    Why do i get the feeling Pakistan will soon be the seventh country in the world to have that ability?

    They get someone on China's southern border that can make the Chinese kinda nervous.

    China and India are economic partners and political rivals. Makes for an interesting combination.

    I have no problem with India having a nuclear-powered submarine. Pakistan, now... they make me a bit nervous. Too many extreme-Islamofascists running loose in Pakistan.

    As long as they continue to hate India, their capacity for mischief is rather self-contained.

    Yeah. Just what the heck is so valuable about the Cashmere region anyway?

    No Pakistan is many years away from having any form of Nuke Subs. As it stands now they have five French Build Diesel Subs.

    I have never understood that either - I believe it is merely a power play, neither side able to be seen as weak on such a issue but i have gathered it is territorial dispute only. No actual religious claim. Both claim historical right to the land because a section of 'their group' live there. When the British split the land up when Britain had both as part of the empire, we did not resolve this issue and as a result. They hate each other because neither side is willing to compromise. Pakistan accuses India of hypocracy, India refuses to recognise two regions that Pakistan says it is theirs on the grounds that is is populated with a hindu majority, Pakistan claims the same grounds on Kashmir.

    But another reason could be the geographical positioning as it is bordering China

    Correct me if i'm wrong but i gathered that is the gist of it, i'm sure it is more complicated.
