This article offers a discussion of nuclear doctrines and their significance for war, peace and stability between nuclear-armed states. The cases of India and Pakistan are analysed to show the challenges these states have faced in articulating and implementing a proper nuclear doctrine, and the implications of this for nuclear stability in the region. Consequently, as both India's and Pakistan's nuclear doctrines and postures evolve, the risks of a spiralling nuclear arms race in the subcontinent are likely to increase without a reassessment of doctrinal issues in New Delhi and Islamabad. A case is made for more clarity and less ambition from both sides in reconceptualizing their nuclear doctrines. We conclude, however, that owing to the contrasting barriers to doctrinal reorientation in each country, the likelihood of such changes being made—and the ease with which they can be made—is greater in India than in Pakistan.

When India and Pakistan tested nuclear weapons in May , some scholars and policy makers hoped that it would usher in a new era of stability. Others expected the worst possible outcome. The two countries shared a bloody history. They were born out of the partition of British India in In the orgy of Hindu-Muslim violence that followed, , to 1 million people were killed and roughly 15 million were displaced. Since then, India and Pakistan had fought three wars, two of them over the disputed territory of Kashmir.
Indian victory     . The cause of the war was the infiltration of Pakistani troops—disguised as Kashmiri militants—into positions on the Indian side of the LoC,  which serves as the de facto border between the two states in Kashmir. During the initial stages of the war, Pakistan blamed the fighting entirely on independent Kashmiri insurgents, but documents left behind by casualties and later statements by Pakistan's Prime Minister and Chief of Army Staff showed the involvement of Pakistani paramilitary forces ,    led by General Ashraf Rashid. Facing international diplomatic opposition, Pakistani forces withdrew from the remaining Indian positions along the LoC. The war is the most recent example of high-altitude warfare in mountainous terrain , and as such, posed significant logistical problems for the combating sides. It is also the sole instance of direct, conventional warfare between nuclear states i. India had conducted its first successful test in ; Pakistan, which had been developing its nuclear capability in secret since around the same time, conducted its first-known tests in , just two weeks after a second series of tests by India.
Haynes ManualsThe Haynes Author : Peter R. Lavoy Description:The conflict between India and Pakistan near the town of Kargil in contested Kashmir was the first military clash between two nuclear-armed powers since the Sino-Soviet war. Kargil was a landmark event not because of its duration or casualties, but because it contained a very real risk of nuclear escalation. Until the Kargil conflict, academic and policy debates over nuclear deterrence and proliferation occurred largely on the theoretical level. This deep analysis of the conflict offers scholars and policymakers a rare account of how nuclear-armed states interact during military crisis.

Название показалось ему чересчур земным для такого агрессора. - Червь, - недовольно сказал Джабба.
