    Biological Attack expected by 2013. Pakistan was the one country singled out.



    Will it bring an end to humanity? A Massive nuclear and / or biological attack. Pakistan was the one country singled out in the report by the Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism,due to their vast history of instability as well as their huge network of various terror groups.

    The Associated Press: Panel warns biological attack likely by 2013

    Biological Attack expected by 2013

    By PAMELA HESS 7 hours ago

    WASHINGTON (AP) The United States can expect a terrorist attack using nuclear or more likely biological weapons before 2013, reports a bipartisan commission in a study being briefed Tuesday to Vice President-elect Joe Biden. It suggests the Obama administration bolster efforts to counter and prepare for germ warfare by terrorists.

    "Our margin of safety is shrinking, not growing," states the report, obtained by The Associated Press. It is scheduled to be publicly released Wednesday.
    The commission is also encouraging the new White House to appoint one official on the National Security Council to exclusively coordinate U.S. intelligence and foreign policy on combating the spread of nuclear and biological weapons.


    The report of the Commission on the Prevention of WMD Proliferation and Terrorism, led by former Sens. Bob Graham of Florida and Jim Talent of Missouri, acknowledges that terrorist groups still lack the needed scientific and technical ability to make weapons out of pathogens or nuclear bombs. But it warns that gap can be easily overcome, if terrorists find scientists willing to share or sell their know-how.
    "The United States should be less concerned that terrorists will become biologists and far more concerned that biologists will become terrorists," the report states.


    The commission believes biological weapons are more likely to be obtained and used before nuclear or radioactive weapons because nuclear facilities are more carefully guarded. Civilian laboratories with potentially dangerous pathogens abound, however, and could easily be compromised.
    "The biological threat is greater than the nuclear; the acquisition of deadly pathogens, and their weaponization and dissemination in aerosol form, would entail fewer technical hurdles than the theft or production of weapons-grade uranium or plutonium and its assembly into an improvised nuclear device," states the report.


    It notes that the U.S. government's counterproliferation activities have been geared toward preventing nuclear terrorism. The commission recommends the prevention of biological terrorism be made a higher priority.
    Study chairman Graham said anthrax remains the most likely biological weapon. However, he told the AP that contagious diseases like the flu strain that killed 40 million at the beginning of the 20th century are looming threats. That virus has been recreated in scientific labs, and there remains no inoculation to protect against it if is stolen and released.
    Graham said the threat of a terrorist attack using nuclear or biological weapons is growing "not because we have not done positive things but because adversaries are moving at an even faster pace to increase their access" to those materials.
    He noted last week's rampage by a small group of gunmen in Mumbai.
    "If those people had had access to a biological or nuclear weapon they would have multiplied by orders of magnitude the deaths they could have inflicted," he said.


    Al-Qaida remains the only terrorist group judged to be actively intent on conducting a nuclear attack against the United States, the report notes. It is not yet capable of building such a weapon and has yet to obtain one. But that could change if a nuclear weapons engineer or scientist were recruited to al-Qaida's cause, the report warns.


    The report says the potential nexus of terrorism, nuclear and biological weapons is especially acute in Pakistan.
    "Were one to map terrorism and weapons of mass destruction today, all roads would intersect in Pakistan," the report states.


    In fact, commission members were forced to cancel their trip to Pakistan this fall. The Islamabad Marriott Hotel that commission members were to stay in was blown up by terrorist bombs just hours before they were to check in.
    "We think time is not our ally. The (United States) needs to move with a sense of urgency," Graham said.

      Isnt it surprising that the report was released when fingers are being pointed at Pakistan. Is there a plan to attac Pakistan by US. Why is JOhn McCain and Condoleeza Rice visiting India?

          What will Zardari do if US attacks Pakistan? Will China defend Pakistan? Is Zardari the Hamid Karzai of Pakistan?

            Instead of focusing on changes to facial features you should work little harder to get the point.

                China is nobody's friend, those people only manipulate and derive fruits from others' situation. If Pakistan thinks China is their friend they are terribly mistaken.

                  In politics there is no permanent friend nor enemy. Clinton was Obama's enemy and now part of his cabinet. China will do what it benefits them. China will support Pakistan as it does not want a powerful India as a neighbor.

                    The fact that Indians, who btw got a phenti from the chinese in 1962 keep trying to remind us china isnt our friend, is proof enough, that the chinese are infact our friends.

                      Add "by the US Government" to the title of the thread.

                            Pakistan an improverished and unstable nuclear-armed country. They have already shared WMD secrets with dangerous elements. There is a huge fundamentalist movemement funded by radical Islam. Armed Islamic fundamentalist groups, including al qaeda, operate within its territory. They have a long history of conflict and animosity with their nuclear armed neighbor. Their intelligence agency has terrorist ties. They can't control terrorists in and out of their borders. Their army cannot (or will not) fight extremists effectively.

                            Do we really need a panel of experts to tell us that Pakistan's WMD may present a danger to the world?

                              Yes you are right our Army cannot control terrorist in and out, but your Army and Commando's can control two young boys in Taj Mahal, Two boys at Station and Two boys at obroy Hotel very well in 60 hours, shame on your commando's and Army and Navy. According to your expert security they came all the way from Karachi and your intelligence services had no idea they are terrorist?

                              Do you really believe that bull****, sadly all the mahem been caused by only 10 young boys? Came by boat, india have massive radar system, big coastal line and lots of activities happening on that coastal line. They had to travel 500 notical miles, and pass through 21 circle radars. Do your research and you will know what is truth. I think you should ask this question from your security services. How on earth they pass through so much security, it takes about 50 hours to get from Karachi to Mumbai, no one intercepted them within 50 hours travelling. Do you really buy that? or there is something fishy there?

                              How on earth so much damage is been done by two boys in Taj Mahal. My brain doesnt accept that. Either there were a lot more then 2 boys. If they was then they can't travel by small boat. And it will be a lot more difficult to prove that they was foriegners for your Intelligent services.

                              They are not only making you fool, but trying to make whole world fool, but I hope truth will come out one day, same as Samjotha train. Please refrain from pointing fingers at other, when you know, you need to look inside yourself first.
