When it comes to government there are plenty of people who believe with power comes respect. And because of this people tend to improve or enhance their military along with its weapons. Pakistan being one of the few has been trying to develop a new missile that would allow them to attack at sea level in the event that they had no other choice but to use the nuclear weapons they have developed. Nuclear weapons in general are in a sense a symbol of power. If you have them then you’re seen as somewhat having a strong military, and the more you have, you’re a force to be wrecked with. Pakistan has spent years trying to “bolster it’s nuclear arsenal with tactical weapons- short range missiles that make it easier to transport” . The problem I see with nuclear weapons in general is that they cost a significant amount of money to even support that could be fostered into doing something that would be even more beneficial to their military. Although their goal is to develop what they state a “second strike capability” which would allow them to have another shot to attack; the main question I kept thinking about while reading this article was is it all worth it in the end ? Yeah, it helps your military and has neighboring countries thinking twice before even deciding to attack you . But economically is it all worth it?
