I’m Confused.

We’re in Iraq for some reason. No WMDs or nuclear weapons turned out to be there, which were a large part of our rationale for going in.

Iran has the beginnings of a nuclear program. They may be making weapons. And it’s pretty sure we’re taking them down next.

North Korea has (or at least had) capabilities to produce nuclear weapons. And they have malicious intent towards us – they would love to start something, and nobody is in doubt of that.

Pakistan has nuclear weapons. They are not a member of the non-proliferation treaty. They also have Osama bin Laden. Yet they are considered our ally.

Could somebody tell me why we’re going after the “maybe a threat” nations when there are countries actively threatening us that we are doing nothing about?
