- Terror News Analysis -
New York, with inputs from our Washington Bureau:
Now that the CIA has disclosed the links between the Al Qaida and the ISI in fomenting terrorism in Kashmir the next logical step should be for the US to declare the ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence) to be a Terrorist Organisation and ask the Govt of Pakistan to formally ban it and work towards disbanding it. In the coming days the ISI is going to represent the most manifest threat for spiriting away Pakistan's nuclear assets into Jihadi hands.
With the global media crowing all around with the story that the US and Israel are going to launch commando operations to seize Pakistan's Nuclear assets the precious element of surprise is now lost
The US should move fast on this and send in Cruise and Tomahawk missiles to destroy Pakistan's nuclear assets. The element of surprise is now no longer there with the global media crowing all around with the story that the US and Israel are going to launch commando operations to seize Pakistan's Nuclear assets. Now commandos will perhaps never be able to reach the target. Now only a sort of scorched-earth policy will have to be implemented immediately by sending in ICBMs to destroy Pakistan's nuclear arsenal and delivery systems where it stands. If the US dilly-dallies on this it would be asking for nuclear apocalypse.
With the Soviet Union vis-a-vis the United States, the deterrence of MAD, but now the situation is Qualitatively more Dangerous
For this it would be a test of endurance for president Musharraf to acquiesce to this American initiative. But there is no option, but to go ahead - with or without the President's acquiescence. The other alternative is a nuclear apocalypse that would make 11th of September seem like a mild event.
The theory of MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) no longer holds with the Jihadis. With the Soviet Union via-a-vis the United States, the deterrence of MAD was fine enough to result in a Cold War. But when even a part of Pakistan's nuclear arsenal falls into the hands of the Jihadis, they can be expected to be prompt to send the warheads across to the US or wherever they can reach.
If the US is waiting for the destruction of the entire Lower Manhattan through the medium of an Islamic Atom bomb from Pakistan's Nuclear arsenal, then this is culpable callousness
We do not want to sound crude, but if the US is waiting for the destruction of the entire Lower Manhattan through the medium of an Islamic Atom bomb from Pakistan's Nuclear arsenal, then this is culpable callousness. The Jihadis and the Soviets are two different categories altogether. For all the evil that communism represented in American eyes, the Jihadis are the Real Devils. With nuclear horns, they can be sure to lose no time to strike. We are at the eleventh hour and midnight is around the corner, if the US bides precious time, running out fast. We know, we sound alarmist, but the US has to move in now and disable Pakistan's nuclear arsenal and delivery systems as and where it stands.
