The Afgan war is is about having war to the west of Iran.

'US never told govt don't build Iran pipeline'
Pramit Pal Chaudhuri / Hindustan Times / Apr 17, 2011
The United States government has never told the Indian government directly that it does not want the Iran-Pakistan-India natural gas pipeline to be built. "They have said it isn't a good thing in public," said high level sources. "But never to us directly - possibly because they know the answer they would get."
