#Taliban field commanders, particularly those in southwestern #Afghanistan and those who worked with #Iran in the past, are more susceptible to pressure to target #US bases and interests, should Tehran turn in that direction
Most far out thing these days... the negotiation process between the Taliban and the US about the withdrawl of American troops from Afghanistan... To put it mildly, it is like watching doctors negotiating the withdrawal of surgical tools with the most lethal of diseases...
