Pakistan expanding its nuclear capability


www.msnbc.msn.com

What is clear, Albright says, is that Pakistani officials are committing limited national resources to building up the country’s nuclear arsenal, resources he and others note have been supplemented and replenished by U.S. aid.

“They’re building a capability beyond any reasonable requirement,” says Albright, who first wrote about Khushab two years ago, when he noticed construction south of an existing but smaller plutonium production reactor that’s been operating since about 1998.

“The addition of the two reactors does two things,” Mian notes. “It allows them to make a lo

So this is what our hard earned tax dollars have gone to? Here we have a country in danger of collapse and we go and make sure they have all the funds they need to make thermonuclear weapons and cruise missiles for their subs! How short sighted could our gov't be?

If Pakistan falls to the Taliban, the world will be a much more dangerous place all of a sudden. The implications to India, North Korea, Iran and many other nations are potentially disasterous since this technology will be transfered to the highest bidder right away. Maybe even the direct transfer of weapons!

Raises the question in my mind filled with possible conspiracies...

Are USA just building largest "false flag" ever with this Pakistani civil war, and with their old Mujahediin comrades?

Pakistani nukes - what a base to all official lies!

I hear ya! Sometimes I wonder if there is a conspiracy or if they're just simply losing control. One thing all these nuclear and soon to be nuclear countries have in common is alliance with China/Russia. Who just happen to be the countries that we will screw over as our dollar becomes worthless.

Maybe it just breaks down to good old street violence. We rip off China/Russia, they get their bangers together for some payback.

Perhaps a reaction to activity in India .





July 25, 2008/ PAKISTAN launched a full-scale diplomatic offensive against India's nuclear deal with Washington yesterday, warning it would provoke a new atomic arms race between the two South Asia rivals and harm non-proliferation efforts.



theaustrailian.news.com July 25, 2008


Moving to block consensus and stall a process that both India and the US are seeking to expedite, Pakistan warned the deal "threatens to increase the chances of a nuclear arms race in the sub-continent".


It would seem that it wasn`t an idle threat by Pakistan .

Perhaps, isn't it interesting that we would cause the escalation through nuclear agreements with India and turn around and fund the escalation in Pakistan? Worse still, a Pakistan that is totally unstable and could be the first nuclear failed state! Schizo if ya ask me. We need a consistant foreign policy and quick.
