Stuck On Stupid In Pakistan

The Pakistani General who helped give the Mullahs their nuke program now recommends they attack Israel. He should read the Jerusalem Post.

Here's the horse's mouth (my ellipsis):

(Retired Pakistani General) Beg described an Iranian visit (to Pakistan) in 1990, when he was army chief of staff."They didn't want the technology. They asked: 'Can we have a bomb?'

My answer was: "By all means you can have it but you must make it yourself. Nobody gave it to us."

Actually the Chinese gave the Pakistanis the bomb technology, having stolen it from the US. And here's how they passed it to the Mullahs:

A.Q. Khan, who pioneered Pakistan's nuclear bomb, sold nuclear technology to Iran, Libya and North Korea...

In a televised confession Khan insisted he acted without authorization in selling nuclear technology to Iran, Libya and North Korea, saying the proliferation took place between 1989 and 2000.

Khan has been pardoned by President Gen. Pervez Musharraf, and Pakistan has refused to hand him over to the United States or the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency for questioning.

Now this Pakistani pusher is providing strategic advice to his client:
:(The retired Pakistani General) said he suggested that (the Mullahs) "make it clear that if anything happens to Iran, if anyone attacks it — it doesn't matter who it is or how it is attacked — that Iran's answer will be to hit Israel; the only target will be Israel."
Hmm. Here's what Israelis do to folks who kill them:

...special forces operating in the Jenin area on Sunday shot dead seven Palestinians - among them Israel's most-wanted terrorist, believed to have been behind all the Islamic Jihad suicide attacks during the past year, including the latest bombing in Tel Aviv.

Among the dead in Kabatiya were...an Aksa Martyrs Brigades operative wanted by Israel, and his brother...who Palestinians said was not known to be a terror suspect. Later, armored bulldozers were brought in to demolish the house. Troops later shot dead another Palestinian...who was throwing rocks at the soldiers during the operation.

The deceased killed perhaps 50 Israelis. Iran will use its nukes to kill hundreds of thousands of Israelis.Then the Israelis - having glassed over Iran - will kill the Pakistanis who lit the fire and demolish their real-estate. Either by a Munich-style operation, or by giving the Indians a helping hand.

So the prospects for Messrs Kahn and Beg enjoying peaceful retirements are not good.
