31. Good opp for the US to wipe out NK,->
and for China to wipe out Taiwan. Let the mayhem begin and show to all how Muslims destroy the world.
32. Saad they went to Pakistan for terror training& brainwashing
PETER SM ,   AUSTRALIA   (02.06.12)
Some have also been to Afghanistan to fight and kill British soldiers. Some British! Have you ever wondered why successive generations of immigrants from all over the world have successfully integrated but your brothers are " victims"? Do you offer a fraction if the tolerance to infidels that your brothers get in Britain? No they are anything but British. Just once try looking in the mirror, instead of blaming everybody and everything except yourselves
33. Pakistan has joined in.....
Robert ,   Farmington,wv   (02.06.12)
Yep I love these sanctions , They are really working , now Israel has two crazy countries to worry about and one of them has the nukes.once again Israel needs to put there trust in god , instead of these so called friendly nations of Israel.
34. So... Europe's future now depends on... Israel?
Let's see... With the support Muslim-dominated EU has been giving Israel lately, and with the it becoming more and more Muslim with each passing day, I don't think anybody should care what EU thinks or does. They will vote against Israel and the UN, boycott Israeli products and disseminate more blood libels anyway, let them taste some reality check on how good is to be in the Muslim's side. Let some EU Spring wake up and rattle and roll the EU politicians into the future EU Muslim Nuclear Winter. After all, Germany and France have been among the builders of the Iranian Nuclear program.
35. Israeli speculation at best.
Gemme ,   Canada   (02.06.12)
What's the interest of Pakistan in supporting Iran who are Shiites and would more likely be a threat to Pakistan than a friend? What do you expect from a journalist whose name rhymes with doodoo?
36. THIS IS UNSUBSTANIATED BS... there is no evidence
Rafi ,   US   (02.06.12)
any Pakistani authority said anything at all on the subject... Pure stirring of the pot.
37. I have a great idea
Sagi   (02.06.12)
Let's have some fun, push all the buttons at the same time and obliterate each other. That way we can have a clean sheet and start all over again. Maybe the second time around we can do it without gods and religion.
38. 35% of the population is Shia's in Pakistan .
Syed Sajjad Ali ,   karachi Pakistan   (02.06.12)
i am not sure about the miltary leadership but We Shia's in Pakistan are ready to sacrifice our self for Islamic Republic of Iran.
39. The post at No. 8 is not mine
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.06.12)
Pakistan doesn't have delivery capability (any fool knows that). Israel, on the other hand, does. Bye bye, Islamabad and Karachi, should Pakistan decide to get really, REALLY stupid. Tempting anyway, isn't it?
40. To: Robert at No. 33
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.06.12)
I appreciate your sentiment, but I do wish to point out to you that while Pakistan has nuclear weapons, it lacks delivery capability. That is a much, much smaller nuclear club -- of which Israel is a member in good standing. As is India. Pakistan involves itself in that which does not concern it very much to its peril.
41. To: No. 35
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.06.12)
Dudi is a nickname for David. A great King of Israel. Got anything else to contribute? Possibly something worth reading?
42. Syed hopefully the other 65% have got more brains & care
PETER SM ,   AUSTRALIA   (02.06.12)
about the future of Pakistan How many terror attacks can you continue to export around the world before the world gets sick of you? When are you going to export something useful that the world actually wants
43. Nr 39. Yes so I thought - but was to lazy to comment.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (02.06.12)
44. Typical of the Paki's
Talula ,   Israel   (02.06.12)
Why are they interfering? They should be keeping a low profile now especially after they were harboring the world's most wanted criminal - while taking billions from the USA.
45. deja vu
michel ,   Ashkelon   (02.06.12)
They are the same who speaks : Munich in the 1938
46. @#14 - A necessary reality check - 2
Ya'akov ,   Be'er Sheva   (02.06.12)
The collective American attitude (popular and governmental) is lethal not only for other nations, but for America herself; after all, the popular American false pride and deep blindness, united to the enormous evil accumulated in her halls of power, is what has lead to her current great and un-recovering fall – something which I sincerely lament.
47. Good ! So we can take out these madmen too !
who cares   (02.06.12)
That would be a great opportunity to take out two terror states with one hit ! India would appreciate it surely to get rid of these madmen from Islamabad.
48. It's a win-win situation
Yerushalmi ,   Jerusalem   (02.06.12)
Collapse of EU economy will enable us to cheaply buy back all the properties Europeans stole from us. Few months ago also warned that they will hit Turkey if Israel hits Iran. This deal is getting better by the hour.
49. There will be no war.
heard it all before.   (02.06.12)
israel can't go it alone. After a few token bombs , Israel will need allies. If it hasn't made the before first strike, it certainly will not get the after. It's time little Israel stops pretending to be a superpower . Without the West it is nothing.
50. And If Israel Collapses The World Economy
Dan ,   Calgary   (02.06.12)
The world will do as it has to to protect itself too. Don't forget. This will start because of an Israeli attack, not an Iranian one. Do you not see the price of your madness? Are you really willing to pay it, not only in Israel, but the world over? Will you be responsible for finishing Hitler's work?
51. To: No. 50
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.06.12)
First of all, the world has done a fine job of collapsing its economy without any assistance from Israel. Secondly, an Israeli attack upon Iran will be conducted in order to preserve Israeli interests. The world's interests do not matter much in the face of existential threats to Israel -- which have been a daily occurrence since 1979. Thirdly, an attack upon Iran -- and, inevitably, its destruction -- will stabilize oil prices, and will give the world's economy a chance to get out from under. Lastly -- stop talking about Final Solutions. We do not take well to such nasty utterances, and the words "NEVER AGAIN" actually mean something to us. Can you grasp the price of your lunacy?
52. To: No. 49
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.06.12)
Oh, Israel can go it alone. Very much so, in fact. Anyone else will just get in our way. Little Israel has the largest nuclear arsenal in the world, and the stones to use it. Keep that in mind. The rest of the world may have totally kowtowed to Islamic and Arab tyranny, but Israel has not. Without Israel, the West is nothing.
53. @52
sipahi ,   Istanbul   (02.06.12)
Without assistance and permission from the US, Israel cannot go one meter forward from her border.
54. Sarah B
Counter Punch ,   Australia   (02.06.12)
The truth is America didn't have one enemy in the Middle East before Israel existed, Israel is a welfare state for the US and basically an American military base with shopping malls. The world would be safer if Israel was relocated elsewhere.
55. They don't care a hoot about Israel.
Sami ,   New York, USA   (02.06.12)
They don't care a hoot about Israel.
56. To: No. 54
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.06.12)
I suspect that the Aborigines in Australia would highly prefer it if Australia were relocated elsewhere. You did, after all, murder tens of millions of them. But -- you see -- Israel belongs exactly where it is. We have the written history and the archeological history to prove it. Too bad you cannot say the same for Canberra, eh, mate? You are the descendants of British criminal convicts. Don't ever forget that. Perhaps we should restore Australia to its rightful owners, and send everyone else somewhere else.
57. Too bad for Pakistan that Israel has nukes in their
Rivkah   (02.06.12)
major cities that can be detonated by a cellphone call.
58. Sipahi
David Israel ,   New York, USA   (02.06.12)
Israel is not run by AKP who takes orders from the USA and a certain someone in Philadelphia.
59. Disagree with the diplomat
Nice bloke ,   Rochdale, UK   (02.06.12)
I don't find this theory credible at all. For one I don't see it in Pakistan's interest to have another nuclear armed neighbour - one that it doesn't particularly see eye to eye. Secondly by what military mean could they possibly retaliate.? Lastly, it would only further cement the growing strategic partnership between Israel and India.
60. #52
Jonathan ,   MN/US   (02.06.12)
Your thinking of Russia.
