Being anti Muslims and pro Zionists is enough reason to kick these traitors out
Life doesnt always work like that. Else Iran wont have friendly/close ties with India, despite Israel being one of India's largest security provider and one of its closest partner.
The Iranians have finally accepted that alliance with India is not of much benefit on the ground. Indians talk big but offer little help in reality. Saddamists saw this a few decades ago. Kabul/USA saw this more recently. Armenia is seeing this today. In the future.....UAE and GCC will also see this. :pop:
Might be true. However India doesn't have the capabilities to protect those countries you mentioned even if they wanted to. They have their own security threats/ issues in their neighbourhood to solve which they haven't even been able to handle yet. So how can they afford to be helping protect others? lol

In the chaotic days after the attacks of September 11th, Ryan Crocker, then a senior State Department official, flew discreetly to Geneva to meet a group of Iranian diplomats. “I’d fly out on a Friday and then back on Sunday, so nobody in the office knew where I’d been,” Crocker told me. “We’d stay up all night in those meetings.” It seemed clear to Crocker that the Iranians were answering to Suleimani, whom they referred to as “Haji Qassem,” and that they were eager to help the United States destroy their mutual enemy, the Taliban. Although the United States and Iran broke off diplomatic relations in 1980, after American diplomats in Tehran were taken hostage, Crocker wasn’t surprised to find that Suleimani was flexible. “You don’t live through eight years of brutal war without being pretty pragmatic,” he said. Sometimes Suleimani passed messages to Crocker, but he avoided putting anything in writing. “Haji Qassem’s way too smart for that,” Crocker said. “He’s not going to leave paper trails for the Americans.”

Crocker described sharing information with the Iranians, including getting a map detailing the locations of the Taliban and giving Iran the location of an al-Qaeda facilitator, whom Iran soon detained. Crocker said the negotiator he was working with told him, “Haji Qassem is very pleased with our cooperation.”
I think everybody(who cares to research about US /Iran cooperation against the Taliban in 2001)knows about this. Moreover, i don't see anything wrong here. Iran and the US had shared interests in toppling the Taliban. In fact the Taliban was an even bigger enemy/threat for Iran than for the US. :agree: Same with Iraq. So i don't see why Iran wouldn't have (indirectly) cooperated with the U.S to topple those two regimes/countries.
Geo politics is all about interests. Only fools/religious zealots or those who choose to be ignorant wouldn't realise this. Not everything is always as it looks on TV/media, there are usually many machinations going on behind the scenes. As far as your strategic interests converge, why not cooperate? win-win for both sides. :D:chilli:

Don;t forget their nemesis is USA and we harboured US military bases in Jacobabad, Shamsi as well as providing US Navy landing rights on the Baloch coast. So always think of the your boot as well as others.
Much respect for this post!!! Iran and Pakistan are destined to be friends, due to geography and religion, but both have had hard journeys to get to where they are now. I sense their relationship will bloom more very soon...MAINLy due to reduction in US demands and global position in the region.
Chabahar is not a worry as US has given sanctions waiver. No such waiver for any oil field in Iran.
THen why has/did INdia move SO SLOWLY on developing Chabahar port???? Iran gave India its only access to Afghanistan via Chabahar but INdia moved so slow, China has taken the port over..smh.

Thid is the reality of China in Iran oil-gas project. Even China (an enemy of US) is unabel to do anything in fave of US snavtions what can other countries do?

China no longer in South Pars project: Iranian minister

Except of course that china now finds itself being economically blackmailed over huawei by the americans and that countries who wanted to do business with huawei now cant out of fear of americas economic and political displeasure .
You know it occurs to me that if nations just sit back and do nothing while allowing a bully and a thug like america to just get away with economic blackmail,it simply further encourages it to try more of the exact same sort of economic blackmail and thuggery because it knows it can get away with it because no one is willing to do anything to attempt to stop it.
Maybe if enough countries had had enough courage to have been willing to step up and stand up to america and its bullsh!t economic blackmail from the very get go and to make it clear that this was simply unacceptable behavior,well maybe now you wouldnt have to worry about who you can or cannot trade with or even worse having to put americas political interests ahead of your own economic interests.
Mind you it seems that some nations are only too willing to kowtow.......or even worse become vassals.

LOL at the fake news and Hype.


It was INDIA that discovered the Gas Field.

But India was unable to conclude the technical studies which is a precursor for commercial negotiations.

Iran waited, but due to due to imposition of US sanctions on Iran in November 2018 India was unable to raise funds from banks for the project nor could work proceed.

Which is why Iran decided to shift the project to local companies.
