Missiles and nuclear power has increased an overall threat to the security of nations. Increasing competition in the field is not only contributing to increased concern about international diplomacy and defense efficiency but also bringing to light the question whether we are pacing to the verge of a world war III. It has come to minds of many that whether hoarding nuclear energy is just for realization of human intelligence and its achievement or is it indicating that the Governments are concerned?
It would be very much validated to say that that this assembled ammunition, rockets, missiles and other strategic systems would prove apocalyptic if any nation would strive to gain secluded power.
Missiles and Nuclear power – India
India, with the launch of Agni V has propelled itself to the so called elite nuclear club of countries with “Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile “(ICBM), technology. This club includes U.S., Russia, France, U.K. and China – countries advanced in ICBM technologies and also are the permanent members of U.N. security council.
Competing in the race is Pakistan’s intermediate range ballistic missile ‘Hatf IV Shaheen-1A’, which is capable of carrying nuclear and conventional warheads. Pakistan launched its missile in quick succession to Agni V India’s 5,000 km, intermediate range, ballistic missile. Forming a key component in India’s nuclear arsenal, Agni V can carry around 1 – 1.5 tonne of conventional and nuclear war heads and is one with the longest range in the Indian cache. The mission was completed with apt precision and efficiency in a travel span of 20 minutes as it descended at the pre-designated target in the Indian Ocean. Today India’s versatility incorporates designing, developing and ingeniously materializing long range missiles of this complexity.
Missiles and Nuclear power- India vs Pakistan
Officials claim that Agni V is not country specific yet the fact remains that the missile can reach most parts of China including Beijing.
Pakistan’s launching of Shaheen-1A with the impact point being in the Indian ocean has caused questions to arise in the mind of officials as Pakistan’s major missile testing has been directed to desolated arid deserts. Coincidence it may be but, the timing of these launches has raised eyebrows and concern in respect to threats of missiles and nuclear power.
