The completion of the nuclear triad enhances Pakistan's retaliatory capability or assured second-strike
Technically the best mode of second-strike
capability is submarine launched ballistic missile, which neither India nor Pakistan have deployed as yet, Cheema said.
According to media speculation, the new submarines will provide Israel with second-strike capability, in the event that Iran, or any other state, attacks Israel with nuclear weapons.
Second-strike capability is essential for deterring nuclear attack.
That's the only problem second-strike
capability will resolve.
"To meet its ultimate deterrence objectives -- that is, to deter the most overwhelmingly destructive enemy first-strikes -- Israel must seek and achieve a visible second-strike
capability to target approximately 15 enemy cities," the report, presented to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, said.
