Pak getting ready for India

Pakistan is on course to become the world's fifth largest nuclear weapons state, a top US think-tank said, estimating that the country's warheads would more-than-double to 250 in the next ten years. Pakistan has a nuclear weapons stockpile of 110 to 130 warheads, an increase from an estimated 90 to 110 warheads in 2011. The report comes just a day after Pakistan acknowledged having developed "low-yield, tactical nuclear weapons" to "deter" a possible attack from India.
