Israel planned to bomb Kahuta, our nuclear reactor, and undertook drills on a mock installation with India. It's a fascinating story and you can read more about it here: https://defence.pk/pdf/threads/wings-over-chagai.24124/
They also planned to kill AQ Khan, one of our prominent nuclear scientists, but he was put under house arrest by military authorities. He is accused of leaking nuclear tech, especially centrifuge design details, to Iran, N Korea and more.
There is no question that Pakistan had on-again off-again US support, that helped in such situations --- but Pakistan did not have hundreds of billions of dollars of oil ready to export, as Iran does.
Interestingly, it was a Pakistani pilot who shot one of the first IAF planes down (he was in Syria training the Syrian pilots there on the latest A2A tactics). The IAF pilot ejected and was captured by Syrian forces, and the PAF pilot paid him a visit in a Syrian military hospital as the Israeli pilot was recovering from his injuries. I believe his name was Captain M. Lutz of the Israeli Air force.
I think everyone here is misunderstanding what I'm saying. I WANT Iran to be able to hit Israel back more effectively, to create even better deterrence and to go nuclear ASAP. I also hope and pray that Pakistan-Iran relations continue to improve. I have a lot of respect for Iran to standing up to joint US-Israeli plans.
LOL Israelis planned to bomb your plant but "did not" ... they wanted to kill your scientist ... but "did not" ... Saddams 400 planes strong top notch USSR built Airforce did not scare them, Iran's oil wealth, proxies, Cruise+Ballastic missile packages (tried and tested) does not scare them, Turkish military does not scare them but they got scared of Mighty Pakistans IMF owned economy or the Chinese donated Migs? are you out of yoru mind doostam? I have nothing against Pakistan but trust me you have nukes because leaders of the world found it favourable for their own strategies otherwise they would have done to your nuclear plants what they have done to iraqs, syrias and libyas. South Asian culture warrants constantly mocking others while forgetting about their own history. Do you want me to tell you which nations helped Pakistan in nuclear development ... trust me it will start with Europe. No one helped any middle eastern country.
Israel tried but they failed.Remember operation Kahuta.US was our cold war ally.We assured them that our nuclear weapons are solely India based.So they only sanctioned us and did nothing to destroy our nuclear power plants.In fact Western black markete helped us a alot to achieve success in our nuclear ambitions.so west only sanctioned us. US herself allowed us to carry out nuclear research for civilian energy projects in 50s.
By the way,US F16 were proved very useful for protecting our nuclear stations.
So US protection was there. Exactly what i said before. if it was not ... your nuclear plant would have been sent to Indus valley times. Trust me no Islamic nation is allowed. Not us, not Turkey not iraq or Saudi ... You are just lucky that US+EU had their strategy in your favor at that time.
