USA: Pakistan develops tactical nuclear weapons

25
The US media publishes material stating the work in Pakistan to create a nuclear weapons new type. Such a statement in the course of his speech before members of the Senate Committee on Defense made the head of the national intelligence of the United States Dan Coats. From Coates's statement:


Pakistan is developing new types of nuclear weapons. They create including short-range tactical nuclear weapons. Such weapons pose a threat to the countries of the region.


According to the head of the American National Intelligence, this can not but cause concern, since hotbeds of terrorist activity continue to manifest themselves in Pakistan. Coates made it clear that he was referring to the activity of the Taliban, who often cross the border with Afghanistan without any particular obstacles. Coates also reported on recent clashes in the disputed state of Jammu and Kashmir between Pakistani and Indian security forces. As a result of the shootout, both sides suffered losses. The Indian press previously reported on 9 killed by India and 10 by Pakistan.

Coates said that representatives of one of the terrorist groups based on the Pakistan-India border also participated in the shootout.

USA: Pakistan develops tactical nuclear weapons


Also, the head of the American National Intelligence said that "the threat is growing in Asia and from North Korea," which continues to develop nuclear weapons and nuclear missile testing.

          With such statements, the mattresses clearly expect to strengthen their position in India, bearing in mind the friendship between Pakistan and China.

            Straight from the tongue Pasha ripped off .. Everything is exactly the case in this situation! Hindus unfasten good money .. I won’t be surprised if the US itself has already delivered this technology to Pakistan and is preparing to offer India a similar one, but for a lot of money ..

          India, by the way, also has atomic weapons, but the packs are friends with China and all together conflict with India, that snake ball. yes

            The US decided to change the "beloved wife" in the region from Pakistan to India. laughing . From Islamabad there is little that can be gained, especially since Beijing’s ally is another Delhi affair. But will Modi only agree to a role that was banned from the USA? hi

              India needs a strong ally. They themselves, until they believe in themselves. (in my opinion correct). So the choice is not great, and the USA is also considered by the Hindus for this role.

                Tightened m \ y Delhi and Beijing is gradually descending to zero. China plans to pour 300bn. to India - the United States is not capable of this. Both leaders visited each other. SCO, BRICS, ABII and CICA to help them - "tools" for building relations have been created. Last year, the conflict on the border of China-India was quickly put out by the leaders of the countries. hi

                    I understand that, but Modi is quite a pragmatic person to sign up for state plans to fuel conflict. To him, the road to the US was closed before the presidency - Modi often visited China as an honored guest. The United States therefore recorded Beijing and Moscow as opponents, and Indians as "beloved wives." The triumvirate of the RF-PRC-India will negate the dominance of states in the world - Modi himself supported (before the presidency) this integration in Asia - and therefore was not nice in Washington. Delhi from the United States wants to see technology, as it was with Beijing and Washington in the past. hi

    And these are there too .. And it would be okay with the reaction of India ... The main thing is that such "firecrackers from the devil do not come up ... Although, they say, the packs keep their nuclear arguments securely, but still somehow restless, an unclear country ...

    Urgent carrier group in the Arabian Sea and be sure to recall the American "crushing blow." But if Pakistan sends the United States to hell (unlikely), then definitely you can drain the water.

    How do they still live with SUCH paranoia? It’s possible to move away with one’s mind, they see a threat to their security in everything, they see a muzzle from each hole, and everyone poses a threat ... These stupid people will probably calm down only when there are no countries on the planet except the United States.

    Not very much. Ground forces are approximately equivalent in technology. Tanks in India are 3024 for 2017, Pakistan - 2561 in the ranks +270 in reserve. Total 2831. The difference in 2 hundreds of tanks is not so significant. Armored fighting vehicles in India 2500 and 1422 in Pakistan. Artillery - yes, here India has an advantage of about 30%. India has significantly more mortars - 6500 in India versus 2350 in Pakistan. but Pakistan’s number of nuclear weapons and carriers is indeed greater.
    The creation of tactical nuclear weapons is dangerous in a slightly different form. Not a power weapon. India and Pakistan have it at the level of tactical charges - about 12-401 ct. This situation was leveled if India would create a tactical start. Pakistan has nuclear weapons and delivery vehicles more than India

    There really is a danger. And the danger is precisely in the creation of tactical weapons. This is not about the power of charges, but in storage conditions. Now Pakistan's nuclear weapons (strategic) are at several bases in a disassembled state. Even if terrorists seize such a storage facility, they will have only fragments of nuclear weapons, and not fully collected charges. But tactical - tactical should be either in the army or at several bases. But since tactical can be applied significantly at a lower level of conflict, it should logically be equipped. But can the armed forces of Pakistan withstand the threat of a nuclear weapon ??? This is the danger, and not that the Americans have paranoia

    Are you not indifferent to such "faces"? Or is it worth paying attention to what such a "face" says ??

    How? How? Enter troops, as in Afghanistan? But then we were 250 million against 30 million Afghanistan. Now we are 145 million against 207 million Pakistan. How do you propose to solve the problem of "adder"?

    Pakistan once blocked the transit of goods for the coalition forces in Afghanistan, the last time the money solved the problem. Now the Americans are very sorry, and it’s not a topic ... It will be interesting to see what happens if Pakistan closes the transit again.
