Difference Between A Shura and A Jirga
The difference between a Shura and a Jirga is sometimes a hazy concept to explain but fortunately someone has done the explanation for us. I have stumbled across an online posting that explains it fully (or at least to my satisfaction). Read "Tribal Engagement Tutorial: The Jirga and the Shura", by Major Jim Gant and MAC McCallister and posted on the Steven Pressfield Blog, March 11, 2010. You can learn more about Afghan jirgas and shuras here.
