When Pakistan, &cet, first split off from India, I had another primary interest... which led me to observe that this New Nations deal was in some respects remarkably similar to the largish chunks of "Joint Use Territory" the U.S. had drawn borders for with lines on maps when it had delimited the Navajo and Hopi Nations. That had never worked well, and the only thing preventing major outbursts of violence was the presence of the Federal Government & Army.

The whole deal of Powerful Entities drawing lines on maps, with little regard of or respect for the ethnicities of the people living in those areas, has so often worked out disatrously that I've often wondered "When will they learn?" Eventuallly (& only fairly recently *sigh) I figured out that this was the wrong question. It should be "When will they ever care?" Considering the ways in which modern Big Business (which runs most of the larger nations, ahd includes the Military-Industrial Complex) profits from ware, they're never going to care about ordinary people.
