#1 Nice try, Wajid, but no Subway Hoagie for you today - AFGANISTAN, CENTASIA, + CAUCASIA, i.e sovereign lands once controlled by ancient Persia + Seljiks, etc., is IMO more in danger of being territorially used by contempor Iran as a new, physical anti-US Nuke-WMDS "Ho Chi Minh Trail" than distant Pakistan is.
PAK is at best a secondary or minor support front unless a US-Iran War expands outside of Iran proper.
OTOH, PAK'S LR NUKES + PRO-IRAN ISLAMISTS IN GOVTSHARE WOULD BE MOST USEFUL TO TEHRAN, ESPEC IN DETERRING US-NATO STRIKES AGZ DEFENDING IRANIAN MIL + BASIJ FORCES BOTH DOMESTIC + OUTSIDE OF IRAN.

#4 Maybe Israel could make a deal with India to turn Pak into a nuclear test site for neutron bombs.

#5 Pakistan claims its pilots fought successfully against Israel in the '67 and '73 Arab-Israeli wars.
With that kind of support, Iran is sunk.

#6 I'd say India should be ready for an opportunity if the Pak air force goes West.

#7 Personally I do not wish to breath Israeli fallout.
But, oh well.... There are worse things.
Yesterday I had the pleasure(?) of talking with a fellow form Hamburg. It was informative to learn that Hitler is alive and well.

#8 D *** NG IT, no way Hitler can still be alive - I times met Him long ago + he was already massively overqualified for AARP + Social Security as a [eloquent] Super-Senior Citizen.
