    Pakistan is better eqipped than India - "American"magazine

    Pakistan is better equipped to put nuclear warheads on missiles and launch them than India, an American expert on south Asia, who recently wrote a book on India's nuclear bomb, says. "Pakistan today has a better capacity to put nuclear warheads and launch them," George Perkovich, says in an interview to be published in the upcoming edition of "American" magazine.

    "Pakistan has two competing missile programmes which wasn't known until recently. The AQ Khan labs have the Ghauri missile assisted by North Korea. The Pakistan atomic energy organisation has missiles too assisted by China. "They're racing against each other for money and prestige, for the title of great providers of Pakistan's strategic might," he says.

    He brands the nuclear scientists in Pakistan, especially Abdul Qadir Khan, are out of control but in India, they are "much more sober". He describes Khan, whom Pakistan calls the father of its bomb, a "mad scientist" who makes "outrageous statements."

    "He is doing business with North Korea, procuring missiles. He's a bad dude. One of the key questions for Pervez Musharraf is whether he can rein this guy in," Perkovich says. In India, he says, "you've got much more sober scientists but the government is struggling to figure out how put limits on these guys. They're national heroes."

    After all AQ Khan migrated to Pak from central India. He's not one of those pashtun or mujahid gorillas.

    He's got the inherent Indian brains and the acquired Mujahid madness.

      How does Mr Perkovich knows that Pakistan is better equipped than India. Has he visited Pak's nuclear installations? Answer the question! Otherwise you & Mr. Perkovitch are considered atomic spies and will be executed without trial.

      Damn! Our prime ministers and the members of all parliaments including all ministers don't know how the atomic bombs look like, thier numbers or installation. LOL

          Mohabbat normally is a great cut and paste operator but it seems as far as this post was concerned he edited the parts he didn't like. For example the article also said the following:

          India wants to be seen as an emerging power, like China. It diminishes India's sense of self regard to be equated with small Pakistan. There's real resistance to US officials who say "You really have to work on this relationship with Pakistan". The Indians say " Why do you always equate us with Pakistan? Don't you realize we 're vastly superior to Pakistan?" The Americans who know this say "This is nuts. You just lost hundreds of men to Pakistan in Kargil. Pakistan has nuclear weapons, and they are aimed at you."

          Another quote from the article:

          The yield of the 1974 tests was much lower than India claimed, so 1998 must have been lower, because India used 1974 as a benchmark.

            well pakistan is better than india...how does that guy know?
            If USA says we got our missiles from koreans...how TRUE is that?

            China as you know 3rd or 2nd world power and USA fears CHINa and it needs an enemy of china which is INDIA to keep it busy in the case of war!!! China as ally of pakistan needs pakistan to keep india busy in the case of war with USA! its a whole blender of countries..MAYBE im confusing you guys anyways think about it...

              So what are you trying to prove? That Pakistan can nuke India and get Kashmir? That Pakistan is now a great power? You guys will clutch at any straws in the media to keep your morale up. But that's only natural for a country which never one a war..

                Agni if you read my post you will realise what the point was rather than making silly remarks. As for winning wars remember 1962 when you people faced a bigger force than your selves. Well didn't do at all well did you?

                  Sorry ab that remark Ehsan. Didn't intend to hurt Pakistani's pride. Just touching upon human psychology. True we lost a war with China, but we aren't itching to get even with them. Bygones be bygones. On that note why can't Pakistan console itself that it lost the wars simply because it was dwarfed by the size and might of the Indian forces? That is plain and simple. And going further, another war would have pretty much the same outcome (Kargil for ex.).
                  So why not give up the entire useless exercise on Kashmir. Even the most diehard optimist in Pakistan wopuld admit that no one in the world really cares about Pakistan's case on Kashmir. There aren't many options, are there?

                    It is not a case of you people itching to get even with China, it is more of whether you will be able to survive as a nation if you try to get even with China. Don't delude yourself with fanciful ideas. As to Kashmir, you are the ones who should give up the useless use of force and give the Kashmiris what they want in order that the world could be rid of the biggest state sponsored terrorist activity in the world currently. Well your opinion is also not being bought by many countries in the world, ala the recent hijacking when all the 1 billion were running around the world trying to get Pakistan declared a terrorist state and the world told you lot to get LOST.

                      What you are saying in effect is that India cannot afford to have a war with China but Pakistan can afford to have a war with India (presumably to get even). No fanciful ideas here, at least not mine.

                      Regarding world opinion on the hijacking incident, if you have been following the news closely you will learn that US is refraining from declaring Pakistan a terrorist state noty because it does not believe India, but because that would further isolate Pakistan and in effect aggravate the problems in South Asia. Also the fact that Pakistan is a nuclear weapons state has weighed in.

                        I am just talking about China and India, it is you who are bringing Pakistan into it. As for hijacking your assertion that US has accepted your version is because maybe you have been closely watching your hysterical media. Look at the world media and you would soon realise that this is not the case.

                          I am indeed quoting international media. Or I wont be referring to it purely on the basis of Indian press reports. I dont keep track of the web links where I read it. A word about Indian media : granted they do get hysterical about Pakistan, but they sure are objective when it comes to assessing international reactions to events concerning India.
