You're still mired in Cold War thinking--in terms of massed armies and MIRV'd missles. As you occasionally and accurately remind us, Pakistan is a dictatorship and is only friendly to the USA as long as the dictator stays in power. If he goes, then the Pak arsenal is up for grabs.
Dare we fantasize that an Islamobomb could end-up in the hands of a fanatical Islamic group and make it's way to say, oh pick a city, Houston? But that's only one nuke and one city so why worry?
