Oops: Long War Journal points to an article about the new Pakistani government actually wanting to negotiating their way out of their mess with AlQueda.

LWT

Here is snippet:
"We're ready to talk to all those who give up arms and adopt the path of peace," Yousuf Raza Gilani, the newly appointed Prime Minister of Pakistan who represents the Pakistan People's Party, said after taking office. Gilani indicated he would negotiate with the Taliban and plans on focusing his efforts on infrastructure, humanitarian aid, and legal reforms to defeat terrorism.





Unfortunately this may not bode well if Al-Queda is using their standard tactic of arming up while 'talking'.

Dick Cheney:

Speaking in Oman, a U.S.-allied Arab monarchy and neighbor of Iran's, Cheney told ABC News, "The important thing to keep in mind is the objective that we share with many of our friends in the region, and that is that a nuclear-armed Iran would be very destabilizing for the entire area."

Ok, but what does that mean?


Iran could be destabilizing if it continues to foment Iraqi strife. (giving money and support to Shiite versus the Sunni).

The problem may be that a nuclear tipped Iran can cause even more problems.

The problem can be merely one of what if Iran sells or gives nukes to terrorist organizations. How can the US trace back to Iran?

And hit Iran if they have more nukes?
