Khyber Pass Wins Again

What is that, like 4 – 0?

It’s easy to stop a war if you control the supply lines. Just put a ‘kink in the hose.’ Without stuff — fuel and equipment — there’s no war.

Pakistan has virtually shut down US supply lines to Afghanistan after US-Pak relations soured to the latest low. They can still bring in some stuff, but not nearly enough fuel and supplies to prosecute a war.

Interesting — no mention of fuel supply in the piece at all. Fuel supply is the immediate issue. It takes an endless convoy of tanker trucks to make big war in Afghanistan. You live by the power, you die by the power. Lao Tzu. Look it up. Khyber Pass wins again.

WASHINGTON — Thousands of tons of military equipment intended for the Afghan army and police is stranded in Pakistan, which for months has refused to reopen ground supply routes for NATO convoys despite high-level U.S. pressure, a new Pentagon report says.

Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline

The U.S. opposes the pipeline.

Ahmedinejad left Pakistan Friday after meeting with Pakistan’s president Asif Ali Zardari and Afghan president Hamid Karzai, a trilateral summit seeking a formula to stabilize conditions in Afghanistan.

Karzai represents the part of Afghanistan that the U.S. supposedly had under control.

A joint statement issued by Pakistan’s foreign ministry after the meeting said the three countries agreed to “develop mutually beneficial cooperation in the energy, mining and minerals, agriculture and other sectors” without providing further details.

But an Iranian official in Islamabad who spoke to CBS News on condition of anonymity said, “The IP [Iran-Pakistan] gas pipeline is very close to our heart. President Ahmedinejad indicated Iran’s intent to finance the project on the Pakistani side if Pakistan has difficulty with finding the money”.

It’s worth it though, because there’s so much good war going on.
