Summary/Abstract: Each country is responsible for its own fate! But what happens when the world powers and neighboring states get involved in political and social structure of a country? Civil strife occur, based on division of the population to support either their own government or the invading powers, seen as liberating forces. It is also the case of Afghanistan who, within two centuries, has managed to conquer its independence, to unify under one leader and later to divide, to wear a continuous internal war and lead on its shoulders the religious or ethnic differences of other states. From the middle of the twentieth century, the Afghan state was in a constant motion, ending the monarchy, passing through two coups and two foreign invasions. Civil War waged on Afghan territory has led the country deeply into poverty, despair and saturation, but the fight against terrorism, worn by American troops against Osama bin Laden brought the Afghan state below the existence. After the fall of the Taliban, Afghanistan started a positive evolution towards an independent state with democratic elections, rights for women and a centralization of power. Despite all domestic and international efforts, Afghanistan is and will be a major problem for the large community of world powers.
