#2 As per PAKISTAN, ...
* DAILY TIMES.PK > PAKISTAN HEADING FOR NEW FIANCIAL CRISIS. Budget Deficit forecasted to rise to 7.0% of GDP from 6.6% vee last year, + Islamabad is running out of ways or schemas to fund itself.
Unpopularity of US Drone Strikes + NATO Supply Routes + creation of new Pak Provinces seen as a US-NATO-India attempt to break up Pakistan + ongoing severe National Power-Energy crisis repor threatening to overshadow the anti-Militant War = MORE EVIDENCIA/INDICIA THAT ANY US-IRAN WAR MAY NOT NECESSARILY BEGIN IN IRAN = PERSIAN GULF PROPER.
* IIRC DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS [old] > US HAS PLAN TO SECURE PAKISTAN'S NUKES USING MILITARY FORCE.
