  1. My time in Afghanistan:

    The time during the last King of Afghanistan was peaceful. He not only managed to balance all its tribes and keep them peaceful, but also managed to balance the international rivals. When the Russians built the airport of KABUL he permitted the American to build the airport of Kandahar. When the Russians built the road from the northern border to Kabul he permitted the Americans to build one from Kabul towards the South. The Germans trained the police, the Chinese assisted in Agriculture.

    The only mistake he made was to permit the Russians to train the air force. So they took advantage of it to kick out the KING, such is life… one cannot win all the time.
