Will Israel be Saved?
In Pakistan’s first transparent nuclear threat to Iran, its chief of army staff, Gen. Raheel Sharif, vowed Sunday to wipe Iran off the face of the earth if any harm came to Saudi Arabia. He gave this pledge to Saudi Deputy Crown Prince and Defense Minister Mohammed bin Salman, who was on a visit to a military base in Rawalpindi.
As for its nuclear arsenal, a 2010 report by the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists estimated that Pakistan possesses between 70 and 90 nuclear warheads. Other credible reports estimate the size of the arsenal at 120.
Pakistan refuses to adopt a no first-strike policy. In the US and worldwide, it is considered to be the greatest threat to global nuclear security. It is ironic that Iran has threatened repeatedly to wipe Israel off the map. Suddenly the tables have been turned by Pakistan threatening to wipe Iran off the map.
