Land of the Pure - (blinging the fastest sprouting new clear arsenal on the planet) whose nation/state motto, as best understood, is something like "Hey y'all! Watch this!" may have outlived her usefulness to Great Satan - or any of the League of Hot! Democrazies for that matter.
After all - how secure are Land of the Pure's new clear weaponry? Are they truly disassembled and held in separate locales? How many terrorist sympathizers guard them; are privy to their assembly and alert protocols?
Blitzing past Great Britain as a new clear power hooked up with the recent al Qaeda/Talibanish attack on a PAK Navy Base that wiped out Pakistan's anti submarine capability in 20 minutes is scary indeed.
"The attacks audacity, the foreknowledge it implied, the militaristic precision with which it was executed -- carried a message: Pakistan is no longer a contested territory; it is now emphatically their turf. The reins of official power may not be in their hands yet, but the men with whom they rest dare not challenge the extremists' conception of Pakistan. The battle for hearts and minds is over. Moderate Pakistan, if such a thing ever existed, is dead."
As the most risible fakebelieve 'nation/state' concocted since Great Britain gave up empire to focus on upgrading Rock n Roll to Rock to Metal, Land of the Pure's history has essentially been one self inflicted heartache after another ('cept of course natural disasters that seem to periodically strike a country that is half and half floodplains and mountain tops).
It's time to dismantle Pakistan as we know it - The Land of the Pure would verifiably give up all her new clear bootilicious booty and the industrial base that sustains it (talking to you - Wah Cantonment).
In exchange, Great Satan other Western cats would agree to tease it with a $100 billion economic package, administered by an independent authority and disbursed over 10 years, on condition that Pakistan remain a democratic and secular state (no military rulers; no Sharia law).
Great Satan could recoup cash and bling bling wasted on Land of the Pure by selling all the warheads to Little Satan, Nippon and SoKo - at a slight mark up (after all, we are not communists) and as ebberdobby knows - new clear democrazies are wonderfully crunk with nation state to nation state stability.
If incentives fail to move the generals in Rawalpindi, then Washington must be prepared to threaten Pakistan with isolation through U.N. mechanisms, including travel bans on its military leaders. Finally, Pakistan must be made to understand the cost of nuclear warfare. If a single nuclear warhead falls into the wrong hands -- or is pressed into service by the right hands -- there will be no Pakistan. Only denuclearization can now save Pakistan from itself -- and the world from Pakistan.
