On Afghanistan: Was Dr. Swamy right?
BJP MP Dr. Subramanian Swamy was asking the Indian government to send troops to Afghanistan, take weapons from the US, and finish the Taliban and ISIS. This would’ve protected India’s interest in Afghan, provided a boost and security to India’s plans to develop the port in Iran, which would’ve put Pakistan in a very tight spot.
What was Dr. Swamy’s tweet back in 2009?
Time has come to meet our future enemies on the frontier. Hence India should send 100000 troops to Afghanistan and thus also be next doo …

Indian government ignored his words.
So, what happened now???
Pakistan bankrolled Taliban.
Pakistan trained Taliban terrorists.
Taliban fought against the Afghan government. Covert Game by the Taliban and Pakistan ensured America moving away from Afghanistan.
Thus with all the weapons, Americans left behind, Taliban-controlled Afghanistan became the 4th largest military power in the world.
Now Pakistan has – Pakistan army+Taliban’s army (4th largest)
Trained terrorists in the form of Taliban, ISIS-K, al-Qaida.
Most importantly, American weapons.
