  • Pakistan - en stormakt innen atomvåpen


    Fra 2011 men illustrerer poenget om vekst. Hentet fra artikkelen fra 2012 litt lenger ned.

    Pakistan er en stormakt man ikke skal kimse av rent atomvåpenmessig. Stikkord: vekst og muskler. Vennskap med Russland og Kina er nok til at enkelte misliker alt og litt til.

    Eyes on the ball:




    Pakistan has 130-140 nuclear weapons, converts F16 to deliver nukes, claims US report

    Authored by Hans M Kristensen+ and Robert S Norris, the report says that analysis of a large number of commercial satellite images+ of Pakistan army's garrisons and air force bases shows what appear to be mobile launchers and underground facilities that might be related to nuclear forces.

    "Speculation that Pakistan may become the world's third-largest nuclear weapon state - with a stockpile of some 350 warheads a decade from now - are, we believe, exaggerated, not least because that would require a buildup two to three times faster than growth over the past two decades," it said.

    "We estimate that its stockpile could more realistically grow to 220-250 warheads by 2025, if the current trend continues. If that happens, it would make Pakistan the world's fifth-largest nuclear weapon state.

    China helps Pakistan build nuclear reactors yielding weapon-grade Plutonium: India

    Beijing’s constant assistance to Islamabad’s nuclear programs has been in contravention of its stand on India’s entry to NSG, the 48-member grouping that regulates nuclear trade. Beijing contends that New Delhi being non-signatory to Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) has been an impediment. However, China turned a blind eye to Pakistan’s track record in nuclear proliferation by supplying nuclear material to North Korea.
