Pakistani N-warheads zapping around the highways and byways? Who comes up with this stuff? Atlantic Magazine has a a video interview http://t.co/GfdrvoZV where a gentleman says that to keep the US from seizing its N-warheads the Pakistanis are moving them around on the road. To avoid drawing attention, they are using ordinary trucks without protection. Big danger, says this person, because if AQ could get a hold of a schedule, they could seize a truck.
This is good and right kind of questions
The entire senario is for creating the image of 'nuclear Flashpoint' which they want to create into a real picture with this kind of news
In fact the news of unprotected warhead moving around may well be correct. That is the only way to move them. But releasing the news is to tell Pakis "We are watching unprotected transport as well - so be careful when you move them next"
But why has everyone missed (or failed to mention) a significant bit of info from that Atlantic article. Why has that been mentioned at all? Does anyone know what I am talking about?
Will come back on this later...
