After the crusaders - US, Nato and their allies left a few days ago can Kabul and Afghanistan regain the peaceful times? The answer is that there is more bloodshed to come. The crusaders have stoked the country into factions based on tribalism, politics, religion. This is the standard divide and destroy policy. The animosity amongst the factions is a wildfire of vicious cycles of kill and counter-kill.
Peace times in Kabul:
Kabul's Mandawi bazaar
Mazari Road in the Dasht-e-Barchi neighbourhood in western Kabul. It is a large Hazara peoples' enclave.
Gunsmithing is an established thriving art.
For centuries Pathan tribemen's jealously guarded the Khyber Pass, the gateway to Kabul from the Pakistan border.
