“ . . if the US invaded Iran is it possible for Iranians to infiltrate Pakistan and help the radicals in that country overthrow Musharraf’s government? [Edited by Don W]
“ . . If so then what? You can guarantee if the US invades or attacks Iran, Iran will send troops into Iraq . . “

Iran will not roll over like Hussein did. Iran surely has a plan for a US invasion. I bet it involves biological attacks on Israel and our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. [Edited by Don W]
“ . . If this war happens the US has to hit fast and hard or it will get real ugly. If we give them 18-24 months of diplomatic sanctions we would be better off to not attack at all.
“ . . correct. Pakistan with Nukes is the most dangerous nuclear situation, even more so than North Korea and China.
Militants fighting the Pakistani army in the Waziristan tribal region on Saturday distributed leaflets in the name of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, calling for the assassination of President Pervez Musharraf.
"I also pray to the one and the only Almighty Allah to teach a telling lesson to Bush, Musharraf and their forces, and give a chance to the lions of Islam to kill the slave of Bush in Pakistan," read the leaflet.
Musharraf, has survived several al Qaeda assassination attempts by Pakistani jihadi groups since siding with U.S. President George W. Bush in a global war on terrorism following the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States.
And bin Laden's Egyptian deputy Ayman al-Zawahri, who is believed to be moving between the Pashtun tribal lands on either side of the Pakistan-Afghan border, last month issued a videotape again calling for Pakistanis to overthrow Musharraf.

MI6, Britain's secret intelligence service, has identified six Pakistani scientists working in Iran's nuclear bomb program who have been "advising al-Qaida on how to weaponize fissionable materials it has now obtained."
MI6 and the International Atomic Energy Agency believe the scientists have played a major role in enabling Iran to be "well advanced in providing uranium enriched materials for nuclear bombs," said Alexander Cirilovic, a nuclear terrorism expert in Paris.
Both high-level MI6 and CIA sources have confirmed the scientists would only have been allowed to assist al-Qaida with the authority of Iran's unpredictable President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

As for our so-called concern over Pakistan having nukes. We have none. It is only more prop-crap. Only the Pakistani maverick nuclear scientist is said to have furnished bomb making tech info to NK and anyone willing to pay his price. What did we do? Nothing. If we are worried why not pull a Mr Bull of super gun fame, on hm? We really don’t care about nuclear proliferation as long as it is one of “our” guys who proliferate. Israel is said to have 50 to 300 A bombs. Where did they get the critical ingredients? I’d say from the good ole US of A.

That's not the article from WND. Seeker quoted two articles, one from Reuters concerning what you just quoted from the Globe and the one from WND concerned this:
'MI6, Britain's secret intelligence service, has identified six Pakistani scientists working in Iran's nuclear bomb program who have been "advising al-Qaida on how to weaponize fissionable materials it has now obtained."'
I don't have a problem with non-mainstream sources as long they don't involve people with OBVIOUS agendas.
Originally posted by SeekerofSo, accordingly, this WND article asserting what MI6 has determined is any saying anything new here or simply confirming such? But, hey, you keep playing that source game without checking with your favorite search engine forst, k?

Musharaf is the best Pakistan can have at the moment..
If he goes, and a non-democratic islamist govt. comes to power.. then you can say bye bye to Pakistan..
India's not going to wait for some nutcase to chuck a few WMDs here and there..
So for Pakistan's sake Musharraf should not secede to a coup or a radical govt..
