India Covertly Upping Thermo-Nuclear Weapon Capability In Race With China, Pakistan: IHS
[link to www.ibtimes.com]
India is expanding a covert uranium enrichment plant capable of developing thermonuclear weapons, and it's likely to heighten tensions in a nuclear arms race with neighboring China and Pakistan, defense research group IHS Inc.

IHS said it discovered the plant's activity using satellite imagery and announced it on Friday.

IHS defense and security intelligence experts identified the facility near Mysore in southern India at an existing rare metals plant and said it could be operational as soon as mid-2015. The new units would increase India’s ability to produce weapons-grade uranium to twice the amount needed for its nuclear-powered submarine fleet, according to IHS.

“The enrichment plant was originally built to provide uranium for submarine reactors. But there is now significant excess capacity for other purposes, most likely nuclear weapons," IHS proliferation editor Karl Dewey said in a statement Friday.

The news could indicate a weak policy of nuclear precautions under India’s new prime minister, Narendra Modi, and comes as Iran seeks to lift sanctions from six world powers over its own nuclear program, with a deadline in negotiations set in a month and significant differences between the two sides remaining.

Needless to say, Pakistan most likely is upping its won arsenal, otherwise its not a race.

Lame propaganda, it takes a lot more than enriched uranium to make thermonuclear anything.

Someone doesn't know what they're talking about...

...but potentially also to support the development of thermonuclear weapons.

I like to think I'm well informed about such things, and this looks like a nonsequitur to me. They're talking "nuclear", Hiroshima type weapons, fission weapons. "Thermonuclear" generally means fusion type weapons, 1000 times more destructive, or more. Needs tritium and gobs of classified shit.

On the other hand, what do I know?

Thermonuclear weapons (mostly fusion) have far less fallout than more fissile types, though the immediate destructive potential is of course pretty insane.

Btw, all of India's supposed "good" thorium reactors are really not anything like the proposed "good" thorium reactors.

Also, MOX features heavily in Indian nuclear power.

Good stuff.
