In Fear Of US Seals Pakistan Has Started Dispersing Its Nuclear Weapons

Pakistan in its latest effort to cock a snoot at USA has started moving its nuclear weapons to new locations in un-armed normal vans through congested and risky roads. This was done to evade the US spy agencies and their ever present eyes.

The Atlantic and National Journal, in a joint report citing unnamed sources, wrote that the U.S. raid on May 2 that killed al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden at his Pakistani compound reinforced Islamabad's longstanding fears that Washington could try to dismantle the country's nuclear arsenal.

This prompted the Pakistani Government to order Strategic Plans Division(SPD) to move its nuclear arsenal to locations hidden from the US.Khalid Kidwai who leads the SPD has used every bit of his agencies resources to do so as fast as possible.Unfortunately in his haste and the pressure to keep his movements hidden, Kidwai decided to take these weapons on delivery van through congested and dangerous roads. We must remember each of these weapons are capable of annihilating a large part of any city. The pace of the dispersal movements has increased, raising concerns at the Pentagon, it said.

U.S. Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) has for years trained for a potential "disablement campaign" that its forces would lead and that would require entering more than a dozen nuclear sites and seizing or defusing atomic weapons, it said.

The operation would use sensitive radiological detection devices that can pick up trace amounts of atomic material, and JSOC has even built mock Pashtun villages with hidden mock nuclear-storage depots at a site on the East Coast to train elite Navy SEAL and Delta Force commandos, the report said.

Although Pakistan has suggested it might shift towards China and forsake its ties to Washington, Chinese officials have reached an understanding in secret talks with U.S. representatives that Beijing would raise no objections if the United States opted to secure Pakistan's nuclear weapons, said the report, citing unnamed U.S. sources.
