WASHINGTON: Small increments of stockpile growth and multiple warhead missiles will ratchet up a triangular nuclear competition among China, India and Pakistan , a new book has said while warning that there are no realistic prospects for banning such arsenal.
With China beginning its long-awaited deployment of the DF-5B intercontinental ballistic missile, India and Pakistan are likely to respond by placing multiple warheads atop some of their missiles, the book titled 'The Lure and Pitfalls of MIRVS: From the First to the Second Nuclear Age' said.
The book, co-edited by Michael Krepon, Co-founder of the Stimson Center, and Shane Mason, says that in the second nuclear age, no less than the first, there are no realistic prospects for banning multiple-warhead missiles.
China has started to deploy such missiles, and India and Pakistan are likely to cross this threshold as well.
该书是由Michael Krepon和Shane Mason合作编写的。书中指出，在第二核时代，正如第一核时代一样，禁止多弹头导弹的前景是不现实的。
Feku should not drag India into arm race.
This is a US report. They want this escalation so they are stating this and CIA would have started working on it by now.
why is US, the only country guilty of using nuclear bombs, preaches every one n warns every one ? why cant INDIA build enough BOMBS to have capacity destroy china n Pakistan at one go amd still be peaceful ?
This is not new.
