2. Some of us have been worrying about this for years!

And, Dotymed, the US didn't give Pakistan nuclear weapons, they were developed in Pakistan by Dr. Abdul Quadeer Khan. Khan not only developed a nuclear weapons capability for Pakistan, he's been a driver in nuclear proliferation. Khan's "nuclear wal-Mart,' provided North Korea with centrifuges for uranium enrichment, and probably some of the its bomb technology. He also provided centrifuges and nuclear technology to Iran and Libya.

Edited to add: Wikipedia has further information on Pakistan's nuclear weapons program, as well as their military and political doctrines on weapons of mass destruction.
