    Their core need to be stored in special canisters to avoid radiation to people around it, they need to be moved around to keep their location a secret and finally they need very specialised envoirnment for storage. That makes it costly.

    The cost for security establishment to secure and transport undercover close to 100 nuclear warheads is humongous in itself. And sure it is a big drain in their defence spending. But it is not gonna be in a spotlight for common people to recognize that defence spending it draining their economy to tatters. People need to understand and push the govt. that economic viability is vital and defence spending can put aside for a period of time and they will revolt strongly if that idea gets a shot of adrenalin.

    That is a insensitive comment. Sure they exaggerate most of the things and committed lot of atrocities in BD and you may be affected by it too but does not mean that you have to that mean to compare them like that.

    Oh the level of misinformation even the professional members spread.

    This isn't 2002 where the conventional gap was very large, in a conventional war the PA cannot match the IA, sure...

    But that's not the point, nor was it ever to match. But what I can say is that in terms of conventional firepower, the last decades saw the closing of the gap between Indian and Pak conventional capability.

    India no longer has the necessary technological edge or numbers to bust through our conventional defences.

    Re: Pakistan unable to match India - Economically & Militarily

    The Conventional differnece between pakistan and india in kargil and even upto 2005-06 was way too huge
    Today it is not even twice except the naval factor

    Pakistan will remain defensive,And the currenct conventional force is enough for defensive doctrine.

    Pakistan had a per capita higher than india for 6 decades,Ofcourse Pakistan Can't be compared to India in over all GDP because India's population is 6.9times more than pakistan and is also bigger 3.59times more than Pakistan by area which also translate into more resources.

    Pakistan was under a very good growth rate and if we had continue with more than 8% growth rate since than,Pakistan economy by now would had atleast been 380-400billion dollars.

    China's New Growth Challenger Is Pakistan: Mukherjee (Correct) - Bloomberg

    but anyway better late than never,I dont like this govt for their very childish and soft response to India but they are good at economy

    Man!! Our GDP is shrinking and jobs are being cut down. There is not point in comparing with a smaller country and getting happy. If we want a better future then we must set out policies right and start kicking out the menace of corruption and overpopulation from the system.

    If we compare Pakistan,India and Bangladesh history of GDP per capita.

    Pakistan had a higher per capita income than India upto 2008 and from Bangladesh always

    The 2013 Estimate of Pak GDP per capita is not updated since Pak GDP has already reached 1382-1410$,Hardly a bigger difference than india Even though When last year Pakistan GDP growth rate as per WB and IMF is 4.2% and India 3.2% While Pakistan is most likely to surpass India this year again in GDP growth rates.

    Pak Projection are based of 2.4% growth rate since 2010(Read it in 2010 but could not find the article now)

    International Monetary Fund, World Economic Outlook - Google Public Data Explorer

    So ups and down Are part of every country.If we had continued with 8.4% since 2004.The GDP per capita would be now close to 2000$ but WOT ruined everything.

    Still better late than never,After 8 long years Pak Economy is recovering Back with 4.2% growth rate last year and expected 5-5.5% this year.So it would be safe to assume that by 2015 Pak GDP growth rate would be in excess of 6%

    GDP growth rates

    Pakistan 4.3% last year
    India 3.2% Last year
    Bangladesh 6.1%

    all this talk of Pakistan trying to match india is non sense.

    Pakistan is probably one fifth the size of india. it doesn't have to match india at all. it merely needs to have credible offense and defense in certain sectors. people forget india will have to concentrate on two fronts.

    Pakistan is playing a very smart game militarily. it is getting things of reasonable quality at very less cost as compared to india. and china will always give arms to Pakistan to keep india occupied.

    if I was a strategic analyst at a very high level I wd engage Pakistan in low intensity conflict (most probably happening) in Baluchistan and other parts. give pak a taste of its own medicine at fractional cost.

    Decisions made during the course of the decades to harbor terrorists and training them, And corruption partly gives a bleak outlook for Pakistan.

    ANd Parity is something that kill you softly and gently and it would be too late before you know what is lost.
