    Pakistan's situation demands that we have extra nukes as a deterrent to Indian aggression. We may have 110 already-some more than India's nukes.

    This is plain bullshit! NO ONE knows the exact number of nukes each country has. This is all guess work and hypothetical.

    We want pakistan to have more nukes. more money for nuclear program and more for their protection. Hence less for development....

    The 80-100 figure mentioned wrt to India is a result of analysis of India's capacity of producing weapon grade plutonium by experts, same is case with Pakistan
    '
    In future we may produce more nukes as our SSBN based Missiles will need warheads too

    My Dear Friend Haviz :D

    Nuclear weapons are Psychological weapons, they aren't weapons of ACTUAL use.

    Even 10 nukes can make catastrophic damage to any country, after that if a country is increasing it's stockpile than it's on a self-comforting journey.

    I don't mind if India has less nukes than Pakistan, infact i would rather like India to bring the nos. down to 20-30 nukes & build safe delivery platforms like a SSBN, as making them & storing them incurs huge costs, as are reports, Pakistan is spending nearly $2.5 billion only on it's nuclear stockpiles per YEAR, that is equal to 1% of Pakistani GDP.

    Saying that we will eat Grass but will make Nukes is one thing, but when the time comes of ACTUALLY eating grass..................

    It takes lot of money to safe guard the nuke arsenal and maintain them, money in millions of dollors annually.

    The more the number of nukes the more money you have to spend and lot of budget has to be spent on them.

    Best of luck to Pakistanis who were thinking that they need more number of nukes nuking entire India, since if they try to maintain that many nukes they may have to eat grass for a long time, based on the current situation of their economy.

    GDP is not bull****, everything comes with MONEY. Yes, we may spend double that of China on imports, but the fact still remains that we are still spending close to just 2% of GDP on defense, while the global average is close to 3% & China & Pakistan are spending close to 4%.

    Last time a country called GDP as bull**** & spend heftily on defense is now disintegrated into 15 republics. It's nuclear stockpile of 80,000 nukes couldn't do anything.
