Moderate Muslim, " The gall of telling a Pakistani Pashtun he is the intruder when he is going to visit and Afghani Pashtun is unbelievable."

Do you know that the Durand line was drawn between Afghanistan and then India in 1898 by the British and was said and agreed that it will apply for 100 years only that is till 1998. So the Pashtuns on eighter side of the Durand line were devided. But as Pakistan was carved out of India in 1947. It is about time that the part / land, which is on the Pakistan side be returned to Afghanistan , so the devided Pashtuns can unite , in other words back to original borders pre 1898.

You say " The main problem with the Pakistani / Afghani border is that the Coalition does not respect the tribal honor of the pakistani."

As I said that area does not belong to Pakistan, but to Pashtuns of Afghanistan. "They are autonomous and Westerners come into their homes attacking them is not going to help". Westerners are at war with Talibans and the Government of Afghanistan has invited them, so stop telling FIBS. By the way there are no Moderate Muslims anywhere, so please stop calling youself that.
