Not to poo poo your idea but of the 3, Pakistan is the one that is "supposed" to be our friend and all 3 of those countries have nuclear weapons. I was a very strong supporter of our being in Afghanistan but I would be interested to know what the game plan is. What do we need to declare victory. In all likelihood probably our best case scenario is to install a not too horrible dictator that is friendly to the west. Religious fanatics and democracy don't blend very well.
