This is something of a bogus thread and poor piece by The Times of London. The US were the leaders in training Special Forces and other specialist units/agencies in how to deal with HAZMAT weapons and materials, especially with the 'suitcase bombs' threat, since the collapse of the Iron Curtain.

The story MAY refer to the fact that the US is training Pakistani SF troops in this role, but should a situation arise, I am sure that these newly, trainined troops would be marginalized. A bit of a let down as The Times which does, on occasion, produce some good stories.

I imagine with 2012 around the corner and all the growing rumors of doom and gloom, it wouldn't hurt to keep our elite forces trained for such a scenario.

We probably have similar plans for our own country and other countries with nukes as well.

Never know when some fanatic or group of fanatics decide to take it upon themselves to fulfill 2012.

Now you know many here including myself have discussed this very scenario in many threads. It does raise some rather interesting questions as to the timing of the release of such information.

I'm going to post another link after I'm done reading through them.


Here's a possibility also, since Obama wants to go into Pakistan they only way he can do it with more than drones is to get rid of Pakistans nukes. He says that terrorists are attempting to get the nukes and then we had no choice to take over Pakistans nukes under our supervision. Then there's no possibility of nukes being used against staged troops before they go into Pakistan. This may or may not be a scenario, but I think this is alot closer to having the threat of a terrorists using a stolen nuke. It scares the public and it shows that Obama is committed in protecting the country and going in to get the nukes.

You should be more worried about our own government and the Chinese.


I agree about the Chinese.

This covert, crack unit has to be Delta Force, right? Or some other elite Tier 1 JSOC unit put together for this purpose...

Do you think the Army has some high-speed, elite CBRN unit that we don't know about? I think that it would make sense in these times.

In fact, doesn't the Army's Asymmetrical Warfare Group kind of seem suited for this kind of mission. I really don't know. I can only speculate.

Yes it is as relevant today as the topic was a little over a year ago when this thread was first posted. Here is an Indian perspective. It should be taken with a grain of salt...

Pak nuke security in focus again after naval base attack

WASHINGTON: It's a subject Americans can't stop discussing and one Pakistan hates talking about. The terrorist attack on the Pakistani military facility in Karachi has once again focused world (and Washington's) attention on the security of the country's fast-growing nuclear arsenal.

The Obama administration on Monday did not publicly go beyond "strongly" condemning the attack on Pakistan Naval Station (PNS) Mehran and appreciating the "service and sacrifices of their brave Armed Forces," but the incident has re-ignited the simmering debate about vulnerability of its nuclear weapons. US analysts noted that Mehran is only 15 miles away from the Masroor Air Base, where Pakistan is believed have a large depot for nuclear weapons that can be delivered from the air.

They are there already have been since 2009!!


ISLAMABAD: Contrary to Pakistani military's persistent assertion that it will not allow foreign troops to operate within the country, US special forces were embedded with Pakistani troops for intelligence gathering and were also deployed on joint operations in their territory, according to secret US diplomatic cables. The cables released by WikiLeaks said that US special operations forces were embedded with Pakistani troops for intelligence gathering by the summer of 2009 and deployed with them on joint operations in Pakistani territory by September the same year. The issue has gained heightened sensitivity in the wake of the US raid against Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad. The revelations go against the Pakistani military's claim that it will not allow foreign troops to operate within the country for operations to flush out the Taliban and other militant elements. "We have created intelligence fusion cells with embedded US special forces with both SSG and Frontier Corps (Bala Hisar, Peshawar) with the Rover equipment ready to deploy," then US ambassador Anne Patterson was quoted by Dawn newspaper as saying in a cable to the state department in May 2009.
Time s of India -- WikiLeaks

Elite US troops ready to combat Pakistani nuclear hijacks

The US army is training a crack unit to seal off and snatch back Pakistani nuclear weapons in the event that militants, possibly from inside the country’s security apparatus, get their hands on a nuclear device or materials that could make one.

The specialised unit would be charged with recovering the nuclear materials and securing them.
(visit the link for the full news article)



This is the exact pretext in which they will invade and occupy Pakistan. Just like how the Iraq war was supposed to protect us from WMDs. Except this time they actually have "WMDs" which in the minds of some people justifies it. Plus, Osama was there and stuff! And the Taliban is big there too! Al-Qaeda! 9/11! 9/11! Nine Eleven!
