I haven't heard of any rumored plans to secure those weapons. Have you? All I have seen is just the usual fear mongering and "what if'ing" about worst case scenarios. I haven't heard anyone suggesting that we go in and secure them though.

I guess they wouldn't go on record like this if they weren't receiving some sort of pressure though.

There has been `mention` in the press of securing them against `rogue` use - as a number of factions are Pro-Taliban.
