With US forces being ejected from Kyrgyzstan and with more troubles supplying troops through Pakistan, the United States is considering the Islamic Republic of Iran as a supply route.
According to the director of research for the Washington Institute for Middle East Policy, Pat Clawson, the Obama plan would have Iran make commercial purchases of food, water, toilet paper, and other “non-strategic items,” then send them into Afghanistan via its “own commercial channels,” he said.
If approved, the bilateral arrangement using Iran “would substantially reduce the logistics burden of the United States,” said Clawson.
Very interesting. Iran may profit off of these deals and have a chance to slip in some Farsi-speaking spies into the country as well.
