Chinese involvement with Pakistan's illegal nuclear proliferation

It appears that confidential letters by AQ Kahn, many dating back to 2003, are being slowly leaked to Fox News.

IMO: Fox News is part of the Murdoch empire. Sometimes it obtains useful factual information.

Last week Fox News allegedly obtained Khan's 2003 letter to his wife in which the nuclear engineer reveals a stunning degree of proliferation between Islamabad and Beijing, evidently with government compliance.

In the letter Khan says, "You know we had cooperation with China for 15 years. We put up a centrifuge plant at Hanzhong. We sent 135 C-130 plane loads of machines , inverters, valves, flow meters, pressure gauges . Our teams stayed there for weeks to help and their teams stayed here for weeks at a time. Late minister Liu We, V M (vice minister) Li Chew, vice minister Jiang Shengjie used to visit us."

The C-130 military transport planes were given to Pakistan by the US under a military aid program, presumably to combat terror. China and Pakistan appeared to have collaborated to do exactly the opposite  In fact, documents relating to Pakistan's proliferation through much of the 1990s suggest US was asleep on the watch through much of the nuclear exchanges involving Pakistan, China, North Korea , Iran, and Libya.

Khan also reveals that "the Chinese gave us drawings of the nuclear weapon, gave us 50kg enriched uranium , gave us 10 tonnes of UF6 (natural) and 5 tonnnes of UF6 (3%). Chinese helped Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission in setting up UF6 plant, production reactor for plutonium and reprocessing plant." Further, Khan said "Gen Jehangir Karamat (chief of army staff 1996-8 ) took $3 million through me from N Koreans and asked me to give them some drawings and machines" .

IMO: On the basis of the above information, it seems that if there is really a "war on terror", the administrators of both Pakistan and China are on the side of the evil doers. And Pakistan apparently is helping China to suppress its Muslim minority - hardly a pro-Islamic thing to do. That sort of thing would not be allowed in India.
