While the world's news has been focused on events in Egypt some other news relating to other troublesome Islamic countries and people may have slipped beneath most people radar.
As Islamic countries go, few are as troubling as Pakistan, hence it is rather disturbing to note the rapid growth in that nations nuclear arsenal. It was revealed this week, virtually unnoticed by the newsmen currently occupied cheering on the emerging Islamic revolution in the Middle East, that Pakistan's nuclear capacity has recently doubled in size and overtaken their significantly less troublesome neighbour and rival India.
Pakistan is now expected to soon overtake Britain and become the fifth largest nuclear power on the planet.
Given the increasing instability in Pakistan, and the growing influence on al-Quada / Taliban style militant Islam, especially within the army and Intelligence services this is a very uncomfortable development, and it is curious that it has not received more attention.
Remind me again how large is our annual foreign aid contribution to Pakistan?
Another story which has received scant coverage here in Britain is the recent revelation by Wikileaks that the British labour party under Gordon Brown actively conspired with Libya in securing the release of the Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi from a Scottish prison (you remember al-Megrahi, he was the guy who had three months to live in 2009, but who hasn't died bet) the degree to which this was an act of betrayal against our our American allies, and the degree that this may have damaged the Anglo American relationship is outlined in this posting by Adam Shaw at the American Thinker. (Hat tip Dr. D)
Given how willingly New Labour, both under Brown and his perma-tanned predecessor, betrayed their own people, I guess it is hardly surprising they would stab our allies in the back.
