This is comforting - Pakistan Adding Nukes

Don't you think that if your government is on the verge of collapse that maybe you ought to do something besides making MORE nuclear weapons?

Here is your link.

From the article:

Members of Congress have been told in confidential briefings that Pakistan is rapidly adding to its nuclear arsenal even while racked by insurgency, raising questions on Capitol Hill about whether billions of dollars in proposed military aid might be diverted to Pakistan’s nuclear program.

Not like military aid from the USA has ever been diverted before.

Obama administration officials said that they had communicated to Congress that their intent was to assure that military aid to Pakistan was directed toward counterterrorism and not diverted.

I feel so much better knowing that the Obama administration is on this issue. I'm sure that the virtual wall they plan on using to secure the border will keep wackos from bringing these weapons into the US after Pakistan changes it's name to "Terrorist Supply Central".

Of course there is a plan.

From the article:

The United States has a detailed plan for infiltrating Pakistan and securing its mobile arsenal of nuclear warheads if it appears the country is about to fall under the control of the Taliban, Al Qaeda or other Islamic extremists.

Somehow, I think it will be a little more difficult than just " . . . infiltrating Pakistan and securing it's mobile arsenal of nuclear warheads . . . "

That article is not very reassuring.

Another quote from the article:

What makes the Pakistan mission especially difficult is that the military has its missiles on Soviet-style mobile launchers and rail lines.

Maybe we could get the Pakistanis to tell Joe Biden the codes to where the nukes will be at any given time if he promises not to tell anyone. Then we could have the info in about 2 minutes.

Scary situation all around.

I recently read the book "One Second After". Stuff like this makes it even more likely that people willing to fling nukes around promiscuously could actually end up with some to play with.

"Lights Out" is another one on that subject. It may still be available online if you look for it.
