#2 This is good. The elections are over.
I hope we don't mess this up.

#3 Now that it looks like we're about to hand over Afghanistan to the Taliban, these guys decide to make nice. A day late, and a dollar short. I hope they had fun jeering from the sidelines. Because our problems are about to become their problems, given the Taliban's ambitions in Central Asia, and the likelihood that Afghanistan will become both a training ground and a funnel for jihadis and equipment into the region.

#4 There would be so much electronic espionage against the US on that base that anyone who stayed there for a week would get leukemia in a month.

#5 Compare wid INDIAN DEFENCE FORUM > KYRGYZSTAN TO US: NO EXTENSION OF MANAS DEAL.
Could become a moot point iff ...
* TOPIX, DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > PAKISTAN WILLING TO RESTORE NATO SUPPLIES.
* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > US, RUSSIA CONFRONTATION OVER PAKISTAN [Pipeline Wars].

#6 Now that they've "beaten" us out of Afghanistan, they will of course turn to closer to home. Like Pakistan, or worse for Russia, Chechnya. Chechnya probably third though, since if the Jihadists get the Pakistan nukes Russia HAS to know they are vunerable.
Honestly I see Russia getting hit before us by a Jihadi nuke.
