US Has Plan To Protect Pakistan Nukes

From Fox News:

U.S. Has Plan to Secure Pakistan Nukes if Country Falls to Taliban

By Rowan Scarborough

Thursday, May 14, 2009

The United States has a detailed plan for infiltrating Pakistan and securing its mobile arsenal of nuclear warheads if it appears the country is about to fall under the control of the Taliban, Al Qaeda or other Islamic extremists.

American intelligence sources say the operation would be conducted by Joint Special Operations Command, the super-secret commando unit headquartered at Fort Bragg, N.C.

JSOC is the military’s chief terrorists hunting squad and has units now operating in Afghanistan on Pakistan’s western border. But a secondary mission is to secure foreign nuclear arsenals — a role for which JSOC operatives have trained in Nevada…

The source said JSOC has been updating its mission plan for the day President Obama gives the order to infiltrate Pakistan.

"Small units could seize them, disable them and then centralize them in a secure location," the source said.

A secret Defense Intelligence Agency document first disclosed in 2004 said Pakistan has a nuclear arsenal of 35 weapons. The document said it plans to more than double the arsenal by 2020.

A Pakistani official said the U.S. and his country have had an understanding that if either Usama bin Laden, or his deputy, Ayman Zawahiri, is located, American troops and air strikes may be used inside borders to capture or kill them.

What makes the Pakistan mission especially difficult is that the military has its missiles on Soviet-style mobile launchers and rail lines. U.S. intelligence agencies, using satellite photos and communication intercepts, is constantly monitoring their whereabouts. Other warheads are kept in storage… 

We have no doubt that the Defense Department has plans for all sorts of contingencies.

We just doubt that there is anyone in any position of power within the Obama administration to order them carried out.

Alas.

    “……..JSOC….the super secret commando unit headquartered at Ft. Bragg, N.C.”

      Yeah, LD .. they shudda said “the USED TO BE super secret commando unit ..” Dingbats!

    I do not … repeat … do not believe anything published in press reports, unless it is to turn that report inside out, upside down and apply it backwards. That way I invariably get the facts. Off the top of my head I can think of six ways this ‘story’ is planted by our traitorous complicit media marxists to prepare the public-perception-battlefield for a PR disaster in the making when our worst enemies emerge from Pakistan (formerly the Punjab, NW Territories, etc et al inter alia – and virtually all Pashtun thank you British Foreign Office) with nuclear weapons and an implacable jones to nuke India until it glows (an internecine affair). The only way our media-traitors can spin this as an American Military failure is to pre-establish the back story that ‘everyone is assured by JSOC that this won’t happen and we have a Plan’. Then when the frack goes down …

    Bovine scatology. Whatever plans have been made and whoever in our special forces is willing to lay it on the line to do the right thing is nothing .. compared to traitorous orders from alien impostor Chief Executives and the marxist Richlieus who surround him and carry out his Divine Commandments. Or, How To Screw Our Last Line Of Defense By Hanging Them Out To Dry. Meaning … how many times has the Right Thing been stillborn because civilian ‘authority’ got a case of cold feet and wet diapers? More times than there are drops of rain in a thunderstorm. This ‘story’ doesn’t mean Richard.

    Because, if it were fact, if we really do have a rock solid Plan to keep the Paki nukes out of the hands of the devil’s own brigades, WE WOULD NOT TALK ABOUT IT.

    (yes I know the NYT will spill anything for a buck and a chance to bend over a settee, but our real warriors do not talk … ergo … this story is made up, is part of a PR Disaster Plan and is preparatory to how they’re going to lay the blame on our Services)

    Well lessee.

    Let’s suppose there is a plan, and as Steve says, there probably is one. And now let’s say that we wait for those misunderstood Talibans to move, knowing that we have “a plan”. Then there would be only two possiblities, wouldn’t there: we get the nukes before the Taliban does, or we don’t.

    WHY ON GOD’S EARTH WOULD WE RISK THE TALIBAN GETTING F***ING NUKES!!!

    This is madness of the highest order.

    If anybody thinks there is a 1% chance of those lunatics getting nukes, wouldn’t any sane person send in the Special Forces, armored divisions, the marines and the Seals NOW.

    But heh he, of course we know why we aren’t doing that, don’t we?

  4. Petronius says:

    Because of their ideology, Liberals are constitutionally unequipped for the use of force (except against enemies on the Right). This is partly because Liberalism values peace more than anything except equality. It is partly because of the Liberal’s optimistic view of human nature––”Come, let us reason together,” as LBJ used to say to the commies. But it is mainly because Liberals do not believe in any of the things that are genuinely worth fighting and dying for, things like God, king and country, sovereignty, Western Civilization, liberty, or honor. The things that Liberalism has to offer are never worth fighting for . . . who wants to die for a national heath care system, closed shop, or affirmative action?

    As a result, when Liberals are tested––as Joe Biden rightly assures us they will be––they are erratic in the use of military force, acting out of political expediency, panic, humiliation, impatience, fear, public pressure, or because the enemy calls their bluff, rather than from a studied and prudent assessment of the situation. And it is a safe bet that, if they deploy military force, they will bungle the job. Where a conservative might have deployed smaller forces at an earlier stage, and resolved a situation with minimal fuss before it got out of hand, the Liberal comes to the battlefield with too little too late, resulting in unnecessary bloodshed, destruction, and political damage. Thus Democrat CINCs always use force at the wrong times and places, against the wrong enemies or targets, and in the wrong amounts. Examples of military bunglings by Democrat CINCs are legendary and it would be a waste of space to list them here.

    • proreason says:

      either that, or they are cowards and prefer for others to do the dirty work.

      But seriously Petronius, I find myself occasionally disagreeing with your generous assessment of the scum-filled, scurilous, cowering, seething, egomaniacal left.

      They aren’t peace loving. They would cut your heart out in a heart-beat if they thought they could gain an advantage. And they would let ants eat you eye-bulbs if they thought they could get your money too. Indeed, they are the domestic equivalent of the Taliban, imho.

      The are ‘fully equipped to use force” when they see an advantage.

      But if they think they can slide by for a few more years in their drug-drenched debauched “lifestyles” and leave the problem to somebody else, even if the problem will be 1,000 times greater than it is today, they will do it every time. EVERY TIME.

      That’s what drives them.

    • Petronius says:

      Pro: “They would cut your heart out in a heart-beat ….”

      I agree.

      If Liberals are using force “against enemies on the Right” (the exception I noted in my 1st sentence above), they will be utterly ruthless and use overkill. Take for example the degree of force used against the Christian Serbs in the Kosovo War or against Elián González, or at Waco or Ruby Ridge. But against real enemies and real threats, such as the Taliban capture of nuclear weapons, their actions are unpredictable. If they should use military force, they will screw things up and make the situation worse.

      I would not be surprised if someday I were hauled before one of their Truth and Reconciliation Commissions. If that happens, I hope I can count on your support.

    • proreason says:

      “I hope I can count on your support”

      I will loan you the designer leg chains I ordered special once I began posting on S&L, because I’ve overheard the guys who park outside my door all day talking about removing my legs. They mumble stuff about obamy, religion, wouldliketo, break his, up his, and stuff like that. I think they work for Moronacorn Inc.

    • Dangerous says:

      I’m afraid, Petronius, that all the support anyone here could offer you when you’re hauled up in front of the Commissions would be a little encouragement as we stand next to you, or once we’re all together in line for our lobotomies.

      As an aside, I love how everyone is always so optimistic here. =P

  5. MinnesotaRush says:

    Petronious .. I’m thinkin’ like the rest, we’re all likely to boil early on. I, like many here, am a Vet. A white conservative. Pro-life. Been to a couple of Tea Parties and Tax Rally’s. Am dead set against Franken (along with all of my friends). And .. own guns and believe in the Right to!

    We are marked men and women!

    We could all try to wear our S&L T-shirts to the shindig. That’d piss em off, too!

    • MinnesotaRush says:

      I’m wondering if somebody briefed the lying Princess Pelosi on this ….

      Better have her sign off on it and her attendance .. DOH!!!

    • canary says:

      Pro, I hear ya. I came close to jumping one of those weird robed hatted fellows. I didn’t take my eyes off his hands, and looking for anything bulkie under his robe. When I did make a second eye contact, he didn’t look happy.
      Intermittent eye contact he showed he was focused looking at me with mad eyes. What the heck does he expect dressed like that, in an area where it wasn’t normal. So, had I believed and jumped him in error, I’d have to figure out what to say so I wasn’t charged with a hate crime on top of an assault. A double hate crime, because a man dressed as a woman, might be implied it was not because he was a terrorist, but because of his sexual preferance of going drag. But, you see I have my own little make-shift muslim outfit, I pray I never have to wear, so I can go to court, and say, I am good muslim. He winked at me, and
      defiled me in front of allah. After I learn enough Mexican to say “Get away. The police are on their way. I will shoot you.” then I’m going to learn a little muslim.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      canary………. as for learning enough Mexican to say anything………
      ……….. Please Press #1 first.
