Iran hosts trilateral summit with Afghanistan, Pakistan

On Sunday in Tehran, Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai, Iran’s President¬†Mahmoud¬†Ahmadinejad and Pakistan’s President Asif Ali Zardari met for a summit to discuss their nations’ potential cooperation on a wide range of issues.

The three share common borders and a long list of common problems, from drug trafficking to militant insurgencies.

Marvin Weinbaum, a scholar in residence at the Middle East Institute and a former State Department analyst specializing on Afghanistan and Pakistan, joins Martin Savidge to discuss Iran’s economic interests and what role the country could play in helping the governments of Pakistan and Afghanistan fight the Taliban.

Now i suppose that these three have something important to discuss, however, the only tangible thing that would come out of it is a nice photo-op

Good things come in “3s”. The three bears, the three stooges, and of course these three guys. We need to counter with a summit with Powell, Cheney and Limbaugh. Seriously, these guys are wrapped up in dogma tighter that a clump of rice rolled up in a grape leave. The only sanity here is with Goldie Locks and Colin Powell.
