This is pushed due to the recent advancements in Afghanistan. The Enemy is Big, and time is very low.

In simple fairness, we need a lot of non-nuclear deterrents against the Taliban Regime. They are gaining ground, and now we need to go ahead and modernize our western fronts as well, I guess I was thinking the other day, just like the US had plans to use nukes to blow holes underground. I have a really cool idea of blowing holes with nukes in the border with Afghanistan, essentially making a living wall. And when the Taliban come we use artillery to put them in the death pit. TBH, I think this is a grave threat. Bigger than India. If that is too much overkill at least we can bring down strategic mountains from where they can pass especially since they just got access to the very strategic location in Balochistan-Afghanistan Area.

We need to crack down on the Heroin Trade as well. And improve our Artillery is a push for just that.

First of all you need to educate yourself. There is nothing like Taliban. It's either Afghan Taliban (they call themselves Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan - IEA) or Tahreek Taliban Pakistan (TTP). Former Taliban have been fighting against foreign occupation forces in Afghanistan for last twenty years and made the enemy bite the dust. TTP, on the other hand, was created by the evil axis CIA-RAW-NDS for carrying out terrorist attacks in Pakistan. Afghan Taliban have never fired even a bullet against any Pakistani or worked against Pak interests. The terrorists of TTP have killed scores of innocent Pakistanis in schools, markets, parks, mosques, i.e. everywhere, by carrying out numerous terrorist attacks. These scumbags are currently being wiped out by Pak security forces resulting in less terroris attacks in Pakistan.

Why do we need a lot of non-nuclear deterrents against the Taliban Regime? When did Afghan Taliban threatened Pakistan? Give a few examples.
TBH, I think this is a grave threat. Bigger than India. If that is too much overkill at least we can bring down strategic mountains from where they can pass especially since they just got access to the very strategic location in Balochistan-Afghanistan Area.

Again make some sense out of your BS by justifying it.

Pakistan's artillery is in great shape in terms of mobile SP, and MLRS's, but needs work on fixed towed guns.

Are you for real or are you on hash?? We don't have got any issues with Taliban and they have got their own country to look after and let them do their job.
