Afghanistan Diary Note: An Afghan Insult Against Pakistan

Afghan shop owner to me as we were discussing his price for various flags:  "Pakistan (pwfff), my grandfather is older than that country."

Pakistan's Independence: 1947
Afghanistan's Independence:  Hard to say as parts of the country have been doing their own thing with only nominal outside oversight since historical records began.
