LOL good question makes me want to grab my camcorder and interview people passing buy and see how they do with regards to the question . I am willing to bet that most of the general public wouldn't be able to .
However here in ATS land I would say that 98% of us could most likely find Iran on a map with little difficulty at all .
But Caspian oil, landlocked between Russia, Iran and former Soviet republics, presents formidable transport challenges. Afghanistan is strategically located near the Caspian Sea. In 1994, the U.S. State Department and Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence agency sought to install a stable regime in Afghanistan to enhance the prospects for Western oil pipelines. They financed, armed and trained the Taliban in its civil war against the Northern Alliance.
