    There were two shows last night about Bhutto and on the war in Afghanistan on public television. The one on the Bhutto family: america broke off relations with Pakistan when Ali B. developed the bomb because India had one; later when the Islamists took over Pakistan, there was a Dr. Khan who was used by Pakistan to spread nuclear knowledge to N. Korea, Iran and Syria. Was it due to B. Bhutto or the Islamists in the ISI or both that the nuclear knowledge was spread (confusing); although B. Bhutto said Pakistan would never use it, would the Islamists??? or even a terror attack could be nuclear?? In the end, the show seemed to imply that B.Bhutto thought only about Pakistan and its war with India (and over Kashmir) and not much about the consequences to america if the terrorists got us. Most americans want us to clean up the Taliban and stay in Afghanistan? We should have stayed in Afghanistan for nation building after the soviets left?? Bhutto also wanted the muslim bloc, including Afghanistan, Turkmenistan; how much would Pakistan cooperate with us; friend or foe??? I think it is more than iran; it is the whole muslim bloc. B. Bhutto's mother was a Kurd from Iran, I think, which is interesting. How do the Kurds see themselves???? EKurd.net doesn't seem to trust Iran with nukes. I guess being the victims of chemical warfare, they believe bad things can happen.
