I'll start this here as it would only be moved from WoT
Can anyone tell me why on earth Iran is target number 1 and Pakistan is left alone to propogate nuclear proliferation.
Ok so Pak has a nuke cpability and Iran doesn't (yet).
Iran's prime minister was elected; Musharraf ('The General', the one Shrub couldn't name) seized power in a military coup and has never let go.
Iran may possibly be supporting insurgent elements in Iraq, Pakistan has a long record of support for Al Quida - many western 'Al Quida' bombers etc
have attended islamic schools in Pakistan.
I'm not saying one country is any better (or worse) than the other but the US's attitude is completely different: one is a 'valued ally' (for what
not supporting AQ even more or selling more nuke tech to anyone and everyone?) the other is on a 'final warning'.
It's very, very puzzling - anyone care to enlighten me?
