Thought this one was important too. This could get interesting when Mushy is eventually gone.

I’m sure we are constantly assessing these scenarios...but it is very wrong to be hearing about it, especially through CNN or the NYT.

I have said on this forum many times, if Musharraf falls, we have to go in to Pakistan (covertly is best) and take out their nukes. The folks his government would fall to are the Taliban-like extremist who would love to get their hands on these weapons. We cannot permit this.

Musharraf needs to start transfering the nukes to US custody.

Three U.S. sources have independently confirmed details of the intelligence review to CNN but would not allow their names to be used

More leaking, probably from the CIA. Maybe the CIA should just issue press credentials to all of its analysts. And the MSM could provide them health benefits and a pension plan, as with their other employees.

Notice the Rhetoric post B. Hussein Oblamas screwed up comments.... Civil war in Pakistan and a coup against Musharaff will be very bad news for us...

Thanks to idiot Obama.

If the matter is so sensitive that the sources can’t give their names, then, wouldn’t it make more sense for them to just shut up? Regardless, I think this type of thing is SOP for every region in the world...and more-so here because of the presence of nukes.

The United States is pressuring Musharraf, who took control in a 1999 coup, not to declare a state of emergency as he faces growing political opposition.

I'd hope he wouldn't pay too much attention to U.S. "pressuring." Obviously, this is a critical and delicate situation with huge stakes for the U.S. as well as Pakistan and the whole region.

But this presumption that the U.S. has "the answer" is not well supported by experience. I'd just about as soon urge Musharraf to use his own best judgment and tell him that we hope we will be able to continue to work with Pakistan, however things play out.

Our heavy-handed "advice," IMO, is not worth a thimble-full of warm spit.

(If we are so freakin' smart, how come we thought we could knock down a statue of Saddam and then sit back and watch democracy flower in Iraq?)

It would not suprise me if the process has already has started( the USA securing the nukes ) considering the unstable situation going on in Paki. Everyday that Mr. Musaraff has is bought TIME.

As bizarre as this might sound, a Dutch lady has her finger on the trigger in Pakistan at the moment
