Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC)/ Destabilisation of Pakistan and possible takeover of Pakistani Nuclear Arsenal by clandestine groups
The Agonizing Problem of Pakistan's Nukes
Bordering Afghanistan, now again under Taliban rule, is Pakistan, one of America’s oddest “allies.” Governed by a shaky coalition of ineffective politicians and trained military leaders trying desperately to contain the challenge of domestic terrorism, Pakistan may be the best definition yet of a highly combustible threat that, if left unchecked, might lead to the nightmare of nightmares: jihadis taking control of a nuclear weapons arsenal
