Because it's a nightmare.
Two hundred million people in a country with some of the most hostile
territory on earth and a large population of intractable tribesmen who
consider the blood feud to be the normal way of doing business and the
education of women is fundamentally evil.
That's six times as big, and with a nastier population than, Iraq...
It's steeper as well...

Pakistan got really nasty with the Indians and started putting large
numbers of terrorists over the border, along with huge quantities of
forged Indian currency in an attempt to destroy India's economy.
As soon as India looked like doing something military about it the
Chinese gave them nuclear weapons.
Pakistan's everyone's favourite cat's paw...

Because it's Afghanistan, but even nastier and with lots more people.
Forget the Pakistani educated liberal middle class, they're as much
victims as everyone else and most of those who can get out do so. The
problem is an army with far too many religious fanatics who see their
destiny as ruling the whole of South Asia.
The Pakistani Army generals honestly seem to believe that their destiny
is to swoop down on the soft effete dwellers on the plains and conquer
than as their forefathers did, and for that they'd like Afghan
tribesmen to help.
Now the soft effete dwellers on the plains (in India) worked out that
modern war is about technology decades ago and insist that any soldiers
they recruit have a reasonable education and any officers have a
bachelors degree and so promptly thrashed the Pakistanis every time they
have attacked in recent years.
