In this Sunday, Oct. 21, 2012 photo, an Afghan man on his motorcycle is stopped by a member of Afghanistan's elite Civil Order Police at a roadblock in Marjah, southern Helmand province, Afghanistan. As the U.S. and NATO close out their mission in Afghanistan preparing for the final withdrawal of combat troops by the end of 2014, the worry looms large that fresh outbursts of ethnically motivated fighting would send the country into a spiral of chaos and violence.
