Throughout the American presence in Afghanistan, the Pakistanis played a double game. They pretended to support us while actively working with the Taliban against us. Our erstwhile allies smiled in our face while stabbing us in the back. The bill for this duplicity is now coming due.
Oh, and how do you feel with Iran and Afghanistan/Pakistan as nuclear powers trained on Israel?
And, of course, Pakistan is a nuclear state so the Taliban would get access to those. Lovely.
Where does China fit into this, considering that China has the Taliban signing up to the BRI?
