Lately, the focus on the War on Terror has fallen on Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, and London.
So far, weapons used by terrorists in these places have been conventional.
Here is the scenario that causes me to lose sleep at night:
Extremists in Pakistan have made several attempts to kill President Musharraf.
Pakistan has demonstrated the ability to detonate nuclear weapons.
Extremists will continue to try to eliminate Musharraf as a moderating influence in Pakistan.
If they succeed in assassinating him, they can take control of a government with a proven nuclear arsenal, and technologists with the ability to use those weapons.
India and Pakistan have, on several occasions, come to blows in their conflict over who owns Kashmir.
Will Islamic extremists use those weapons to settle the argument with India, OR.........
Will they try to sneak those weapons into New York or Baltimore harbor?
Can we sit and wait for them to make that decision?
