RE: 'Israel may act first' -- Cheney
Iran and Pakistan have been exchanging nuclear and missle technology. I don't know how much friendlier you can get. Pakistan, Iran and North Korea have a de facto alliance, and they work together as a team to share technology so they can all get ICBM capabilities to protect themselves from us. Iran quit interfering in Pakistan internal affairs a long time ago in recognition of its need to enter into this arrangement.
I think Bot way over-estimates Pakistan's friendship with the US -its all for show, the real truth is the average Pakistani and his mullahs hate our guts, and Mussariff of Pakistan is living on borrowed time until that faction, the majority in Pakistan, take over. To survive, he kisses their asses while playing nice with us - end result, no Bin Laden. Bin Laden is becoming the bridge between radical Shiism and Radical Sunnism. In his last TV appearance, he was dressed in the garb of a high Shiite mullah, something the CIA took public note of, increasing speculation that Bin Laden is actually in Iran, not surprising given that Iran was directly implicated in 911. It has always been my suspicion that Iran was the one ultimately behind Al Queda and 911. It's worked out great for them - they got rid of their arch-enemy Saddam and bottled us up in NamRaq, tying us down long enough to finish their little nuke project. Any idiot who could read the PNAC docs would know that is exactly what Bush would do in response to 911, and I think the radical faction that really controls Iran figured this out. Thanks to these transparent PNAC ideologues, we invaded the wrong friggin country.
Meanwhile, Bin Laden is now posturing himself to be just the man to be the catalyst for a joint Shiite/Sunni Islamic Republic in Pakistan. Now the situation is reversed - the American armies in Pakistan and Iraq will be in nuclear missle range of Iran and Pakistan, and immune from invasion.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
