Counter-Proliferation Watch Now, this is

Counter-Proliferation Watch

Now, this is interesting (from the Haaretz ticker):

13:36 IDF intelligence chief: Saudis are asking Pakistan to deploy nuclear warheads on the Arabian peninsula.

Hmmm.

Meanwhile, here's the latest from Iran. Don't believe the hype.

The Iranians are tremendously subtle and will continue to aptly navigate the rocky shoals of supposed IAEA compliance. They might well still have a nuke in short order despite agreeing to cease production of enhanced uranium.

If this European diplomatic troika really believe this is a real breakthrough--then they've been bamboozled.

The deeper question is, really, why can Islamabad have a bomb and not Teheran (as viewed from Iran, of course).

Hezbollah, for one, the West will respond. But that's not persuasive fodder to the gang in Teheran. They view themselves as a much more sophisticated society than Pakistan. They want a nuclear bomb. Badly.

Developing, you might say.
