#1 It looks more like a logisics nightmare. The route through Pak is sure shorter than the rest of the overland routes.

#2 I wonder why the truck route bypasses Turmenistan? They have a rail line from the Caspian to the Afghan border. Put the trailers on flatbeds and save time and money.

#3 It is more than four times as expensive, and also more air intensive. It's not good enough for my comfort.

Will see.

#4 It is more than four times as expensive

It also takes money out of Pakistani hands. Money they use to feed, raise and train jihadis. Better they spend all their time scraping a living from bare mountainsides than receiving free money from Uncle Sam.

#5 Would you have wanted to put anything under Türkmenbaşy's control?

#6 That map needs to be reproduced every time there is a discussion about what to do in Afghanistan.

#9 Draw a line from Spin Boldak due East to the Indian/Pakistan border. Declare everything South of that to be Afghanistan. Deport the Pakis.

Profit!

#10 A large number of PAK MIL BLOGGERS/NETTERS appear to be happy of the change, + support any effort by Islamabad to close down the US Drone staging bases, stop post-Abbottabad bilateral cooperat, + just get the US out of the country.
