Pakistan has pretty good lobbyists.. Yesterday there was senate hearing and today, Imran Khan is on an interview denying that Pakistan did any wrong..
Pakistan fries the fish on its own oil. It is US money that goes to pay for the lobbyists who in turn lobby for more money to be granted to Porkies. It is win win for both. So, obviously the lobbies wont want to kill the golden goose.

Btw, the deep state might have abandoned directly ruling Afghanistan and thereby exploiting the resources, but they would be reluctant to let China to get a free access to the region either. They now sooner or later they would have to cut the umbilical cord from Beijing as once Beijing gets the upper hand, Beijing would no longer be generous with the dough. There's nobody better than the US deep state to know the Chinkies as it is them who provided all the lumbers to Beijing and Commies to build the stairs. So, they would be weary and would like to keep a backdoor open - and who could be better backdoor than the sh#thole porkistan?


Small Tajikistan stands out as Afghanistan's only neighbor to condemn the new Taliban regime.

Tajikistan never had an independent diplomatic stand. I doubt any of the post-USSR stans have any say where broader diplomatic or strategic move is concerned. They know what happened with Ukraine and they won't dare antagonize Russia.

It is Putin showing his stance. Putin historically never liked terrorists and how he dealt with Chechen terrorists is very well known. So, he obviously wouldn't let the desert cult to assert in his backyard in one of the Stans.

Few months will give the picture if Afghan people want Taliban in power.
If they actually get together and put together a huge resistance movement, then we can maybe support them somehow. But that seems unlikely, we don't have directly supply lines. We aren't US who can use Pak, we're the last country who can do that. At most we can use Tajik air force bases. But that is limited as Pak air force can cut off supply line there, we would have to capture GB. That entails a possible nuclear war. Our BMD aren't ready to intercept tactical nukes yet. That risk is only worth it if Pak attacks us directly, not to support a bunch of Kaffir hating 4th world Afghans.

There are multiple ways India can support Afghanistan. Iranian Foreign minister is coming to India. India just concluded the military exercise with Russia.

Source? I can't find anything on it. But it doesn't matter unless they themselves are willing to fight. In any case, that is a long ways away. My original point was there is no need to get super excited over every tweet made from the Panjshir resistance or simp for them.

EU parliament passed the resolution against Pakistan. EU slammed Pakistan for its involvement in Panjshir war against Afghan resistance.

They recognized Ahmad Masoud as the leader of Resistance.

Republic TV report.

EU confirmed the Pakistani involvement in Panjshir, Afghanistan.
EU needs to come out from the shadow of US and build their own, strong foreign policy. They really need to lookout for their interests beyond NATO.

Were Afghan women forced to attend the pro-Taliban rally?

"We were forcibly made to wear those burqas and asked to sit down in the theater"
