They will likely go shopping soon for Electronic warfare systems, multiple ADS mainly from Pakistan this will also boost Pakistan defense industry. They have drones but will likely need more drones plus JF-17 additions that comes with training and maintenance training package.

This is the time they need food and medicine more than anything else. If people are able to eat they are less likely to be recruited by militant organizations like Daesh.

They don't have money? :lol:

How're they running the state then?

They had enough money to fund their militias and operations. All they need to do is keep feeding the population and troops and keep the cycle going on. Money will start rolling in then.

They got paid, in bounties, for killing US/NATO soldiers too. They have many sources of money...

The right question is how much money they have and is it enough to sustain Afghanistan? Are they working on generating income from taxes? And so on and so forth.

We could sell them our old f-7pg’s. Pg’s will be enough for afghans
They don't need an air force, they need food, water, infrastructure and education if they want their country to stop being a shithole warzone and a leading exporter of terrorism. If they think their air force can stop the US or NATO from invading them again, they are completely delusional. The US can cripple any air force in the world within hours to days, bar the PLAAF.

Besides, who's a military threat to them, Tajikistan? If Tajikistan starts war mongering they know very well Pakistan will take it as an opportunity to strike the Indian air bases they host.

After being ravaged by war, in what seems like a nonstop cycle, Afghanistan is now going to emerge as a rising power, in-sha-Allah.

The key, in the pivotal moment in history, is for Iran and Pakistan to come together with Afghanistan, to establish TRUE MUSLIM unity.

For Iran, it is to let go that they're any different from Sunnis. As all Muslims belong to the Ummah of Nabi Muhammad Alaihi Salaat-u-Wassalam. And Iran should seek rapprochement with Afghanistan and Pakistan.

For Pakistan, well they need to let go of their delirious thinking of associating themselves with a hindu india. You are Muslim, Allah Subhanahu Wata'aalah has gifted you Pakistan, you exist as Pakistanis because of Allah Subhanahu Wata'aalah, not because you have any connections with a hindu india. Admit your lucid delusions and get over it, move on to what you are ... A Muslim!

Afghanistan, I hope that you have learnt from your past, as the present will be a test of your intelligence and the future will be a battle that you have to fight as being the Ummati of Rasoolallah Sallallaho Alaihi Wassalam. Approach a Shia Iran and a Sunni Pakistan, as being the unifying entity. There is a reason why Allah Subhanahu Wata'aalah has blessed you, the same reason why Allah Subhanahu Wata'aalah has blessed both Iran and Pakistan.

So be righteous in your conduct and do not squander away the blessings Allah has granted you.
