I'd bet on a piece of paper from the UN(-worthy) with angry words on it, but not on the UN actually DOING anything.

Who is to say that nuclear material is not already being diverted?

Pakistan has always had an issue with Swat from the time of the Raj. I've been reading a lot on how the UK dealt with that area.

Swat is to Afghanistan as Laos was to South Vietnam.

As far as the Taliban goes, it has always been a Pakistan-based organization.

Does this mean Pakistan is full of conservative Christians that own guns and are military veterans?

Yeah, and free nightlights... It will solve the parking problem in Karachi permanently, though. ;)

What scares me, it is that the Taliban would give the nukes to North Korea; to use as patterns to mass reproduce H-bombs. The world can ill afford atomic Wal-marts.

Pakistan should nuke the Taliban positions in the SWAT valley.

On fox they reported that the US is requesting location of nuke sites, in case they need to be destroyed. Shouldn't we already know that?

I doubt our intelligence agencies know where they are supposed to report to work at, much less know where another nation stores its nukes.:dope:

I think we need to remember to use the correct words regardless of what the "current despot" chooses to use. The term "extremist" is being bandied about as an anti-word to describe anyone who disagrees with the status-quo. The opposite of extremist is conformist. Since I doubt many here see themselves as "conformists", we are automatically - "extremists".

The real problem in Pakistan and the rest of the world for that matter is Islamic Terrorism, so let's call a spade a f*****g shovel shall we?

No mater what Oboma calls the war on terror, it is what it is. A more accurate term might be "terrorist's war on us".

Most of us here don't fear much, but when we do fear something, we don't "bow" to it, we prepair to kill it.

There have always been terrs in Pak., but by using the northern alliance in Tora Bora, we allowed the head of the snake to retreat, and grow stronger. If our govt had not worried about pissing off Pak. then, and let our professional military do their job, it might not be such a mess now.
