Pakistan seems to be getting completely out of control.  Those who keep pushing for suspending Iran's nuclear program seem to have forgotten that Pakistan is the country that has all of the following in it:

1) Actual, bona fide, and tested nuclear bombs

2) Osama Bin-Ladan

3) Some of the meanest, ugliest Moslem fundamentalist groups in the world.

The more and more aggressive and violent they get at America, the more Iran dodges bombs and bullets. No war on Iran. Taleban is in Pakistan now? Hmmm sounds like a gift from God to protect Iran from a war. 

Also, I hope it means that Iranians can take this opportunity to weaken the regime? I won't hold my breath. Life is still too good for some people there I guess? Or maybe they just want peace, despite the regime. I can understand that.
