Pakistan or Iran?

Which do you suppose the pro-civilization side of the War on Terror should be more concerned about? On TCS Daily, Gregory Scoblete makes a compelling case that it should be Pakistan. Iran and North Korea have both benefited from exchange of WMD technology with Pakistan, Sunni extremism plays strong among the population, ties between al Qaeda are deep, and the remnants of AQ’s leadership are hiding within the country’s untamed borders. Realpolitik is of course the reason Pakistan is not ostensibly at the top of our list of problems to address; as long as Musharraf continues to be helpful, or to give the appearance of being helpful, it’s likely to stay that way, isn’t it?
