Pakistan hardly has any nuclear weaponry if they detonate any they will probally just put it in a truck and drive it to the center of their country and go boom...

i dont care either way , it doesnt affect my life so why do i care , theyve been at near war for 50 years , its enevitable that it would come to this . maybe once it happens they'll learn a lesson from it , just as was learned from hiroshima , and then perhaps some common sense can seep back in .

Ignorance and arrogance.. damn your 2 for 1. Maybe you should read up on U.S. relations and Foreign affairs because if Pakistan and India get into a Nuclear War you can most definitely bet that the U.S. will end up involved.

well thats just as well , bc i live in canada .jk

 

its not that im ignorant or arrogant . its more that in the 50 years theyve been fighting , neither of them has had the common sense to just let it go , and nothing the us , or the un has done has helped anything , maybe a nuclear war would make them realize the error of their ways .

With more than a million troops poised along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir, India and Pakistan stand on the brink of a war which could quickly escalate into a nuclear conflict.

 

The scale of the Indian mobilisation is meant to serve two main purposes.

 

http://news.bbc.co.uk/media/images/38038000/gif/_38038655_india_pakistan150.gif'>

 

 

India:

 

Agni II intermediate-range missile

 

Tested 1999

 

200 kiloton nuclear warhead

Pakistan:

 

 

Shaheen II intermediate-range missile

 

Tested 1999

 

35 kiloton nuclear warhead

South Asia's nuclear stakes

 

 

The first is to exert maximum pressure on Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf to crack down on Kashmiri militants, in the process aligning India's war against Kashmiri insurgency with the wider US-led "war on terrorism".

 

The second aim is to challenge in a decisive way Pakistan's deterrence calculations.

 

Since the Kargil crisis of 1999 in which more than 1,000 troops, including many Pakistani regulars, crossed into Indian-controlled Jammu and Kashmir, India has argued that Pakistan has been willing to escalate low-level military operations across the Line of Control, confident that its nuclear weapons will deter India from a substantial military response.

 

It is in part in order to disabuse Pakistan of this belief that India is now in the final stages of building up conventional forces for the "decisive victory" of which Indian Prime Minister Vajpayee recently spoke.

 

This is also the main reason why it is going to be extremely difficult for India to turn away from its present course.

Catalysts

 

In February of this year, General Khalid Kidwai, Chief of Pakistan's Strategic Plans Division tasked with the control of nuclear weapons, outlined four scenarios which would imperil the nation and could therefore lead to the use of nuclear weapons by Pakistan:

 

 

India conquering a large part of Pakistan's territory (including Azad (free) Kashmir)

 

India destroying a large part of Pakistan's armed forces

 

India pushing Pakistan into political destabilisation

 

India strangling Pakistan economically.

It is entirely possible that a major military move by India across the Line of Control could quickly lead to the first three of these scenarios, any one of which could trigger nuclear war.

 

Even allowing that Pakistan, in the final analysis, would not use nuclear weapons as a deliberate instrument of policy, there are still at least three other routes to nuclear war - in descending order of probability - which arise because the systems to assure the safety, security and control of nuclear weapons in the context of an ongoing conflict are not yet fully in place.

 

The first is that the control of one or more nuclear weapons may be delegated to a regional commander whose forces then become subject to conventional attack or to misperception.

 

Such a commander, under time pressure and fearing the loss of his nuclear weapons, may decide to use them without high-level authority rather than risk them being captured or destroyed.

 

It is worth noting that there are reliable reports of both India and Pakistan training for conventional air strikes and commando raids against the nuclear weapons sites of the other.

 

 

Weapons held by India and Pakistan could create many new Hiroshimas

 

 

The second is that nuclear weapons may fall into the hands of one or a group of unstable military (or conceivably non-military) personnel who may use the weapon(s) for motives of religious fervour or as a result of psychological, drug, or other problems.

 

The third is that nuclear weapons may be dropped or launched by accident as a result of technical or human error.

 

It is impossible to quantify these risks, but past evidence within and outside the region suggests all scenarios are entirely possible.

 

Constant communication

 

This does not mean that nuclear war is consequently inevitable.

 

It is often overlooked that India and Pakistan have a track record of managing potentially nuclear crises - Brasstacks in 1986-7; Zarb-i-Momin in 1990 and Kargil in 1999 - and that they have in place a number of arms control measures to stabilise nuclear competition.

 

Both sides have also been able to learn from the Cold War experience, and have highly disciplined and well-trained military personnel in nuclear weapons roles.

 

Moreover, considerable bilateral dialogue at many levels continues behind the scenes even at the height of rhetorical hostility.

 

Much has been made of the absence of a "hotline" allowing General Musharraf and Prime Minister Vajpayee to communicate directly.

 

In fact, bilateral communications of this kind are readily available and were indeed used during the 1999 Kargil crisis when Mr Vajpayee spoke with Narwaz Sharif, then Pakistan's leader.

 

That said, the present crisis is undoubtedly the most serious the two nations have faced since the 1971 war and even with major international diplomatic input it will still be extremely difficult to find a face-saving formula to allow the protagonists to disengage.

 

If war does break out, the possibility of nuclear escalation puts millions of lives at risk and perhaps even the existence of the states themselves.

 

That dreadful prospect may yet be enough to forestall a war and persuade Indian and Pakistan to find better ways to tackle their differences - much as the United States and Soviet Union were forced to do in the aftermath of the 1962 Cuban missile crisis.

it takes about 200 wats of raditation to kill a person I think? anyway the groundzero radiation of a nuclear bomb is 9000+ I think?..anyway yes it will travel and probally if it did happen would kill 90 million + people because india is so populated...

for a 1 megaton Surface explosion , on land . the concussive pressure of the blast would kill ppl 16 miles away in every direction .

^^^^^ i watched some thing on the discoverey channel and it said that from 13 miles away a nuclear bomb will suck the air out of your lungs not kill you. I dunno, havent seen a nuclear explosion in a while.

thats when the explosion begins it sucks the air forward to the base then straight up than out, than your fucked....either way if its a windy day and it blew up that radius of 200 miles could turn into 300..

does that sound like a safe distance to

be from a nuclear detonation?

I'd rather be 5 miles away than 150, and having my skin melt off like pizza cheese from the raditation very slowly, and my eyeballs turning into eggyokes slowly, yea I'll take a shockwave blast over radiation...
