Im not sure how much of our history you know of. But we went through a similar period when our nuclear program was in its development phase. Ever heard of the Pressler Amendment? If not then, did you hear about the Afghan War post 9/11? Pakistan had collapsed, it was disintegrating. The bloodshed, oh the bloodshed was overwhelming. Even as a kid when I didn't understand what was happening, I cried and I saw my mom cry every time there was a blast. So please take your crap somewhere else. I can't shed a single tear for you Iranians. You played your part in this blood bath that went on for a better part of a decade and still continues. But guess what, we are alive and kicking and Allah Willing, we shall continue to do so, no thanks to you. May I remind you that the plan to dismember Pakistan included Iran taking up Balochistan as one of its provinces even as NWFP was to be absorbed into Afghanistan and Sindh/Punjab into India? We fought a war on 4 borders, and then some.Unlike Pakistan, Iran is engaged in a brutal intelligence war against the whole West. Despite that it has managed to stand its ground. Losing assets are expected in a war.. pretty normal. Pakistan is lucky it is only facing a third world nation like India. In fact, i am sure Pakistan will not even survive 1 month of the type of sanctions and sabotage targeting Iran. It would fall apart as fast as how the US marines and choppers penetrated into the heart of Pakistan.
