Hmm, that'd definitly be a region to make sure that everyone is 'on board' if there is open action in the middle east. Can't have pakistan being
left in the dark if there's going ot be an invasion of iran.
For a while now some people in that part of the world have been calling for the formation of 'pashtunistan', for the regions of other countries
inhabited by Pashtuns to break away and form their own country.
Ethnicities in Pakistan and surrounding areas
Though this doesn't concern Iran specifically. But perhaps it will be worked out that Pakistan gets control of parts of Iran in exchange for taking
it easy on kashmir, or at least that something like that is being floated.
THen again, can't see why Bush would personally be required to have talks about that.
At the very least though action in Iran could precipiate a greater islamic revolt, and people like musharraf, it'd be important to make sure that
they are strong enough to withstand such an uprising. Obviously India would have to be prepared, if onyl to not react if musharraf seems like he is
loosing out and radicals might get pak-nukes.
