The Great Game!
08/08/11

The Great Game was a term used for strategic rivalry and conflict between British empire and Russian empire for supremacy in central Asia.The classic great game period is generally running from the Russo--Persian treaty of 1813 to the Anglo-Russian Convention of 1907.This Great Game has taken a new phase and many countries are interested to have influence in Pakhtunkhwa and Afghanistan to capture Pakhtuns,rich natural resources and also want to gain power in the central Asia in order to occupy its oil,gas and rich mineral reservoirs,but Afghanistan and Pushtuns are great hurdles in their ways.
