Op-Ed in the Christian Science Monitor – “America’s way out of dependence on Pakistan: Iran”

The Christian Science Monitor recently asked me for an op-ed on US-Pakistan relations.

“America’s way out of dependence on Pakistan: Iran” argues that America’s very dependence on Pakistan is the key source of regional instability, amounting to US support for a Pakistani military-economic complex that churns out militants and is the world’s worst nuclear proliferator. To change the tide, it ought to enlist the support of an unlikely ally: Iran, whose eastern Chabahar Road can help wean the world off its dependence on Pakistan and reorient Afghanistan’s future.
