    There Was A Time When Sony Samsung TV Sets Were Assembled In The Country No More Thanx To "Afghan Transit" So Many TVs Smuggled Into The Country That These Industries Just Became Unviable.

    Good luck to Afghanistan. Sooner you cut ties with certain neighbours with evil intentions. The sooner you will prosper. India will support you economically where ever possible.

    Cool down your emotions mate.
    Technically, You cannot ban sea access to a landlocked country. Neither can put extra taxes and tolls than what you do on vehicles carrying your own stuff. It is against international rules.:-)

    Well most of the Europe share all the same that you just mentioned. The British Crown is actually descendants of German royal family and related to almost all other royal houses in and around Europe. But did that stop the European nations from fighting against each other for centuries ???? Did it ever stopped two great wars of mankind from happening ????

    So race, Language, Culture, Religion etc. are absolute bullshit unless and until there are convergence of national interests. :p:
