US Policy Missteps Promote Pakistan's Nuclear Peril

All the evidence of the past 60 years of US Cold War manipulation/exploitation of a Partition-weakened (in 1947) Pakistan, under the guise of a US-invented Cold War, points to the fact that the US has instigated and abetted Pakistan's nuclear peril.

The US is solely responsible for placing the world's largest democracy, Pakistan's neighbor, at grave risk. However, that democracy has just held an unprecedented election and will successfully continue to thwart US military adventurism in the South Asia region.

To Commenter #22 : Which madrassah were you miseducated in? You unfortunately are a example of a US pawn and the propaganda of your feudal elites combined with Saudi (US petrodollar ally) wahabbism are so successful you are not even aware of Pakistan's servile status vis a vis the US. Fortunately I have wonderful Pakistani friends who have a more thorough grasp of the facts.
