Tribes and borders

    Steve Is that it, then?

    I was thinking about the various "hotspots" around the world, and came to realization that almost all of them share one thing in common:

    The borders of the modern nations do not respect ancient tribal boundaries. It seems to me that the drawing of lines on the map, and the enforcement of territorial boundaries flies in the face of ancient tribal, ethnic, and clan ties, rivalries, alliances, etc.

    I wonder how much, if at all, this contributes to the constant strife or warfare we see in such regions?
