Pakistan accelerates its nuclear weapons program

Absolutely nothing good can come out of this. Muslims in Pakistan (or anywhere else) need plutonium like a drug addict needs another fix.

Pakistan builds plutonium reactor

Plant could supply material for 40-50 nuclear bombs a year

Pakistan has begun building what independent analysts say is a powerful new reactor for producing plutonium, a move that, if verified, would signal a major expansion of the country's nuclear weapons capabilities and a potential new escalation in the region's arms race.

Satellite photos of Pakistan's Khushab nuclear site show what appears to be a partially completed heavy-water reactor capable of producing enough plutonium for 40 to 50 nuclear weapons a year, a 20-fold increase from Pakistan's current capabilities, according to a technical assessment by Washington-based nuclear experts.
This development portends nothing good for South Asia, for infidels, or for the world.

One could make a very strong argument that Pakistan, a borderline failed state, is itself a greater threat to world peace than even the Criminal State of North Korea. Pakistan is a nuclear-armed dictatorship with a significant minority of its population, likely a majority, that actively supports the Global Jihad. Its government intelligence services have been directly implicated in countless jihadist plots, including the recent Mumbai train bombings that killed over 180 people.

The Taliban is a Pakistani invention and export that even now continues its bloody jihad against American and NATO troops in Afghanistan. Numerous terrorist groups are based on Pakistani soil and enjoy safe harbor there, including Al Qaeda and Lashkar-e-Taiba. The Paki government is either unable or (more likely) unwilling to remove these groups and the many others in their country that share the same murderous theology and objectives.

Pakistan's exports of Jihadists, Jihadist ideology and indoctrination, and missile and nuclear technology is a toxic brew, indeed. It is a threat that can only worsen in the years to come.

Well said, AJ!

40-50 nuclear bombs a year? That ought to annihilate Western civilization.

"40-50 bombs a year? that ought to annihilate the west" indeed AOW, however as soon as the first is launched, we'll retailiate and enter a state of mutually assured distruction.

It makes me feel warm in my heart to know we are giving BILLIONS in humanitarian and DEFENSE $$$$$$ to Pakistan. It's only fair we should arm all of our enemies to destroy us.

Lenin famously, supposedly said, "The West shall sell us the rope that we will hang them with", or words to that effect.

Think that's happening now?

Oh, s--t! Why are Our Leaders such slow learners? Can't they READ? Or look around? Or understand patterns of behavior, or hot spots on a world map?


An another thing; if, when the inevitable happens to us, and it is found to have been accomplished by terrorists coming across all those miles upon miles of open borders, at whom should we wag our fingers?
