Yea that is right, Afghanistan has a long history of being at war and Pakistan will have influence. However, the instability of Pakistan is very concerning. As I've mentioned in another thread I don't believe the drone warfare is very effective in making the region safe as well. Overall, it doesn't seem like much was accomplished by a decade + of Nato involvement.
