If you are concerned about Israel, you should be concerned about Iran. If you are concerned about Iran, you should be concerned about Afghanistan. Look at the map.

Note the lengthy border between Afghanistan and Iran.

The US has 9,800 troops on Iran's border, and has in Afghanistan sophisticated military facilities constructed over the past fourteen years (including bases that can accommodate large transport aircraft) . Yesterday, President Obama revealed that these troops will remain in Afghanistan longer than originally planned. This should come as no surprise.

The US has stated that it will not allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. We currently are attempting to prevent this through a negotiated agreement. If that agreement fails and Iran continues to develop a nuclear weapon, the US is well-placed in Afghanistan to use the military option.
Thus, if you care about Israel, you must care about Afghanistan.
