Gas from Iran
The Dawn reports that India may opt out of the Iran-Pakistan-India gas pipe line and instead opt for Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India as the prefered route. Clearly this is the 'quid-pro-quo' that is being spoken about by the US polititians. Appears that the great game and coercive energy politics is the way to go. I dont see the sense it makes from the Indian perspective, given the potential for nuclear generation.
