Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Of all the nasty conceivable consequences, I have to say this is the least likely to my mind. The Pakistanis are neither Shia nor Persian. I expect they would be horrified by an attack, but I can't imagine them getting involved.

Also, while they are a nuclear power, they only have an estimated 30-80 warheads. I don't think that is sufficient overkill capacity to let them divert a warhead targeted at, say, Mumbai to park in a U-Store in Long Beach.

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
