain's quest to install a puppet regime in Kabul during the Anglo-Afghan War resulted in one of its greatest military disasters.

    With an army of roughly 31,800 soldiers, accounting for both British and Sikh forces, William Hay Macnaghten entered Afghanistan. As the advisor to the Indian viceroy, Macnaghten was tasked to subjugate the Afghans by installing a puppet regime in Kabul. But the plan was a little off the mark. In the coming years, while the blood of Afghans manured the ground, the British Empire was dealt with one of its greatest military disasters.

    Re: Dawn of the Afghan Empire

    I think we should consider that this endless war could be a sign of Allah's wrath on Afghanistan rather than any heroics of mujahideen

    Afghanistan might have kicked UK's bu** but they have a serious widespread disease in their culture; bacha baz :

    With the looming withdrawal of Nato troops and a persistent insurgent threat, Afghanistan is in a precarious position. Innumerable tragedies have beleaguered rural Afghans throughout the past decades of conflict — perpetual violence, oppression of women, and crushing poverty have all contributed to the Hobbesian nature of life in the Afghan countryside....
