Glick: In Pakistan, They Trust

It is a testament to the precarious state of the world today that in a week that saw North Korea carry out a possible test of a hydrogen bomb, the most frightening statement uttered did not come from Pyongyang.

It came from Pakistan.

Speaking in the military garrison town of Rawalpindi, Pakistani Army chief Gen. Raheel Sharif said that any Iranian threat to Saudi Arabia’s territorial integrity will “wipe Iran off the map.”

    “This rule is fully applicable to nuclear as well as conventional warfare. I want
    to make it clear, this is not an Al Queda document, this is a Pakistani (military forces) document. A nuclear power is already on record in saying that they can justify nuclear weapons in jihad. That is true as a matter of fact. If you disagree, (then) you are

    Stephen Coughlin paraphrasing a Pakistani Military document which describes how nuclear weapons and jihad are compatible.

      Thank you TC for that wonderful snippet just before bed time. I’m so glad I read it before trying to get some sleep…

    • It is only time. There will be some sort of confrontation. In the ME there always is.

      And Muslims will be creative with whatever weapon they can get their hands on.

      Islam is a killing cult. What do you expect?

      Caughlin may be quoting the Pakistani military correctly, but in this case, nuclear jihad is all about the implosion of the umma.

      I actually know several Canadians who are of Pakistani origins/birth and have for decades. One chap was FORCED to visit Pakistan for business reasons about a decade ago. He VERY reluctantly went. I asked why he was so distraught since this was an opportunity to reconnect with family members he’d not seen in over 30 years. “You don’t understand,” he explained. “Everybody who is actually sane left Pakistan years ago! The place is a nightmare!” I actually did know that, but had never heard it from the proverbial horse’s mouth.

    Oh well, at least Pakistan is still on our side…sort of…what’s that old military saying, “He may be a sonofabitch, but he’s OUR sonofabitch”? Never a good idea to count on that always being the case.

    The probability is that the Sauds financed Pakistan’s nuclear program. They just haven’t taken delivery, yet.

    WE can hope. Lets egg them on and get the sunni and shite to whipe each other of the map for us. Then all we have to deal with is leftists.
