Great minds agree

Andrew Bolt is ridiculed for suggesting that Pakistan should spend less on bombs and more on flood preparedness.

Now Robert Fisk, of all people, pursues the same line of thinking as Bolt:

Before he resigned in 2008, President Pervez Musharraf was asked why nothing had been done to alleviate the plight of women in Pakistan. There was no money available, the General said. But Pakistan had to spend money on nuclear and conventional weapons "in order to live honourably". National honour, it seemed, mattered more than the lives and honour of the women of Pakistan.

When Bolt and Fisk agree on something, anything, it's gotta be a dead set certainty.
