    Al Qaeda says would use Pakistani nuclear weapons

    Al Qaeda says would use Pakistani nuclear weapons | Reuters

    DUBAI (Reuters) - If it were in a position to do so, Al Qaeda would use Pakistan's nuclear weapons in its fight against the United States, a top leader of the group said in remarks aired Sunday.

    Pakistan has been battling al Qaeda's Taliban allies in the Swat Valley since April after their thrust into a district 100 km (60 miles) northwest of the capital raised fears the nuclear-armed country could slowly slip into militant hands.

    "God willing, the nuclear weapons will not fall into the hands of the Americans and the mujahideen would take them and use them against the Americans," Mustafa Abu al-Yazid, the leader of al Qaeda's in Afghanistan, said in an interview with Al Jazeera television.

    Gosh let's see if they wish to talk about peace with Hillary we can all meet on a mountian top in Italy hold hands and sign the old Coke song. Everybody ready?

    Talking with al Qaeda is like talking to rocks. Nothing but physical force will ever move them. We now find ourselves in a position of threat from Iran, N. Korea and now Pakistan if al Qaeda takes over. Wow being weak in your statements and deeds really works tp promote peace in our time. Way to go Neville Obama.

    This is not news. Al Qaeda is not in a position to do this.
    Pakistan is allied to the West.

    Pakistan is weak and doing less than is needed to fight the threat. Not only that but reports of sympathy by some in population of Pakistan to al Qaeda's insurgency is not helping. The current leadership in Pakistan is weak and may not prevail in even in the short term.
    Don't count on the status quo to hold for long, our shows of weakness do nothing but embolden those who would have us dead talks or no talks.

    A show of strength is not starting a war. Showing weakness invites threats and the tests of your will as were predicted by Biden. If you let someone push you around and do nothing you're going to get more of the same until someone kicks your can while you're still talking about how nice you are.
    Sadly the break you get from that attitude is an arm, leg or jaw.
    Reagan wouldn't sit still and everyone knew it. Obams is spineless so far and everyone knows it. They also see him and the Dims (no spell error) preparing to gut the military and it's the wrong thing to do.

    So talk tough, but do nothing is your answer? Exactly what "show of strength" do you want Obama to do?

    Who said do nothing? Obama is the do nothing king so far and the reason he doesn't open his mouth is is he doesn't have the where with all to back up what needs to be said. I'm not talking about idle threats. Stop projecting your thoughts on what I say. Obama brought this on the world by being a wimp before the election.
    It's past do for us to quietly send an envoy to Pakistan and talk turkey to the new leadership and the same goes for N. Korea.
    It also wouldn't hurt to put an end to the War in Afghanistan with a huge push to end all resistance with over whelming force then leave them to their own devices.
    Cuts in the military budget from the Granola Liberals is getting old and signals a lack of resolve, making all statements empty threats.

    I'm sure this makes Pakistan really happy.
