Historically yes, but in modern Afghanistan the Tajiks and other groups play an important part.Without the Pashtuns, there is no Afghanistan. Afghan is another term for Pashtun in a historical sense. The Pashtuns are Afghanistan's lifeblood.
Fair enough on both counts.
Upon further examination of the period, if Afghanistan had intervened during the war it would probably go just like it did in real life during the 3rd anglo-afghan war (1919), ending in more or less a draw (no territorial concessions).
