Pakistan’s Fight

I, again, don’t want to make this a linkfest, but Pakistan has launched an offensive against AQI (or AQPak).

This makes Obama’s decision on Afghanistan much more difficult in one sense, and easier overall. The Biden-led strategy has called for a focus on Pakistan; with Pakistan now committing 30,000 troops to fight AQI, on a porous border with Afghanistan, even a focus on Pakistan necessitates more troops in Afghanistan. Abandoning Pakistan to deal with a suddenly empty Afghanistan does their fight no favors.
