    LONDON: US troops will be deployed in Pakistan if the nation's nuclear installations come under threat from terrorists out to avenge the killing of Osama bin Laden, the Sunday Express can reveal on Sunday.

    The plan, which would be activated without President Asif Ali Zardari's consent, provoked an angry reaction from Pakistan officials last night. Barack Obama would order troops to parachute in to protect key nuclear missile sites. These include the air force's central Sargodha HQ, home base for nuclear-capable F-16 combat aircraft and at least 80 ballistic missiles.

    A US source told the Sunday Express: "The plan is green lit and the president has already shown he is wiling to deploy troops in Pakistan if he feels it is important for national security." However, news of the plan has further increased tension between the US and Pakistan with relations already at an all-time low after the Operation Geronimo raid by the US Navy Seal special forces team that killed bin Laden at the house where he had been hiding in Abbottabad, near to a Pakistan military academy.

    An angry Pakistani official said: "Pakistan has an elaborate command and control structure and is fully capable of defending its strategic assets under any circumstances and does not need any assistance from any country, including the US, to safeguard its nuclear installations."

    The plan reflects growing concern over reprisals for the al-Qaeda terror leader's death. More than 80 people were killed and 140 injured when two Taliban suicide bombers struck at a military academy in the north-western town of Charsadda on Friday.

    Alex Neill, of the Royal United Services Institute, said: "The United States places its own national security issues above all other sovereignty issues and trust in Pakistan's abilities are extremely low."

    "If Obama can persuade congress that placing US troops at the installations is necessary to protect US citizens from possible nuclear attack, then that's what he will do." The Pentagon on Saturday refused to deny the existence of the plan, with a spokesman saying only: "We are confident that Pakistan has taken appropriate steps towards securing its nuclear arsenal."

    This is already being declared as a myth and propaganda of US you-know-where. So far, everything the US has announced and Pakistan has denied, has all come true. Now the only worry is, what will our dummies in the GOI do--because we're the first target for these loonies if they get their hands on nuclear weapons.

    USA allowed the Pak-China nuclear deal to go thru and is allowing China to help Pakistan go to plutonium based nuclear weapons, why would they do this if they were the least bit concerned about pak's nuclear weapons???

    Its the stick from the US trying to make the pakistani administration work to their wishes.

    Pakistan can choose to hide the talibs or give up its nuclear weapons, a good move.

    Is it working when it took 10 years to give up Osama Bin Laden?? And when USA is probably thinking about making their exit from Afghanistan??

    USA never pursued AQ Khan for this nuclear proliferation network so this should give a clue about USA's view toward Pakistan's nuclear program. USA may want Pakistan to be nuclear to use as leverage against a future nuclear Iran??

    Thanks to India not involved on afgan battlefield. Our vulnerability is not out of proportion.

    US homeland is never endangered even if AQ/LeT gets their hands on Pak nukes.

    Pakistan has sold out it's people for their nuclear program and became an epicenter for terrorism,nuclear proliferation and a pariah failed state up for sale to the highest bidder. In the end they will have their nukes which will still be useless against India's BMD. All wasted and failed efforts.

    India did well in not engaging militarily in afganistan.

    But the truth is these terrorists wont even think about that point when they get their hands on some dirty stuff , they will target two countries , ISRAEL and India.

    Alternatively target their support nations itself namely saudis after all 90 percent of all funded religion based terror originates from Saudi riches.

    Either one has its possibility but i doubt these rougues can get to any substantial arsenal.

    Saudis are more concerned in Middle Eastern issues, recently they were invited by Pak in discussing Afghanistan's future and they showed little to no interest. More aid money has come from USA with no conditions or accountability that has been diverted for terror.
