This is what everyone with 2 functioning brain cells has been worrying about since Pakistan has become... less than stable.

Pakistan's nuclear facilities have been attacked at least three times by home-grown extremists in little-reported incidents over the last two years, according to security experts, reports the Times of India.

The incidents include an attack on a nuclear missile storage facility at Sargodha on Nov. 1, 2007

a homicide bombing at the nuclear airbase at Kamra on Dec. 10, 2007, as tracked by Shaun Gregory, director of the Pakistan Security Research Unit at the University of Bradford in the UK.

But Bradford also noted a much more considerable raid by the Pakistani Taliban on Aug. 20, 2008, when homicide bombers blew up several entry points to a main armament complex at the country's main nuclear facility, the Wah Cantonment Ordnance Complex, according to the paper

If these reports are true, especially the last one, that is truly scary. A coordinated multiple prong attack on Pakistan's Main Nuclear Facility sounds like they are really trying.

This is the basis of why, last year, the US planned a special forces group to go into pakistan and either secure their nukes or remove them and the scientists.

The thought of terrorists with nuclear weapons is a nightmare beyond belief.

It is very real fear.

Also, don't forget the nuclear scientist's......

They can duplicate the equipment, it is their knowledge and the ability to teach others that is more valuable then any piece of hardware.
