    It was Pakistan who acquired the nukes first; Bhutto's dream to have a united Islamist block, nuclear armed, equal to Russia and the USA. It was India's failure after independence to keep Pakistan as an autonomous region. The population transfer and separation of muslims and hindus was a mistake. Peace comes from intermixing and co-existence. Now the Islamist block is slowing coming into realization as Iran, Turkey join. What is the end of this? Peace and prosperity; or more war? For the doomsayers and end-of-the-worlders, there is another path, the path of peaceful co-existence. Turkey has never been able to follow peaceful co-existence, it's kill or be killed; Armenian genocide, Kurds, Cyprus, Alevis, Israel next? It's like reliving the old Indian wars and good ole Cowboy Bush was in the saddle. Erdogan and Ahmadinejad the new "Crazy Horse" or "Sitting Bull"? These people are naive to say the least.
