    The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Inter Service Public Relations (ISPR) have maintained a steady silence so as not to disturb the Thimpu Spirit as India readies itself by putting in place its missile defence shield.

    None of the political parties which are seen advocating peace with New Delhi appears least bothered in the future of the continuing strategic instability that India is continuously creating with its expansionist defence policies.

    Dr. Shireen Mazari, chief executive officer of Strategic Technology Resource (STR) and central vice president of Pakistan Tehreek Insaf, tells ‘The News’ that the readying of the Indian missile defence shield has been a part of India’s ABM-BMD (Ballistic Missile Defence) programme and will certainly undermine the prevailing strategic stability in the region not only vis a vis Pakistan but also in relation to China.

    “One needs to recall that India was the first country to welcome the US missile defence programme and since Bill Clinton’s visit to India and the ensuing Vision Document that laid the foundations of the new Indo-US strategic partnership, there has been extensive military cooperation between the two countries. This cooperation has included transfer of military technology and missile development”, she explains.

    For Pakistan, says Mazari, this new development implies a push towards more numbers in terms of its medium and intermediate range missiles until such time as we can develop our own limited anti-ballistic missile system (ABM). But that would lead to a new arms race in the region.[​IMG]

    “If India deploys its missile defence shield then it implies that India seeks to move out of the deterrence mode into a war fighting mode in terms of the use of nuclear weapons - that one can actually use nuclear weapons in war and prevail militarily. This is highly dangerous especially in the Pak-India context”, she adds.:laugh:

    It would be far wiser and economically more sensible for both Pakistan and India to move towards signing a strategic agreement limiting ABM deployments or, even better, renouncing missile defence altogether — the MAD doctrine that accepts non-use of nuclear weapons for war fighting.

    Hahaha. This is what India seeks. Pakistan spend more money on increasing numbers of missiles, ABM if it can. It really is good for us. How is deploying ABM an aggressive war fighting shift i dont know. All we are doing is saving our cities from rogues in Pak.

    ABM was junked by Bush. Its the bone of contention between Russia and the US especially US deployment in Europe.

    If by setting up a shield we upset any perverted country's stability, so be it. If it means war, so be it.

    Pakistan wants India to not have a shield so that its rogue PA can threaten India and in fact use WMDs against India. With a credible ABM, Pakistan will not be able to do that and it gives India quite a bit of security.

    Most importantly, it raises the costs for Pakistan to wage war against India. It has to up its missile fleet and with that its support costs, with that the number of nukes in its arsenal and it support costs. Basically ABM can completely bankrupt Pakistan if its not already. I mean even with aid and begging money, it will not be able to compete with India.

    Flip side is that it will increase terror network and support to them.

    Final solution, as i always say, break up of Pakistan and confine Pak to Punjab area.

    Hmmm a terrorist state is expecting an ABM treaty with us to hide its own impotency, i can't expect better than this from Pakistan. Only a fool will accept that proposal :crazy:

    Does anyone see the "akad" of the pakis come down these days? They ask for a Siachen withdrawal, they ask for ABM, they ask for better ties, they ask for troop reduction, they ask for access to Indian markets.

    Some good coffee they are smelling.

    we have limited BMD for two cities, if pak continue to build more missiles we will be forced to have bmd for whole of India. BTW how is defensive capabilities are offensive to others, they should look at China, it has S 300 and others and we are not saying any thing, we just tested A5 for them.
    We can accept that we will let Pakistan blackmail us with nuke & terrorists. They have to be paid back if they act stupidtly.

    Pak will get bmd from China or they can make it themselves, after all they are much ahead in missiles. Long live China-Pakistan friendship as happen in 1971.

    Saya, India is not going to limit BMD to just two cities. All major cities will be covered in phases.

    I don't see china providing BMD to Pak before it itself secured all it's cities with BMD. Till then India should rapidly modernize and expand its military to match China. That itself will make sure Pakis try to match us and go bust.
