Nuclear Weapons: The Pride of Pakistan

Hosted by  • 

Two nuclear-armed nations make South Asia one of the world's most dangerous places, with Pakistan rapidly increasing its arsenal to outpace India. Now Pakistan has developed small, short-range "tactical nukes" that could be misused by rogue commanders or seized by terrorists. That's causing alarm in India, and in Washington, where Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is due for a visit this week. The Obama White House has broken a long silence and said that nuclear safety will be on the agenda.
