first i said scrappy drones not real high techThe way ANA is surrendering and losing ground US is not stupid to supply them drones ,and later that drone tech fell into pakistani or Irani hands.
No way US can have a base in any central Asian state because all those asian states are still closely allied with Russia and Russia still has a huge influence on them . Just Taliban were close to Tajikistan border ,not a inch was penetrated and see how active Russian forces became in Tajikistan.
Well after suffering that much I think our generals and politicians ko aqal aa gayi hai. This time no base for US. And even when US had a base here ,still ultimately they faced defeat. They knew pakistan will play on both sides ,will give a base and will keep supporting Taliban. The end result will be no different.
2nd USA ne phly hi drone base set ker liya hai
it is middle of no where and no road connected to it . ap bhi badshah hain janab
