Barring a solid and lasting peace settlement between Israel and its Arab neighbors, the countries of the Middle East are far from nuclear disarmament. If anything, nuclear proliferation is only likely to increase as states like Saudi Arabia find that they, too, need to defend themselves against a nuclear-armed Iran. Recent reports have indicated that Saudi Arabia is looking to lease Pakistan’s nukes. The arms race of the Cold War may be dead, but the race for hot weapons has never been so alive."

and THAT is exactly why the Bush Doctrine has become the bedrock of FP....I can tell you with confidence that the nuclear showdown between Pakistan and India a couple of years ago was even closer to launch than the cuban missile crisis. How anyone can even begin to consider a group of hot head fundamentalist mullahs bent on the destruction of infidel nations becoming a nuclear power is dreaming in technicolor. MAD worked during the cold war because rational leadership was in control. MAD won't work in the moslem world and should the mullahs in Pakistan ever get control of that nuclear arsenal, god help us all....
