#1 Again, NOT GOOD NEWS FOR IRAN AS PER AVOIDING POSSIBLE ANTI-NUCPROG WAR VEE THE US.
As per POLITICAL-GEOPOL DIALECTICISM, the Mullahs in Tehran may publicly support BFF Islamabad, but it wouldn't surprise me one bit iff they were covertly pressuring andor funding Pak Politicos, Street Protestors to demand that the NATO supply routes be open???
E.G. TOPIX > IRANIAN INFLUENCE IN SOUTH AZERBAIJAN RISING DUE TO POOR ECONOMY. Many poor Muslim Azeris or other travel to-n-fro the Iran-Azeri border for everything, esepc as per Iran.
Azerbaijan is part of the vital post-Pak NDN for the US-NATO into Afghanistan, while [neo-Persianist]IRAN = RIVAL TURKEY = SEES HEGEMONIC "GREATER IRAN" = "IRANIAN UNION" IN THE C.A.R. + CAUCASUS.
