But that is exactly what US has done and is doing with Pakistan :roll: Even before terrorism hit the US shores, Pakistan has been exporting terrorsism to different countires. It is the sole cause of Nuclear proliferation. What did US do? It not just looked the other way, it apeased it. Because it helped US interests by containing USSR's influence over the region. In spite of other nations in the vicinity facing problems, US did ONLY what suited US.
As far as I am concerned, US holds no moral superiority over others. It is just another bully and just another instance of "Might is Right" philosophy. The fact that it is a wealthy and successfull (in general) nation is definitely apreciable but that's it. Rich are not Gods and poor are not devils.
BTW, if I am not calling US morally superior, that does not mean I am calling US morally inferior. So don't start arguing over that.

So which countries did Pakistan sell nuclear bombs to? North Korea seems to be doing quite well without Pakistan's help. Israel managed to make a bomb without Pakistan. You aren't going to claim that Pakistan helped India build the bomb, are you?
