I didnt think Trump and his neocon buddies would be reckless enough to invade Iran. We've basically eradicated the taliban, Balochistan is dying down, economy is getting better, our democratic institutions are becoming stronger. Compared to Gwadar, Chabahar is a low level project it won't really change much. Why would they use Iran? Afghanistan doesn't have much control over their terrirory to fight against the Taliban, they have basically become part and parcel of Afghan society. I love to be silly and joke around alot, but not at the expense of others feelings Not every Chabahar Fuck buddy in can be like Chabahar Fuck buddy in or china to do as they wish. China does economic activities but it's Russia's backyard. Quite a lot of strategic depth right there.
