[Northern Alliance perennial troublemaker and perennial candidate for president, Abdullah Abdullah, is firing (one of) the first shot(s) in the next presidential campaign, which may turn into a war between India and Pakistan, fought from Afghanistan to India. To be fair to Pres. Ghani, Abdullah declared war upon his previous “partner in govt,” Hamid Karzai (SEE: Karzai rival Abdullah to quit Afghan run-off , 31 October 2009). Another explosion in govt, at this time, will likely guarantee success to the Afghan Taliban, in their ongoing summer offensive.
And exactly how would that benefit India?]
Afghanistan’s chief executive has castigated his ally Ashraf Ghani as “unfit for the presidency”, in a public outburst highlighting bitter internal divisions that threaten their US-brokered power sharing agreement.
