The Nukes Are Safe

Amid the turmoil in the muslim world, amid the backstabbing and betrayals in Afghanistan and Pakistan, what must always be remembered is that Pakistan is a nuclear state, having stolen the technology from the West. These nuclear devices must never be allowed to fall into the hands of non-state actors like al Qaeda, which is the principal reason the United States maintains steadfastly that Pakistan is a loyal ally in the midst of an enormous amount of evidence that they are not. It is the nukes. Pakistan insists they are safe, with specially trained and loyal guards. But it is clear it is only a matter of time before al Qaeda or the Taliban get their hands on one or more of Pakistan’s nukes, and then we will be faced with an existential threat.



The nukes are safe

They’re in good hands

In bunkers built

On shifting sands

Al Qaeda knows

Just where they are

They’ve friends who’ll leave

The door ajar

And late some night

And very soon

Lighted dimly

By the moon

A band of men

Of bristled beard

Will do what we

Have always feared

Ah well we had

The warning signs

The whispered sighs

Amid the pines

That told of things

That might go boom

When we leave Paks

To guard that room
