The other nuclear struggle

In an article for London’s Sunday Times, Anupam Shrivastava, director of UGA’s Center for International Trade and Security, shed light on the changing nature of the years-old conflict between India and Pakistan in the nuclear age.

“Unlike Pakistan, India has a no first strike policy. It completely changes India’s military planning because having plutonium gives Pakistan the option of deploying from land, sea or air. For Pakistan it’s a quantum leap. It gives them options to target all of India,” he said.
