Moronic assessment. The Saudis pay for the nukes, missiles AND Paki operators, who know how to nuke, say, Tel Aviv.
It's what is begotten when the US mollycoddles Pakistan. They should have been annihilated by India back in the 70s, but instead, the US chose to save them. Too bad for Israel. No wonder they are running to India.
But in those days to support India over Pakistan was to support the intentions of the USSR. In those days conservatives tended to lean to Pakistan, leftists toward India. This Cold War strategy illustrates the dangers of a correct short-term strategy causing long-term perils. Now that the Cold War is over, this tale provides a good argument for a more detached, less interventionist foreign policy oriented to long term survival over short term expediencies.

In 1971, Pakistan had committed genocide against it's own citizen (the Bengalis) and India stepped in to help the Bengalis get their independence as Bangladesh
india could have gone into west pakistan and cut off Baluchistan and the NWFP.
Right. What do I know? I lived in the KSA for five years. Nothing WILL go wrong. Nothing moronic about what I said...just your assessment of my statement.
