'The obsession of the Pakistan army with India leads to several destabilising things. Support for the Taliban in Afghanistan. Support for groups like the Lashkar-e-Tayiba, that have attacked India. Every time you get an attack like that there is a possibility of a war. And then the build up of the their nuclear arsenals. Chances of a nuclear weapon landing in the hands of a terrorist group, or a nuclear war breaking out, are tiny. But they are higher here than anywhere else in the world.'

Five books on the legacy of the 1953 coup in Iran 17.8.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest
On anniversary of Mossadegh’s downfall, neither Iranian, American nor British authors can agree on its significance, says Gareth Smyth This week’s 62th anniversary of the coup upending Mohammad Mossadegh comes with interest as strong as ever in Iran’s best-known prime minister. But while historians and journalists see the coup of 19 August 1953 as a pivotal event for Iran, they agree on little else (including the transliteration of his name into Latin letters). The central point at issue in a flurry of books published in recent years is whether the overthrow of Mossadegh led somehow to the Islamic Revolution 26 years later. Given the close subsequent relationship of the Shah with the US, and Washington’s later hostility to the Islamic Republic, the American and British hands in the coup have left a bad smell for many Iranians, stirring nationalism and suspicion of foreign ...

A bomb killed a Pakistani provincial minister and at least 16 other people on Sunday at the minister's home in the political heartland of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Punjab province officials said. Police said the blast caused the roof to cave in as Punjab Home Minister Shuja Khanzada held meetings with around 20 people in his hometown of Attock in northern Pakistan. Two suicide bombers also died in the attack and several people were still missing and presumed to be under the rubble, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said.
