To be honest, I'm more concerned with how a nuclear Iran destabilizes the wealthy, stable Arab world (i.e. Saudi Arabia). If Iran gets a nuke, you get a nuclear arms race in the Gulf with a whole bunch of people I don't trust so much (even the Saudis don't trust their nonsense government). Even so, Pakistan is the scariest non-government that has the capability to end the world (and that includes the crazy Kims fifty miles away from where I currently sit).

Regardless, thanks for the shout outs.

P.S. I'm pretty sure my only opinion on beer was that Korean beer is godawful and I'd like y'all to send me something better (a recent shipment of a Sam Adams holiday pack made me and my buddies happy for about an hour).

Exactly my points, a nuclear Iran has the ability to destabilize the entire region, even Israel, to an extent. Regardless, with the Muslim Brotherhood winning elections in Egypt this year, while influencing the entire Middle East, including Pakistan, we could see Islamic Extremists in charge of Pakistani nuclear weapons soon, which is a VERY scary thought.

As far as beer, I thought you had mentioned something other than the Korean "beer." My personal favorite is the seasonal Holiday Porter or Old Fezziwig Ale, while the Winter Lager is also excellent in the Sam Holiday pack.

I prefer Islamic extremists in charge of Pakistani nukes over no one in charge of Pakistani nukes, which is more the direction I fear things are heading in.

I kinda see them as the same things. I fear that radicals will allow Pakistani nukes to "fall" into the hands of terrorists by either selling or supplying them to groups they favor. This of course would be done without any link to Pakistan to avoid the wrath of the West, most likely through the ISI. Also, I think we need to significantly decrease our aid to Pakistan as reports are stating many weapons and advanced technology are finding their way into the hands of terrorists. An unstable Pakistan is more threatening than North Korean or even Iran, as at least those countries have been relatively stable despite some chest thumping in the past, particularly Iran in recent years. However, Pakistan in either civil war, which is a possibility, or in the hands of radicals where they use or weapons to kill our troops is the worst possible outcome of potentially harmful situations, IMO.
