This article has been making the rounds…..
Does Pakistan’s Taliban Surge Raise a Nuclear Threat?

I haven’t had time to read it yet.

From that article:

‘As America’s top military officer, Mullen has traveled regularly to Pakistan — twice in just the past two weeks — for talks with his Pakistani counterpart, General Ashfaq Kayani, and others.’
(My emphasis)

Firstly - that is not exacly confidence-inducing, is it …

But, secondly - thats the same top military officer who strangely (NOT!) had no time to see the Cheif of the IDF, Gen Gabi Ashkenazi, when he visited Washington a few weeks ago.
