USA estranges Pakistan as Bush threatens Iran

The very severe strain in the US-Pakistan bilateral relations and also President Bush's warning of "all options open on Iran" absolutely does not augur well for regional peace and stability in the already turbulent West Asian region. The passions and sentiments there are potentially contagious in this epoch of (almost) real-time telecommunication and the political rhetoric in the US presidential campaigns in the next few months may further complicate issues and aggravate situations while US-led troops are still battling their enemies in Afghanistan and Iraq. President Bush's ideas and moves on West Asia, especially Iran, from now on to the formal assumption of office of next US president early next year is still noteworthy for he no longer needs to worry about his personal popularity and re-electability when making critical decisions.
