Re: Iran News and Discussions

/Putting my strategic thinker hat on and throwing another option on the table/ If ever the moment comes, IMO dumping Iran for Arabs is probably a better move if GoI considers it.

Re: Endgame of NaPakistan: How and what afterwards

Is Eyeraan really interested in creating trouble/Surgical strikes of its own at Paki border when it is slowly being surrounded by KSA led armies. I doubt if they openly want to sabotage their relationship with 'Ummah Birader' Pakistan.
