    I don't think it's worth it. Money would be better spent on development and the economy.

    Well for development, 65 percent of the Pakistani budget consists of programs related to health and development sector and most of them are lost to corruption. If military is doing something good with its own resources, which will put Pakistan in few countries of the world (similar to nuclear program) then no harm in pursuing it.

    It will be done thanks to our Chinese friends and it really is very difficult indeed, that is why even now fast approaching 2018 a nation with 1.2+ billion like India is unable to achieve this objective through indigenous efforts.
