this is a brilliant map.
Click on the map to get a higher resolution image. Shows where the action is happening and why Pakistan is so crucial. I was reminded of the term “strategic depth” by the Pakistani’s. Now there is a very good reason why the Pakistani’s wanted strategic depth, so that they can withdraw when / if India attacked. But nobody saw it from the other perspective, if a threat appears from Afghanistan, then where does Pakistan go? They cant go into India now, can they? and China isn't willing to deal with Islamic terrorists, they already have their own home grown boys. Not a good map to review.
