Iran has a president, backed by the theocrats who put him in office, who denies the Holocaust and threatens to destroy Israel almost every day while disparaging President Obama on a regular basis. It's strange how the media and the left wing in the U.S. for the most part are supportive or at least not antagonistic to Obama's new war in Afghanistan, while being against any action against Iran, a country that is a much bigger threat to us and the world at large. Pakistan deserves our full attention, too. It has many nuclear devices, and our aim should be to have Pakistan and India agree to a nuclear disarmament pact. The enmity between India and China would be an obstacle to any Indo-Pakistani deal, but we must try to get this done. Pakistan, not Afghanistan, is where we need to make a stand. Pakistan has the nukes, and Pakistan has a vast network of religious schools that train people to become terrorists. On the other hand, a large part of Pakistan's population isn't fundamentalist and would like to see a moderate form of Islam practiced within a democratic system of government. It is Pakistan where the world's democracies and even the monarchies of the Middle East should expend their time, energy and money to create a Pakistani state without nuclear weapons and where very devout Muslims and more moderate western-leaning Muslims can live together in peace without constant bombings and killings. Turkey comes to mind as a nation trying to accomplish this balance coming from the opposite point of view of an extremely secular state now trying to become a more religious state. Therefore, I say let's get out of our costly war in Afghanistan and start dealing with other nations on the problems of Pakistan and India.
