Scorpio: Mush cannot afford to LOSE the war there. But... he cannot afford to WIN it either, because then he loses his biggest leverage against the AmirKhans. So this may explain why there is no Bugtistan-type decisive operation against Mullah FM. However, the Baki Fauji in Pakhtoonistan must also ...

would it not be nice if the administrators removed the comments from between the scenarios, then it will make excellent reading.
