1. We can handle it by implementing marshall law after a nuke is detonated on U.S. soil, and increasing a thousand fold Bush's "mandate" to deal with terror his way.
the Pakistani military, just the other day, is believed to have provided cover shelling allowing militants to make their way into India.

But then again, Even If Paki Extremists did get their hands on the Nukes, India would have an immediate threat greater than the US.
Unless ofcourse they decide to sell them to their Buddies across the Border.

If the same thing happened in Pakistan the results would be disastrous and in any case, religious extremists or not the next government would not be pro US if the US was supportive of the dictatorship that once ruled their country.

Also, I'd think that, while the US is seen as a problem for fundamental islam, Hindus are the ancient paganistic enemy, so india might very well be a more 'sensible' target from their persepective. better to detonate a nuke in bombay and new dehli than try to smuggle one into the US perhaps.
