US warns Pakistan on nuclear weapons

Don't you start this shit too.

The United States has urged Pakistan not to expand its nuclear weapons programme, after a think tank claimed Islamabad was building a nuclear reactor able to fuel up to 50 atomic bombs a year.

So this is fun, trying to guess which country will be responsible for the end of civilization as we know it. My money's riding on Ireland. (No one suspects them)

Pakistan's foreign ministry said it opposed a regional nuclear weapons arms race, but declined to deny a report by the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security that claimed Islamabad was expanding its atomic arms capabilities.


The report's release comes amid lingering US concern over Pakistan's nuclear programme.

Lingering concern? So we have a concern that just won't go away about Pakistan, home now of al-qaeda, the Taliban and, oh I don't know, maybe about a hundred fucking different groups of terrorists that never got over that excitement as children of blowing things up getting their hands on nuclear weapons. Yea, that's a little concern of mine too.

The institute said satellite pictures of Pakistan's Khushab atomic site, about 105 miles south-west of the capital, Islamabad, indicated what appeared to be construction of a reactor capable of producing enough plutonium for between 40 and 50 nuclear weapons a year.

Either that or it's a smudge on the lense.
What does a country need with 50 nuclear weapons a year? We've got more than anyone and we've only used two of 'em EVER. And they're not cheap. My advice? Build two or three and if you use them, then you make a few more.
