The media aren’t asking some of the most important questions. Instead they focus on fluff — with no forethought about what is coming down the tracks. So let us together examine some upcoming events.

1) The pending collapse of Pakistan. Not since the fall of the Peacock Throne in Iran in 1978 and the return from Paris of the Ayatollah Khomeini in early 1979 have we seen a Muslim country spill into the streets in a chaotic mass of teaming people. But we may soon see this frightening scene — with one added complication:

What happens to the Pakistani nuclear arsenal?

Does it fall into the hands of the Taliban, who are the most likely cause of the fall of the Pak government?

And does that mean that the single most popular figure in Pakistan - as measured by multiple polls - will have control of those nukes?

Oh, that would be Osama Bin Laden, by the way.

Or, as has been written years ago, is it true that there is a special “US military team in the region prepared to ‘secure’ these nuclear weapons”?

What does India - also a nuclear power - do if they see this chaos? Do they make a move on a distracted and confused rival? Do they try to re-seize Kashmir?

Remember, there are hardened and lingering feelings between these two countries. But India does not want the Taliban and its unpredictable craziness to run Islamabad.

2) Iran is rapidly moving toward producing their own nuclear weapons and Israel is prepping the world for a possible pre-emptive series of strikes to disable/set back/delay the Iranian entry into the Nuclear Club.

Will the Obama Administration help Israel? Will they allow Israel to make these attacks which are certain to cause all sorts of nasty international repercussions?

Or will Obama simply try to “talk” his way out of this conundrum?

3) Will this Swine Flu story impact the debate over illegal immigration? Why aren’t we closing our Southern border?

How long can an inept Janet Napolitano survive at Homeland Security? She is a blunderbuss and totally in over her head.

4) Whatever happened to the South African nuclear arsenal?

The public explanation is that after the fall of the all-white government in 1990 or so, their military disassembled their nuclear weapons.

Do you believe that? Is that realistic?

Did they sell them to someone else? Did the U.S.A. come in and deactivate these weapons?

4) Arlen Specter’s defection isn’t that big a deal. He’ll still vote the same way on issues in the Senate.

The bigger issue is: When are the conservatives and Republicans going to sit down and work at stating what we stand for — not just what we oppose?

This is the key to our side someday reattaining the trust of the American people.

Until we do this we will be consigned to the minority and just reacting to what Obama and the Democrats do.
