  1. On CSIS U.S. AND IRANIAN STRATEGIC COMPETITION: COMPETITION IN AFGHANISTAN, CENTRAL ASIA, AND PAKISTAN By Erin Fitzgerald and Varun Vir

  2. Haven't the Taliban and Tribes in the far East of Iran been on the wrong end of shoeing a couple of times by Tehran, pre US involvement in Afghan? They're usuful at the moment by irritating the US and Pakistan, but would become liability when the US leaves?
