Default Pakistan with nukes..Yikes

Anybody here connected with the military know if we have moved to any type of alert now that Pakistan has gone into semi-meltdown mode?

I would certainly hope so......

I think the missiles that they have are short range with relatively low yield (if there is such a thing). The only threat that I see is one being stolen to be used on us at a later date. Scary stuff though. I bet our troops located in that vicinity are on pins and needles. That one situation could cause that whole area to melt real quick.

what worries me it not that they have missiles is that we do not have enough combat ready troops to respond if we had to

Their "melt down" involves internal power struggles for control of the country. I don't see them nuking themselves. Iran with nukes is infinitely more scary.

Ditto. But Jon Edwards said (in effect, on Meet the Press today) that this is not a real problem. Just more stuff Bush is making up so he can have another war.

They have nukes in order to defend themselves against India (primarily). Don't be surprised when articles are written this week about how the USA assisted them getting the nukes in the first place. As stated previously, their problems are internal.

Given all the fukk-ups in that region, if anyone has to have nukes, better the Pakis than anyone else...

Lot's of real Al-Queda and Taliban in Pakistan. If they "loose" any nukes, those guys will be first in line.

How about we ship several crates of war tested very short range, very high yield nukes along with instructions to the region. It would likely solve many problems and not cost us one life.
