A veteran journalist examines the state of military readiness in South Asia and compares the national forces with the immensity of the threats they face, particularly as the Taliban and ISIL coninually improve their weapons of terror and new militant groups continually appear. The author posits a link between the smuggling of nuclear materials and relations between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, asking about the role of large flows of investment capital. He discusses relations with India and other neighbors, groups like Khorasan and Kashmiri extremists, and reviews a variety of weapons systems that form the foundation of Pakistan's arsenal.
