Nuclear Scenario

Nuclear Scenario

During the Cold War, if USA launched a nuke-loaded missile, Soviet  satellites would inform the Soviet army in 3 seconds and in less than  45 seconds Soviet counter-missiles would be on their way. Recent  studies commissioned by US department of Defense included one on  nuclear war between India and Pakistan.

This was their scenario.................

The Pakistan army decides to launch a nuke-missile towards India. They  don't need any permission from their government, and promptly order  the countdowns. Indian technology is highly advanced. In less than 8  seconds, Indian army detects the Pak countdown and decides to launch a  missile in retribution.

But they need permission from the Government of India. They submit  their request to the Indian President. The President forwards it to  the Cabinet. The Prime Minister calls an emergency Lok Sabha session.

The LS meets, but due to several walkouts and severe protests by the  opposition, it gets adjourned indefinitely. The President asks for a quick decision. In the mean time, the Pak  missile failed to take off due to technical failure. Their attempts  for a relaunch are still on.

Just then the Indian ruling party is reduced to a minority because a  party that was giving outside support withdraws it. The President asks  the PM to prove his majority within a week. As the ruling party fails  to win the confidence vote, a caretaker government is installed.

The caretaker PM decides to permit the armed forces to launch a  nuclear missile. But the Election Commission says that a caretaker  government can not take such a decision because elections are at hand.  A Public Interest Litigation is filed in the Supreme Court alleging  misuse of power by the Electio Commission.

The Supreme Court comes to the rescue of the PM, and says the acting!  PM is authorized to take this decision in view of the emergency facing  the nation. Just then one of the Pak missiles successfully took off, but it fell  367 miles away from the target, on its own government building at  11.00AM.

Fortunately there were no casualties as no employee had reached the  office that early. In any case, the nuclear core of the missile had  detached somewhere in flight.

The Pakistan army is now trying to get better technologies from China  and USA. The Indian Government, taking no chances, decides to launch a  nuclear missile of its own, after convening an all-party meeting. This  time all the parties agree. Its three months since the army had sought permission.

But as preparations begin, "pro-humanity", "anti-nuclear" activists  come out against the Government's decision. Human chains are formed and Rasta rokos organised. In California and Washington endless e-mails are sent to Indians  condemning the government and mentioning "Please forward it to as many  Indians as possible".

On the Pakistan side, the missiles kept malfunctioning. Some missiles  deviate from target due to technical failures or high-speed wind  blowing over Rajasthan. Many of them land in the Indian Ocean killing  some fishes.

A missile (smuggled from USA) is pressed into service. Since the  Pakistan army is unable to understand its software, it hits it  original destination: Russia. Russians successfully intercepts the missile and in retaliation  launches a nuclear missile towards Islamabad. The missile hits the  target and creates havoc.

Pakistan cries for help. India expresses deep regrets for what has happened and sends in a million dollars worth of Parle-G biscuits. Thus India never gets to launch the missile.

Pakistan never gets it right.

And both live happily ever after!!!!!
