At 38:00 mts. Chooha Nawaz drags India into a Pak-India equilitis, suggesting BOTH countries need to work with each other, which plays absolutely well with naive Americans, without mentioning the Koranic concept of war which drives Paki hatred for Indians. CF UNDERSTANDS Pakistan COMPLETELY. Why did she not say this before? Oh, Chris, if you only had the courage to have said this a long time back, perhaps a fewer of my students/soldiers would be ended disabled or dead. Please, let us all have the moral conviction to stand up to Pakistan's perfidy and end this menace to human civilization.
At 16:00 mts. timeline, CF opines about the difficulty of transporting supplies via Russia too, as they will not allow lethal weapons pass through their territory. She also mentions Chabahar, Iran as perhaps an alternate route peppering it with words like "bizzare" (in a positive sense). I regret there is a drumbeat in our country against Iran but India can help normalize realtions between these Iran and the West. The post-khomeni, younger generation Iranians are primed to discard radical Islam and embrace a more western, democratic, secular Pre-Islamic, civilization. They need our help to achieve this. Ahmedinijad (and his very close advisers) can be our gateway to build bridges to Iran. Instead of fighting the clergy, we have demonized him instead. U.S. and India must engage Iran. It is delusional to think that Russia can suppplant Pakistan as an effective alternate route. The pincer movement by Pakistan and Russia can be lethal and we may find ourselves with two (instead of one) hostage takers if we have to depend upon the Russians as well.
