  1. So far so good for Pakistan,

    FAO-“While the production increase is expected mostly in Europe, prospects for the 2013 wheat crop in the Far East are generally favourable with output expected to reach record levels in China and Pakistan”

  2. “and become a threat to national and global security” — Oops, too late. Pakistan is already there.

  3. Much more likely disaster – scare them into solar panels and wind mills for no valid reason. The crippling electricity prices, mass unemployment and food riots will make them less likely to nuke us????? Now go to the bathtub and play with your ships and leave thinking to people who can.
