Well, that's it. Pakistan has decided to cut off NATO's supply lines to Afghanistan. This
staunch lukewarm traitorous ally took the extreme measure in retaliation for NATO firing on Pakistan's soldiers, no doubt carried out because the Pakistanis (again) were taking potshots at US troops in support of their real allies: the Taliban.
Barring a fast 180-degree reversal by Pakistan, the Afghan war in defense of a fragile new democracy against jihadist maniacs is pretty much done. NATO forces will very quickly run low on the fuel, food and ammunition that powers their modern advanced military. The Afghanistan war could be over a lot sooner than anyone, even the Pakistanis, realize.
A few weeks ago, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said that in any war between the USA and Pakistan, Afghanistan would naturally take the side of their next-door neighbor. We may also soon see if he's so blind to the suicidal consequences of such as stance.
One suspects that the Taliban have temporarily relaxed their absolute prohibition on the consumption of alcohol to break out the bottles of champagne.
