Except that the Osama types won't do mass murder in a country that supports them 9 to 1 as far as popular support goes. But the nuke would be exploding near the GHQ and other Paki establishments that are taking on the 'Osama types', arresting their brethren, and killing innocent women, children and...

Your knowledge of India's contacts in the nuclear blackmarket and shadowy mass murdering groups on the fringes of Pakistani society exceeds mine It may not have been that obvious, but the question is one of deniability. If the logic that nukes came from North Korean sales and loose Russian ones is ...

what makes you think that blame will not be placed on evil terrorists buying weapons on the black market ? And it even might be so, with Pakistan merely providing the cash for the purchase and manpower for the attack. Exactly the same would hold true when a similar "terrorist nuke" explod...

Of course, but any state arming or supporting any such outfit always has deniability. Like Pakistan does. With all due respect how many people are going to buy such a denial? Israel also denies the existense of nuclear weapons on its soil but how many people in this world buy that? plausible deniab...

err non-state actors are not swyambu- self emergent. They are all products of states who train, nurture and sustain them. And there are other states that provide same services to those states. All I am saying is all those in the food/terror support chain are legitimate targets. Its only the degree ...

with non state actors deterence per se is no longer valid. they hold nothing dear so will see anything obliterated. therefore the only option is capability denial OR find their masters - against whom deterence may still be valid I couldnt possibly agree more. This is why US goes crazy when it comes...

Once again let me say it bluntly - if there is such a thing as a "Muslim world" that lumps all Muslims together and in agreement with each other and disagreement with everyone else - then clearly 85% of Indians are excluded from that world. Worse than excluded. Since most of these 85% of ...

Why exactly do u think we need to reduce our defense expenditure once there is a "democraticaly elected" government in pakistan. Is this based on the assumption that a so called stable pakistan with its rational leadership will stop the anti-YYY teachings in the madarsas? I dont understan...

Don't bring up UN votes. Israel has little or no respect for the UN



Would any rational non-Muslim country ever have any respect for the UN ?

I don't know, but I am willing to bet you want to argue it is the second. I would argue that any attack that involves a radioactive device is, in essence, a nuclear attack. as for smuggling by sea, or rann of kutch, i would think that you would need more than a posse of islamists to unload & tr...

Err, Where did Valkan say 3)? It will be an Indian response to break down of deterrence. The only corollary is due to the J18 hoopla PRC might not be so sure that its an Indian decision only. Hence it becomes a three power game. Quoting Valkan : And, just like Porkistani cities like Karachi burned ...

<massive jholawala comment snip> Hence it would seem plausible that a disillusioned member of the muslim community would seek to betray the country, smuggle in a nuke and blow half of Mumbai to smithereens. But really, that sounds like an episode of 24. Any bomb making materials that have been used...

You miss an important fact,- "plausible deniability" works both ways. If a nuke explodes in an Indian city, the source of the nuke would automatically be triangulated to the Porkistani GHQ at 'Pindi. And, just like Porkistani cities like Karachi burned in the 80s in response to Punjab bur...

But one thing is for sure, we won't touch Mecca under any realistic circumstances. This is precisely why you will almost certainly face a JDAM in the near future. In fact, when your last nuclear tests were conducted, CNN showed quite a few interviews with porki jehadis. Their rationale, the same as...

I think we need to maintain a decent aerial recon capability. How about Mig-31 ? Can it do the job if we require it ?

Of course, we could request US to sell us some mothballed SR-71's :)

Anyways, commies must be jumping with joy. India's defence to be weakened on Labour Day.
