What if the U.S. Actually Attempted to Seize Pakistan's Nukes?
By Russ Wellen, May 12, 2011
Yesterday I posted that Pakistani fear of the United States attempting to seize its nuclear-weapons arsenal is at an all-time high. As Yochi Dreazen wrote at the National Journal, "the ease with which elite U.S. forces jammed Pakistan's advanced air defense systems and mounted a precision operation deep inside Pakistani territory is eroding the Pakistani military's standing in the eyes of its own people and raising new questions there about whether the U.S. could one day mount a similar push to grab Pakistan's nuclear weapons."
As I mentioned, one obstacle to that course of action is thatThe West doesn't know all the locations of Iran's (however peaceful thus far) nuclear program, thus rendering preemptive bombing inevitably incomplete. Neither does the West know the location of all of Pakistan's nuclear weapons, thus making it impossible to take complete control of its program.I also cited an article I wrote for Asia Times Online in 2009 titled Keeping Pakistan's nukes extremist-free. I had contacted veteran British reporter Brian Coughley, South Asian defense analyst for Jane's, who also wrote War, Coups and Terror: Pakistan's Army in Years of Turmoil (Skyhorse Publishing, 2009). As recently as April of this year he wrote an article on Pakistan's nuclear security for Jane's Intelligence Review (requires paying a -- steep -- subscription fee). In my ATimes piece I wrote:Cloughley's extensive experience with the Pakistani military has left him with respect for its professionalism and much less concern for the security of its nuclear weapons than Washington expresses.Besides, British columnist Johann Hari wrote:Every time the US military has war-gamed sending in troops . . . it has ended in a horrific bloodbath -- and the weapons still eluding their control.Cloughley agreed.It would, indeed, be a bloodbath if any attempt were made to insert special forces. How anyone in their right mind could even suggest such a scenario is beyond me.Nevertheless, at my request, he provided one... [More @ FPIF]
In the Theater of the Absurd: US-NATO Support "Al Qaeda in Libya""We are fighting nothing other than al-Qaeda in what they call the Islamic Maghreb. It's an armed group that is fighting from Libya to Mauritania and through Algeria and Mali. If you had found them taking over American cities by the force of arms, tell me what you would do?" From a letter sent by the Libyan leader Muammar Qadhafi to the US president Barack Obama.In the Theatre of the Absurd, anything is possible. However, this latest scenario in Libya has taken absurdity to a whole new dimension.
A rag-tag bunch of armed, al-Qaeda affiliated tribesmen, being referred to as a 'pro-democracy movement' by British State TV (BBC) and other mainstream media outlets, are now being openly armed and trained by the French, British and American governments. This same Coalition of Crusaders, with the support of the Arab League, is fighting alongside the rebels, launching continual bombing raids on targets in Tripoli and beyond, including Muammar Qadhafi's compound, in a brazen attempt to assassinate the man and re-colonise Libya.
And what is the support inside Libya for this so-called 'Libyan pro-democracy movement'? The answer is less than 2% of the entire Libyan population... Full Article at Global Research (h/t: Times of India)
