The United States has essentially let Pakistans nuclear arsenal grow over the past three decades
Should we have gone to war against them? It would have been a tough sell, especially pre-9/11. I put ellipsis on the last part regarding the secret codes in this excerpt.

There was one author on John Bachelor the other night that claimed the Pakistan nuclear test in the 70s was actually a test for the North Koreans.

Yeah. We've let Iran's and North Korea's nuclear programs grow as well. Why we didn't snap our fingers and stop them I just don't know.
FYI: The Pakistan bomb seems to be of the same design at North Korea. Both fizzled with yields of > 1kt.
Way too expensive when a semi truck loaded with NH3/fuel oil yields about the same.

A few outsiders are worried as well.
Its always been easier to steal a government in Pakistan than to steal a bomb, said one former senior US intelligence official.
We have a winner!
Thus the migration from Iraq to Pakistan by Al Qeda.

Welll, that’s as a direct result of India’s, so the U.S. would have had to have done something about India — which would make it all the harder (to do something about two countries at the same time). That wouldn’t have gone anywhere.
At any rate, what the U.S. better not be doing is criticizing Musharraf for his suspension of the democratic government or else the U.S. is going to find a bunch of al Qaeda people in charge of the nukes over there...
The problem with reading and accepting the facts/truth within the article is that it is on msnbc.msn.com--
Just about anything that comes from the MSM is suspect!
The weather used to be exempt... but with Global Warming becoming the Left's new Holy Gospel, even the daily forecast is tainted by the MSM--

Did anyone see the path for terrorists to get into the USA. It is not rocket science - Cuba -> Mexico -> Short drive up and you are across the border from Tijuana and points beyond that with no checks.
Our leaders will get us killed. Any country that does not secure its borders cannot survive.
