Democratic party front runner Joe biden, at a democratic party debate, floats the idea of bases in Pakistan after withdrawal to keep a check on threats that might emerge from Afghanistan. (For context) That entire debate in US regarding withdrawal is, what if Afghanistan becomes safe havens for international terrorists again. Also this is an interesting sentence. "Its three different countries. Pakistan owns the three provinces in the east". Don't know what exactly he means by that. Was he talking about Former FATA, KPK & Balochistan in regards to being eastern provinces of Afghanistan or saying that Taliban control eastern provinces of Afghanistan? You be the judge.
