Description

An MSNBC.com investigation reveals an assessment of American intelligence agencies that "in recent years ... the nuclear force that Pakistan fields has overtaken India's...," thus changing the power of balance in South Asia. The reporters find that now "Pakistan's nuclear arsenal is vastly superior to that of rival India, with up to five times the nuclear warheads," mostly due to "generous Chinese assistance." Amongst the key findings is also that "Pakistan has far more capability [than India] to actually use them." The online medium reports on the India's reaction to the reassessment and describes it as "furor bordering on panic in India, where governments have always assured citizens that they would never allow Pakistan to obtain superiority in strategic weapons."
