Re: Pakistan Nuclear Proliferation - 20 Feb 2004

It was never Pakistan's fault you see: In 1990, the United States was compelled to stop the sale of F-16 planes to Pakistan because of its nuclear activities. Washington waged a campaign to get other nations not to sell anything that could deliver weapons, especially nuclear bombs. But according to ...

Re: Pakistan Nuclear Proliferation - 11 Feb 2004

I have heard Hamid Gul say more than once on Pakistani TV(paraphrasing) "Umrika under se khokhla ho chuka hai aur iskey dhanchey key ghirney mein der nahin " - in other words, Umrika has become hollow from inside and its collapse is not far off. This appears to be a view which has some currency amon...

Re: Pakistan Nuclear Proliferation - 07 Feb 2004

Just a couple of questions. 1. If Pakistan had really wanted to give nuclear technology to Muslim countries, why didn't it do so wholeheartedly, instead of being half-hearted and putting these countries through long development cycles? (Doesnot sound like ideological committment from either Pakistan...

Re: the press conference Mushy has a point.

Re: Pakistan Nuclear Proliferation - 31 Jan 2004

One fall guy doesnot a nukenood regime make. Nothing stops China from continuing to supply Pakistan with nukes on demand, esp when the US government and its obedient media have been so obliging as to provide 100% impervious cover. IMO, India should start making noises about the Chinese connection to...

Re: Pakistan Nuclear Proliferation - 25 Dec 2003

IMO, this episode may have taken away the "rhetorical" edge from US's use of sanctions as part of the missile-nuke control regime. Suppose, for example, India goes ahead with "bigger and better" missile development and US threatens to impose sanctions on India to restrain it. India can point out tha...

In my view, in common with people with sources in the Pakistani defence establishment like Mansoor Ijaz, the US has known all along what was going on. This pious outrage is purely made-on-order. India for example, never chose to rely on the US Congress/US President's views of Pakistan's nuclear weap...
