Pakistan has become the fifth largest nuclear power

Pakistan has become the fifth largest nuclear powerPakistan is one of the most unstable countries on the planet, the most real "powder keg."

He just filled neuvvyazkami, any of which may lead to a terrible explosion — overcrowding, lack of agricultural land, unsullied aqua sources, unemployment, border conflict with India, the movement "Taliban" is in control of the country, adjacent to Afghanistan, the war rages, grow and extremist anti-Western sentiments (though Washington ally of the government of Islamabad).

And this country is rapidly increasing nuclear capability, becoming the fifth nuclear power, the number of nuclear warheads.

The nuclear arms race

Pakistan fast, almost a couple of years ahead of England and India, the number of nuclear warheads. Building a new nuclear complex Kushab, near the capital Islamabad. This is the 4th in the country complex for the production of weapons-grade plutonium.

Fourth reactor under construction at a distance of several hundred meters from the 2-other plutonium reactors operating at the heavy water. According to Albright (James Albright, director of the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security), a new nuclear facility will allow Islamabad to expand its own nuclear arsenal. In Pakistan Army has already deployed more than 100 warheads.

Pakistani elite to justify their passion nuclear weapons, The advantage of everyday Indian armed forces over Pakistan army. In India and Pakistan have severe unresolved territorial disputes have often leads to armed conflicts — 1947, 1965, 1971, 1999. This is a question about the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

It is impossible not to direct attention to the fact that Pakistan is not only increasing the number of warheads, and their technical properties.

There is a reasonable question, if the country is languishing socio-economic prepyadstviya, where did the money. Construction of nuclear facilities are very expensive toy for the country. The Indian public believes that the U.S. is behind this: the newspaper Times of India wrote that work in conjunction Kushab conducted on funds America in the form of aid. Practically "Pakistani nuclear programm has insurance in Washington."

WikiLeaks about Pakistan
Pakistan has become the fifth largest nuclear power

In WikiLeaks posted the documents were several exciting moments:

— Washington is dissatisfied, Islamabad's refusal to break off relations with terrorist organizations of Islamic sense (for example: Lashkar-e-Taiba), which are responsible for the attack on the Indian city of Mumbai in 2008;

— "Despite the economic catastrophe, Pakistan is producing nuclear weapon faster other countries of the world";

— U.S. feared coup in Pakistan, as for example: in 2009, one of the generals of the Pakistan Army Ashfaq Kayani wanted to shelve the President Asif Ali Zardari.

FAQ: Start of the nuclear programs from Pakistan refers to 1972, when the president Z. Bhutto signed the order for the development of the Ministry of Science and Technology and the expansion of the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). Most of the companies are built nuclear cycle using Western European, Canadian, American, and Chinese companies are not under IAEA safeguards. The plant in Kahuta (1982) has a capacity of more than 45 kg per year, the highest degree of enrichment of uranium. In 1986 he graduated from the design, construction and development of systems software and did the layout of a nuclear explosive device. In 1989 he began mass creation of nuclear weapons. According to various estimates, by 1998, Pakistan had up to 700 kg of weapons-grade uranium. Pakistan conducted six nuclear tests-Th, 28 and 30 May 1998 at the test site in the Chagai Hills of Baluchistan and so Makarov entered the nuclear club.

Was created as a missile power of Islamabad
Pakistan has become the fifth largest nuclear power

Its missile program from Pakistan is implementing since the early 80s., On the basis of both foreign and own developments. With all of this country's leaders considered it necessary to the creation of a "small deterrent" in the amount of 40-50 warheads. The idea was, that in the two years to go from a nuclear device exploded in May 1998, before the warheads designed for delivery to the target by means of ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and aircraft.

April 6, 1998 Pakistan announced a mobile liquid-propellant missile tests "Ghauri-1" ("Ghauri"). The rocket weighs 16 tons and is capable of delivering a payload of 700 kg to a distance of 1,500 km. Given range assessments are independent professionals "Ghauri-1" is about 700 km. According to U.S. sources, the missile is based on the technology of the DPRK and is a modernized version of the missile "Nodong". Part professionals implies that rocket was fully acquired by the DPRK. The representatives of Pakistan denies this and says that "Ghauri-1" is a completely state development.

April 14, 1999 Pakistan carried out another test of fuel oil mobile medium-range missile "Ghauri-2." This missile is capable of carrying nuclear ammunition at a distance of about 1100 km. According to some reports, the range of "Ghauri-2" can be increased to 2300 km.

April 13, 1998 Pakistan carried out a test of the RNC, "Shaheen-1". Initially it was assumed that the missile will equip oneself to non-nuclear munitions. Range missiles is estimated at 600-750 km.

Advances in the development of Pakistan's medium-range missiles is largely based on cooperation with other countries, first of China and North Korea.

At the current time, Pakistan has as nuclear bombs (South American carriers F-16 cruise missiles (like "Hatf-VII Babur"), a short-range ballistic missiles (such as "Hatf-I», «Shaheen-I»), ballistic missiles with range (such as "Gauri" and "Shaheen," which can carry a nuclear warhead. Nuclear Forces Pakistan pays a lot of attention is constantly increasing the number of warheads, the number of carriers conducting tests of new ballistic and cruise missiles.

Taking into account the languid political situation in Pakistan, the rise of Islamic constructive underground — this fact is a great danger not only of India, and throughout the region.
