Pakistan is possibly supplementing or replacing its current uranium-based nuclear weapons arsenal with plutonium-based,weapons that are more destructive and easily deliverable.Pakistan is rapidly adding to its nuclear arsenal.Outside Pakistan, observers wondered if the nuclear arsenal was secure from potential terrorist theft; inside Pakistan, observers wondered whether the arsenal was safe from a possible US or Indian incursion.
Pakistan is in the process of building two new plutonium production reactors and a new reprocessing facility to
fabricate more nuclear weapons fuel, wrote nuclear experts.
Pak nuclear stockpile to touch 200 in a decadeHans M Kristensen and Robert S Norris in the issue of Bulletin of Atomic Scientists.”It is also developing new delivery systems. Enhancements to Pakistan’s nuclear forces include a new nuclear capable medium-range ballistic missile, the development of two new nuclear-capable short-rangeballistic missiles, and the development of two new nuclear-capable cruise missiles,” they wrote.
India got heavy water and reprocessing plants in 1960s. And by 1965, intelligence estimates concluded India could go nuclear in a few years, which it did by exploding its first test in 1974. . The retired brigadier, who has been closely associated with Pakistan’ Strategic Plans Division, recalled that the Indian nuclear explosions in May 1998 at Pokhran forced Pakistan to test its own devices, leading to nuclearization of South Asia.Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was determined to deny rival India a nuclear monopoly. In 1965, the future prime minister said: “If India builds the bomb, we will eat grass or leaves, even go hungry.” In 1972 he gave the go-ahead to a nuclear programme. Today, Pakistan is estimated to have 80 to 100 weapons.
New Threats To Pakistan’s Nuclear PolicyThere are new pressures on
Pakistan to limit its ability to maintain a credible nuclear deterrence. These pressures are coming from the Conference on Disarmament, or CD as it is known, that opens today in Geneva. The United States is working on two tracks. One is to induct India into the Nuclear Suppliers Group and end the last barrier that stops India from procuring nuclear technology and material in the open market. And two, use international treaties to force Pakistan to freeze Pakistani nukes at their current size and potential.
While US officials use public diplomacy to send messages through Radio Pakistan and other arms of the pro-US government in Islamabad claiming Washington has no interest in targeting the Pakistani nuclear program, US actions speak louder about the actual US policy toward Pakistan’s strategic capabilities.
The Pakistani government is maintaining a strange silence on the new pressures on its nuclear capabilities. Other departments of the government that shape Pakistan’s nuclear policy, like the Nuclear Command Authority, are also silent apparently in deference to the incumbent government.
To break this silence, a Pakistani nuclear expert Dr. Shireen Mazari took the initiative to sensitize the Pakistani media about the new developments in Geneva. She organized a one-day closed-door briefing for senior Pakistani journalists. Over eight hours, participants were briefed about the new pressures on Pakistani diplomacy on the country’s nuclear program. The workshop covered Pakistan’s position on a new treaty, called FMCT, that would stop Islamabad from developing material needed to build nuclear weapons, a treaty that Islamabad is resisting for the time being. Participants also went through the evidence-based record of India in nuclear proliferation which belies Washington’s claims that India has a clean proliferation record.But Dr. Mazari is not alone. Ambassador Zamir Akram has told CD that Pakistan does not accept the US-led tilt in favor of India on nuclear technology.
US ‘wants to guard Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal
Pakistan’s military has angrily insisted that its nuclear weapons arsenal is safely protected and denounced claims that it is secretly negotiating with the United States to allow teams of American specialists to provide added security in the event of a crisis.
The Washington Post published revelations Wednesday, attributed to me, that top-level North Korean officials bribed Pakistani military officials with over $3 million in exchange for the nuclear technology.
A stunning report from the G8 Summit states that President Medvedev has been told that the American regime leader Barack Obama intends to unleash a “summer war” on Saudi Arabia to capture their oil fields and has ordered thousands more US Troops to the region to launch it. The Washington Post that suggested Riyadh was ready to go it alone because the United States had become an “unreliable partner.”
Saudi Arabia to split from Washington on some issues while questioning its longstanding reliance on the United States to protect its interests.
According to this report, Obama this past week ordered
his Defense Department to “pre-position” over 7,170 combat-hardened US Soldiers in southern Iraq to prepare for the invasion of Saudi Arabia in a blatant disregard of the American pledge to withdrawal all of their by January 2012.
So enraged were the Iraqi people when hearing of Obama’s betrayal that tens-of-thousands of them began a mass protest demanding the Americans leave, but was met with US commander Major General Jeffrey Buchanan slamming the protest march by calling this peaceful
protest “an affront to Iraq’s democracy.”
Even worse for the US, this report continues, was the powerful Iraqi cleric and militia leader Moqtada al-Sadr threatening to unleash his forces upon the Americans unless they begin leaving his country as soon as practical, but which with Obama’s planned new war against Saudi Arabia is now not going to happen.
Unnerving Obama, this report says, is the new Arab Alliance the Saudi’s are creating to make war against Iran, and which includes the largest Muslim nation in the world Indonesia, and America’s newest enemy Pakistan.
The new Arab Alliance, all Sunni Muslim ruled nations, being created by Saudi Arabia through their Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) launched their first attack against their Persian Shiite foes in Bahrain where Saudi and Pakistani troops unleashed one of the most brutal crackdowns ever seen in a region used to such actions, even to include the mass destruction of holy sites.
Saudi Arabia’s anger at Obama stems from the Americans refusal to support the deposed Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak who now languishes in prison with his two sons under threat of death by firing squad for his ordering the killing of unarmed protesters.
As we have reported on many times,the Americas have vowed to protect Iran ‘at all costs’ and since 2001 have fought two wars to defeat the Persian Shiite’s nations most feared opponents, the Bathist led Iraq and Taliban led Afghanistan.
Obama’s main strategy, this report continues, is to secure all of the Middle East’s vast oil reserves of which Saudi Arabia has the most of, but which are now threatened should the Saudi’s succeed in launching an attack on Iran with their GCC allies which would turn the whole Gulf region into an infernal of ‘unimaginable proportions’ and plunge the entire world into an economic depression the likes of which have never been seen.
Fueling Obama’s fears even more, this report further says, are that Pakistan’s nuclear weapons would be used in this conflict, and which the Americans have now lost their ability to monitor after being ordered out of the country as tensions between these two former allies escalate by the day.
Worse still for the Americans was the dashing of their hopes this past week for Brazil’s oil reserves (the largest oil find in three decades) after new estimates lowered this ‘black gold’ from over 15 billion barrels to as little few as 4.5 billion. Though the US has tried to secure a part of Brazil’s vast oil reserves through a $2 billion loan-guarantee, the Brazilians, to date, have not taken advantage it.
Important to note about Brazil, and as we had reported on in our report “World Begins Effort To Collapse US Dollar As Brazil Begins Nuclear Production And Ejects UN Inspectors”, is that because of its nuclear weapons the Americans can’t take their oil reserves by force as they have through their wars against Muslim nations.
To the American peoples ability to stop Obama’s new war against Saudi Arabia there appears to be no hope especially after his refusal yesterday to allow a truce in the illegal Libyan war he started over two months ago by lying to his own citizens saying it would only last “days, not weeks.”
Most ominous, for the American people at least, in this report further warning that the parallels between the United States today, and Nazi Germany of last century are becoming too similar to ignore, especially when viewed in the light that both of these nations wars were started because they lacked the oil resources to sustain their global economic and military might.
Evidence that America is fast falling into fascist tyranny could, literally, fill hundreds of volumes, and made even worse this after Obama followed Bush in allowing the unlimited powers of surveillance of US citizens and ordered his government lawyers to review all prayers said at the burial of US war veterans to make sure the name of Jesus was removed.
Perhaps even worse was the Obama regime this past week unveiling their plan to spend over $500 million on a programme designed to make 5-year-old children ‘sit still’ in kindergarten in blind obedience to their ‘masters’, a move eerily similar to Nazi Germany’s creation of the Hitler Youth designed to accomplish the same goal.
To what the Obama regime is doing to the American peasant class is even worse as new reports show them failing to stop the dispensing of a popular stop-smoking drug called Chantix that has resulted in hundreds of suicides psychotic reactions or stopping the ingestion into food and drink the dangerous chemical Aspartame that scientists warn is the cause of thousands of premature births and cancer deaths.
To the worse horrors to come, the American people remain blissfully ignorant, but one has no doubt that when these deluded people see that their “American Dream” is, in fact, an “American Nightmare”, the facing of their “new reality” will be more than they can bear. May God have mercy on them all.

In a telephone interview yesterday, Taliban spokesman Mullah Ehsanullah Ehsan rejected repeated concerns that his movement was a threat to Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal, saying they had no intention of attacking the weapons.The concerns are long-standing among US officials, and have only grown in the wake of the ease with which a handful of insurgents infiltrated the Karachi naval base. The US has suggested repeatedly that they were prepared to move against Pakistan’s arsenal to prevent it from being targeted by insurgents.
NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said he was confident that Pakistan’s nuclear weapons were safe; but in the same breath he remarked it was a matter of concern in the wake of the worst assault on Pakistan Navy’s airbase. There is inherent contradiction in NATO chief’s statement, because when he admits Pakistan’s nuclear weapons are safe and well-protected there is no reason or ground for expressing concern about them. What NATO chief has said is in fact reflective of a clearly-defined US policy, which is articulated by US Generals, think tanks, former members of US administration to prove that Pakistan government and the army cannot control the militants and terrorists who could lay their hands on nukes, which will be dangerous for the region and the world at large.
