You got your opinion. I got mine. I have already shared my thoughts along with sources. Clearly the experts are divided on this. I am not surprised that we are too. Frankly, I got nothing more to say on this subject. Let's just leave it at that. I don't seek hostility. I just wanted to share my thoughts and perspectives.And what are your sources that saying the likelihood of Pakistan and India gone to nuclear exchange is lower than USSR and US risk in cold war ?
Again US and USSR has not facing each other directly in hot war, While India and Pakistan already done it. You can't state that cause you're Pakistan native or you are in the Army of Pakistan, thus it's enough to say that India and Pakistan risk for nuclear exchange is lower than anyone else.
Again US and USSR/Russia has lot off protocols and satellites network that can be used to verified and counter verified any potential nuclear build up. Something that India and Pakistan is not on that level.
Pakistan and India has higher risk on nuclear exchange is not mean both of them will have nuclear exchange tommorow. However it's clearly without the protocols that Big 5 already build toward each other, their risk is on nuclear exchange is smaller than India and Pakistan.
That article you have put is meaningless, as it's not shown how Pakistan and India have developed protocols and safe guard measure to avoid potential Nuclear exchange. It's just article on opinion of Pakistan and India already reach mutual destruction capabilities. Again US and USSR or Russia now even China has build multiple protocols and safe guard to avoid potential miss calculations or miss interpretation.
You can find multiple sources that can explain that. There's a lot off reading that shown how those protocols can avoid in several occasions of US and USSR miss interpretation.
So please, enlighten us if India and Pakistan already develop that in same level of the Big 5.
Other than that, the risk of Nuclear exchange between Pakistan and India still higher than anyone else with nuclear weapons.
