I couldn't agree more! Although I do not single out any specific religious or political groups, these weapons, their components and the knowledge
build them should never fall into hands of ideological extremists!
Yes, I include Israel and any other nuclear weapon state that has not pledged no first use with their arsenals.
Pakistans threat to disseminate nukes is unacceptable - just as Israel's threat to launch ICBMs and cruise missiles at European capitals when
"existence of the state" is threatened. Mass murder and genocide are never acceptable Imho!
I realize its a bit off topic, but MAD and NUTS doctrine are not effective ways to manage such threats. A transparent and honest regime would seek
denuclearization...multilaterally of course.
As far as Turkey goes, they're a lot like NK..plenty of rhetoric without the will (and sometimes means) to back it up. Like you said, Turkey will not
alienate itself from Nato. Now, that's not to say Pakistan is no threat, but they must realize that any nuclear attack will be met with at best
counterforce attacks and at worse, strategic counter value attacks leaving Islambad back at year 1.
I truly hope we can one day see a nuke free world. One day. The result of disarmament failure is us watching nukes fly in our lifetime.
