    Asalaam-u-Alaikum,

    Nuclear weapons are a weapon of last resort. No one actually intends to use them. However if they are used, that means that you are in a no win situation and have no other options left. Yes millions of people would die in both Pakistan and India which would be herendous. However the other option is to cease to exist as a nation state. So if one is going to go, why not take the enemy with you.

    Regarding using nukes against US battle groups. As mentioned it will not have the same psychological impact or deterence as using nukes against Israel or India. However, it will have an impact nevertheless. Sure the US can retaliate with nukes but If God forbid we ever find ourselves in such a scenario of using nukes, we wont be fighting to win because there are no winners in a nuclear war. We would be taking the enemy down with us.

    Wasalaam
    Ali

    this is scary, so to these ppl, lives of atleast 1/2 a billion of ppl, mostly muslims is worth wasting if pakistan was attacked???????? nation is nothing but its ppl and what do these ppl think they are? god??? they think pakistan is worth killing all these lives??? i am sorry guys, i like pakistan as a country i was born in, but for the security of pakistan i would not even think such a horrible act. that is why allam iqbal once said...
    "in taza khudaon main bara sab say watan hai"
    "jo is ka parahn hai wo mazhab ka kafn hai"
    patriotism is fine,but these ppl in pakdef are nationlists and thats why i stopped going there, these thoughts sickened me.

    Nationalism is fine, it imbibes love for your country. But ultra nationalism is dangerous, it gives rise to fascism.
