Pakistan "can't protect" its nukes - Is nuclear terrorism next?

The Telegraph of London is reporting that Pakistan's own Professor Pervez Hoodbhoy has stated there was evidence that the Pakistani Army had been infiltrated by "extremist elements".

Shaun Gregory, director of the Pakistan Security Unit at the University of Bradford in Britain, has also stated;"A frontal assault on nuclear weapons storage facilities, which are the most robustly defended elements of Pakistan's nuclear weapons cycle, is no longer an implausible event."

Something to think about. If Pakistan's nuclear security becomes highly suspect reliability-wise, then this might spark a war with India. Pakistan aims its nukes principally at India and vice versa. There is NO way IMHO that India would tolerate Pakistani nukes falling into terrorist hands if they could prevent it by a pre-emptive attack on Pakistan's nuclear inventory. Not saying this will happen, but I don't think it is beyond the realm of consideration as a possibility by the West.
