Re: India to send 120,000 troops to Afghanistan

- Non-lethal supplies (food, medical aid etc.) will be obtained from CAR republics. Military supplies will be reinforced by Russia and transported via CAR region in addition to being flown-in by IAF. Pakis will have to allow these over-flights . That's not going to happen...at least not voluntarily.
