If you're not pleased with the quality or value of our current selection of wars, you're about to get a treat: Some very smart people believe Pakistan may be next to fall.
With the Taliban conquering the countryside at an alarming pace -- while seeing little resistance from Pakistani forces -- this could be the next stop on America's Various Wars with Nutjobs Tour. And this time we'll be playing for slightly higher stakes. Iraq may have housed a sociopath dictator, and Afghanistan gave refuge to the al-Qaeda, but Pakistan has nuclear weapons
That's right: Our next round of hostilities could be with kooks with nuclear weapons
. As counter-terrorism expert David Kilcullen recently told an Australian paper,
"Afghanistan doesn't worry me.
Pakistan does. We have to face the fact that if Pakistan collapses it
will dwarf anything we have seen so far in whatever we're calling the
war on terror now."
