    Question in my mind from past many years. Why not Pakistan properly fence Pak-Afghan Border ?

    What are the hurdles btw ? Govt and Military spends millions/billions on roads highways etc etc. Why not fence Pak-Afghan border to stop illegal refuges and illegal immigrants from Afghanistan? is there any plan exists or under consideration ?

    Technically Afghan refuges burden on Pakistan and Pakistani people. In fact half of these Afghanis control trade particularly automobiles, parts and now construction in Pakistan. Today, hard to send them back but at least take some steps to control future. Powers and neighbors use them against us, against Pakistanis.

    Stop day dreaming, days of tribes taking over governments only happen in Afghanistan. Weakened by fence? Its not like FATA pashtuns can vote and decide future of Afghanistan, hell even 3 million Afghan pashtun refugees does not participate in elections. Which mean Afghanistan at the moment is completely in control of non-pashtuns. They can make Afghan pashtun president but that doesn't change ground realities.

    Which again tells us numbers alone doesn't make much difference, Pashtuns should have been dominant group in Afghanistan. In coming years FATA will be integrated with rest of Pakistan, and border will be fenced. The only way out for Afghanistan is to recognize border otherwise more misery awaits them.

    Anyway it doesn't mean it will stop movement, but Afghans will have to get visa. The movement is only one way mostly from Afghanistan to Pakistan not the otherway around.

    I know many Pukhtoons, tribal Pukhtoons who side and will die for Pakistan than Pakhtoonistan. Please take back 3 million of your people from us. Please. Hahaha yeah you cant even keep them in your country.

    There is never gonna be peace in Afghanistan until you guys simmer down and accept Duran line. Dawood got raped by lightly armed Tribals. OUR PAKISTANI PAKHTOON TRIBALS. Your country went downhill from there. Now it's a shithole. I shouldnt say it, but it is what it is. 13 years we havent broken down, now it wont happen.

    My Grandparents would talk about people dreaming of us being broken up, hasnt happened till now. Wont happen now.

    Army and Govt is Punjab dominated because for one it is the most educated province, secondly Punjab accounts for 50% of the Population of Pakistan. So yes, if you improve your math skills it's only predictable it is gonna be Punjab " dominated". Funny only Afghanis say this shit. Not my countrymen. Some do, but then again they are miserable and will be miserable if they had all the monies in the world.

    One day it will be fenced, trust me. We need an unfriendly govt for it in Afghanistan. What do yo think will happen when non Pukhtoons run your Pukhtoon majority country? Happiness, peace stability? :)

    ISAF wont be there forever would it?

    Wrrora I don't need any assurances....I've got plenty of them as friends & family to know that they are very patriotic !

    In fact I remember in one of our heated discussions a friend of mine from Dara Adamkhel said to me 'Tum Punjabi shaiddd Pakistani ko chorrr dou par Pukhtoon kabhiii nahin choreiii gaaa.....iss Pakistan keh liyeee hamareiii buzorgoon nei Kashmiri seh leh kar aaaj kal kii isss jung tukkk bohat qurbaniyaan deiiin heiii uss ko hum kiya raingaa kareinn geii - You Punjabis may leave Pakistan one day but us Pukhtoons never will because after all our ancestors have given sacrifices for this country from Kashmir to the present conflict....would we forget all of that ?'

    I just wanted to know whether you are man enough to go to the Tribal Areas alone ? :P

    we have to fence the Durand Line, we cannot afford to keep this Pak-Afghan border open anymore, hence we have to fence it, even if it costs money, there is just no other way, there are many border which are build on difficult terrain's north/south Korea's border ,Sino-Russia border, turkey/Iran Border Sino-central Asian states borders, the Indian fencing in the mountainous terrain along the line of control on its side ,we had enough with these Afghans claiming our land, & its high time to tell them that Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa, F.A.T.A & Baluchistan are Pakistani territories the Baloch & Pashtuns of Pakistan our Pakistanis ,it doesn't matter whether Afghanistan accept it or not , its our land & its our rules. Afghans can do whatever they want to do inside their country for all we care
    we should fence the Pakistan-Afghanistan border , fencing & guarding the Durand line should be done ASAP
    in this case we should take a lesson or two from Iran , afghans even claim certain areas of Iran, but frankly Iran doesn't even give two $h!ts, not only did it fenced the border , heck it even shoots anyone entering it with out a visa !
    Yemen claims the entire Jeddah region of Saudi Arabia ! (no kidding), But the Saudis have fenced it none the less, another example is when Iran started fingering Turkey (& @ that time Turkey was economically down ) but Turkey fenced its border none the less, so why cant we ? all this talks of it will cost too expensive is nothing but putting our heads further under the sand, countries needs to do what is in their interest. & if that means fencing the Durand line, so be it. plus if we fence it
    today it will cost us like $10 to $15 bln max, but if we don't then God Forbid, tomorrow, it can cost us Pakistan ! so
    as I said before ,there is just no other way, but to fence this border anyhow
