Why not the complete extract.....reveals much more.....
If Iran does go nuclear, Saudi Arabia may not be far behind. It has options. Riyadh underwrote Pakistan's atomic-bomb program and keeps the country's economy afloat with its largess. The "arrangement with Pakistan is too strong" to dismiss an almost overnight nuclearization of the Arab peninsula with their help, Mr. Alwaleed suggests. Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who returned to power in June, lived in Saudi exile after a 1999 military coup. "Nawaz Sharif, specifically, is very much Saudi Arabia's man in Pakistan," Mr. Alwaleed says.
And more dangerously
As the West stood aside, extremist factions in the rebel coalition strengthened and turned on each other. Some are linked to al Qaeda, "really savages, like in Afghanistan," says Mr. Alwaleed. Of course, Gulf money and weapons also went to them, as it goes to their brethren in Afghanistan and Pakistan today—but that's left unsaid.

How credible is this person as a voice of Saudi Arabia?

He's a self made billionaire and has a great deal of influence in S.Arabia.

Even if he ain't to be believed, Nawaz's historic record of scumming to the Saudi Royals, is enough evidence to prove who he really works for.

No offense Saudi brothers but Pakistan doesn't need any other country's man. Zardari was dollar pimp (and hence everyone's bit%ch) and Nawaz is "buried under Saudi gratification". Pakistan will be a better friend if its PM was man of Pakistan.

But then what about the Nuclear proliferation, Nuclear program funding, funding militancy, their beneficiaries and sympathizers?

Then probably we should also be man enough to return the SAAB-2000s back to KSA since they footed the bill....But here our constraints will make us hypocrites, no? But wait, we don't even have the money to repair the ones damaged in Kamra. Big talk suits only when one's own home is in order.

this is the biggest problem, when iran and saudi arabia are blood thirsty of each other, we have saudi puppet in pakistan, which means that situations can turn pakistan against iran, if that happens, pakistan would become internally weak bcz large number of shiite in pakistan supports iran,

pakistan should try to distance itself from saudi puppet government and look towards iran for friendly relations,

This is the problem with both the sects, one loves KSA more than Pakistan and other loves Iran more than Pakistan. Nevertheless, both consider eachother takfiris. Here is an extract from Tehran Times
Takfiris continue to attack Shias in Pakistan
Sectarian violence spread in Pakistan on Monday after clashes between minority Shia and majority Sunni Muslims near the capital Islamabad prompted the government to impose a curfew and block mobile phone services over the weekend.

According to Reuters, clashes confined to areas in and around the capital at the weekend spilled over on Monday into two towns in the volatile northwest.

Tensions are high this month as Shias mark Muharram, an annual period of mourning which has often sparked bouts of violence.

Rawalpindi, a garrison city near Islamabad, remained under curfew and tight security for three days after an attack on a Shia procession on Friday in which at least eight people were killed.

On Monday, a mob set shops on fire in a predominantly Shia district in the northwestern town of Kohat in clashes that killed two policemen and a civilian, police said.

According to Shia news, Takfiri terrorists of the outlawed Sipah-e-Sahaba attacked a Shia mosque, an Imam Bargah (Husseinia), and a commercial market in the city of Kohat in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province on Monday.

Takfiri is an expression used to describe individuals or groups who believe they are the only true Muslims.

Two policemen were killed and several others were injured in the terrorist attacks.

The armed terrorists attacked Imam Bargah Syed Habib, where two policemen were killed and three were injured. In the Teera Bazaar, the terrorists set a market owned by Shias on fire.

The terrorists also attacked a Shia mosque in Kohat and it was reported that they were harassing people by sporadically firing gunshots, despite the imposition of a curfew.

Tension also prevailed in Hangu, where terrorists fired rockets on Thursday, November 14, which was the day of Ashura, with the intention of disturbing the peaceful observance of Ashura. A curfew was also imposed in Hangu.

During Muharram, a period of mourning to mark the death of Imam Hussein (AS), a grandson of Prophet Mohammed (S), Shias hold long processions to express their grief.

The authorities imposed a mobile phone blackout on Rawalpindi, the seat of the Pakistani army, and parts of Islamabad over the weekend. The curfew was only lifted on Monday, but the city remained tense.

Attacks on Pakistan's Shias, who make up about a fifth of the population of 180 million, have worsened in recent years.

Most of the attacks are the work of extremists affiliated with banned groups, such as the Taliban or Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, which wants to drive all the Shias out of Pakistan.

Hundreds of Shias were killed in bombings and other attacks last year, including incidents in which children on their way to school were gunned down and doctors heading for work were shot.

You are changing the definition of ''self made'' here'.

He is a self made billionaire , not an oil baron.

No offense Saudi brothers but Pakistan doesn't need any other country's man. Zardari was dollar pimp (and hence everyone's bit%ch) and Nawaz is "buried under Saudi gratification". Pakistan will be a better friend if its PM was man of Pakistan.

We probably should protect Saudi Arabia by having facilities there which would be ours to keep and operate, like NATO has agreements with its members. Pakistan cannot afford a proliferation disaster. No freaking way !

What worries me is how our leaders are 'up for grabs' ~

That's the main issue with Pakistanis, If they had to love other countries more than Pakistan than why Pakistan is required at first place, they can do it better as minority in Akhanad Bharat.
