Comments on: In scramble for Afghanistan, India looks to Iran Perspectives on Pakistan Thu, 01 Oct 2015 19:31:05 +0000 hourly 1 By: manishindia Thu, 15 Jul 2010 08:58:42 +0000 India and Iran must work together to find peaceful solution in Afghanistan. Eversince, Pakistan has started dialogue with Talibans, Haqani brothers, etc , the Pakistani designs are absolutely exposed , Pakistan wants to take Afghanistan back to Taliban days which will not only affect Iran but entire Central Asia . India with vast stakes in Afghanistan, must work with Iran , if necessary India should be ready to violate US led sanctions against Iran.

This is a fact and let no foreigner and I mean foreignerwho do not speak Pashto language and the dialect of the most powerful tribe. The former northern alliance folks are minorities and weak and accepted as the citizens of Afghanistan predominently in the very cold region. If they are unable to kow tow the Pashtoons line, they always have the option to return to their mother lands, Uzbekistan, Tajikstan etc. etc. India and Pakistan are non actors. They can carry on their affairs with the Kabul Govt. as in the past. The main question is if the Pashtoons are now in a position to break down the steel lock and have the unhindred access to the sea route with or without the support of their cousins living in Pakhtoonkhwa. The past arrangements of obtaining their supplies from the former North West frontier have proven to be restrictive.

They could make oil and gas deals with them, but the condition would be to cancel their military alliance with Israel. Iranian leaders are very allergic towards the USA and Israel. Besides India has to deal with Turkey and Brazil who are the new mentors of Iran. This means no Indian Faqir rope tricks with Iran. Is India in a position to change its political strategies in the region. Well we will have to see.

By: G-W Fri, 09 Jul 2010 15:11:39 +0000 I got a great idea.

How about nobody gets Afghanistan. Not China, not Pakistan, not India, not U.S., no outside forces, what so ever, especially Pakistani “strategic depth” 7th century goons.

In fact, how about Afghanistan for Afghans? Let the UN mentor the Afghans into the modern age. After all, the biggest gripe and biggest fear the Afghans have, is that they will lose their culture to outsiders.

Afghanistan should be administered by the UN, all countries that want to do business in Afghanistan should be going through the UN, this way, special interests cannot skew extract copper and other mineral resources from Afghanistan, like China is doing right now.

Indians and Iranians are brothers!

Upwards on the horizon the Eastern Sun rises
The light in the eyes of the Believers in Justice
Bahman is the zenith of our faith.
Your message, O Imam, independence, and freedom, the purpose of our lives,
is imprinted on our souls
O Martyrs! Your cries echo in the ears of time:
Be enduring, continuing, and eternal,
Islamic Republic of Iran!

Long live the Independence struggle of Jammu Kashmir

India has no desire to have puppets, but the Afghan govt’s loyalty should be to the all peoples living in Afghanistan.

The Pakistan army goal is to have a puppet, terrorist regime, who the P.A hope will be under their control. The welfare of Afghan people doesn’t come in this picture.
