    Which is why China helped Pakistan acquire nuclear weapons back in the 1990’s, assuming Pakistan actually has nuclear weapons). China would have been smarter to cooperate with Pakistan to make it look like they had them. Come to think of it, the same could be said of the United States.

    India would have certainly gone along with such a deception. Israel, too — which would explain why Israel seems not to be worried. Contrast that to Iran.

    Why is this important? Because if Pakistan is not really a nuclear power the United States does not have a strategic interest in maintaining a political presence in that country.

    Maybe it’s time for Pakistan to show the world again, this time more convincingly than the first time around.

    “that Pakistan is an unreliable and even treacherous ally”

    What?! Surely not! This must be a result of the nefarious influence of the Indian lobby in Beijing.
