That might be the whole point of those events, counter-Q attempt. Remember when we were asked “Whos next [after Iran]?” Many believed it to be Pakistan. The Paks were heavily involved in Afghanistan both during the Soviet time there and now while we have been there. Weve given them nearly 80 billion for no valid reason. As greeneyes (?) pointed out over a year ago, Pakistan is heavily involved in trafficking. Remember too that Afghanistan is the backdoor to China. There could be more behind the scenes than it appears.
People yammer about Big Bad Russia but imho Big Bad China is much more dangerous, to the whole world. China’s always trying to take the NE part of India, too.
I wonder if Q will mention this.
