Indian officials seem to be getting all excited about the Iranian Gas Pipeline all over again. I had seriously thought that they would have given up this silly exercise because of the lack of Indian participation in the trilateral committee meetings between India, Pakistan and Iran but this report seems to say that they are again getting all excited about it.
Here's my previous essay on this topic dating back to January 16, 2004, and nothing has changed since then. The sheer messy geopolitics of Pakistan itself should warn you off on the fact that you do not want your energy supplies in the hands of countries which are basically incapable of managing itself. It is having a full fledged civil war in 2 provinces, terrorist bombings galore and a rabid form of Islamism rampant in there. Furthermore, that country is supporting terrorists within India. Just what kind of stupidity is this?
