The Altantic Monthly publishes a terrifyingly insightful article about Pakistan’s nuclear shell game. According to it, what keeps the Pakistani leaders up at night is a highly unlikely US air strike, not a predictable (by past incidents) Jihadi suicide rush on the Pakistani nuclear capabilities. To avoid the remote possibility of a US attack, Pakistanis keep moving their warheads around the country. To make triple sure that the US spies never know when and how this is happening, transportation is done by unmarked, ordinary vans with light protection. In doing so, the Pakistani leadership ignores the very real possibility that one of the many fundamentalist organizations that plague the largest and only Muslim nuclear power might get wind of such a foolish move and seize the opportunity and the quarry. In other words words:
[T]he Pakistani government is willing to make its nuclear weapons more vulnerable to theft by jihadists simply to hide them from the United States, the country that funds much of its military budget.
