        They only supported Al Qaida, remember New York?
        And if i must, how many people has Iran killed and how many did the US kill in Iraq? You are using rhetoric that has no meaning and you know it.

        Pakistan's nukes are a bigger threat than Iran's paper Tigers, if they even have a program..

          The question is, who's going to take over if he does slip up?  Another general?  That's probably worse for the Pakistanis as far as what rights they have under Musharraf will be gutted.  But this may be the most likely.  A duly elected President/Prime Minister?  It's what's been promisted by the good General, and he hasn't delivered yet.  The odds aren't good for this one, but it probably would be best for the Pakistanis.  The Taliban?  Musharraf has made a deal with the devil on this one, and, for one, I don't see the Taliban with nukes as a good thing in any capacity, because they'll be moving at least some of those into Afghanistan.  I'd say this is in the middle as far as likelyhood goes.  And it's the worst possibility for all concerned.

          Trust no organizaton bigger than two, and even those are suspect!

      •  Yeah (0+ / 0-)

        but many people think members of Al Qeada, like Bin Laden have sought refuge in Pakistan. I know the situation is different in Pakistan and that their government is not in control of many areas of the country. But...still...the President of Iran is unpopular, and rather then make him a hero by going after Iran, we should try and work with the more moderate elements of the Iranian government. It's just stupid to alienate the Iranian people even more, and I'm surprised Obama would want to do just that.
