As Expected…Yeh Toh Hona Hi Thaa

What I had been harping about tirelessly since 2007 (and I was the only one to do so openly) has now indeed happened: Afghanistan has formally notified Pakistan in writing that Kabul’s contention is that the Durand Line Agreement—signed by the erstwhile governments of Afghanistan and Imperial British India to demarcate their respective territories—was valid only for 100 years and the land that had been made part of the British holdings should return to the Afghans. 

The emergence of this latest faultline is what Pakistan has always feared most ever since August 14, 1947. Needless to say, Kabul’s latest claim has enormous repercussions with regard to not only the future status of Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), but also the other provinces of Balochistan and Gilgit-Baltistan, as the next six months ahead will reveal. 

Meanwhile, posted below are some new artworks regarding the JF-17 Thunder MRCA, though the data concerning the H-4 PGM is visually erroneous.
