Did Pak favour by making N-bomb; army stabbed in back: AQ Khan

Khan also maintains that India and Pakistan have not fought a war since 1971 because both countries possess nuclear deterrence.

Disgraced nuclear scientist A.Q. Khan has said he did Pakistan a favour by making the atomic bomb but was 'stabbed in the back by the very people who benefited most' from his work - the army.
Khan, who now gets a 'special pension' from the Pakistani army, also contended that India and Pakistan have not fought a war since 1971 because both countries possess a nuclear deterrence and are aware of the consequences of using atomic weapons.
"The deterrence of nuclear weapons lies in the fact that both sides know that the other can retaliate in kind," he said in an interview to Germany's Der Spiegel magazine.
Pointing out that there were no wars in Europe since 1945 due to the presence of the nuclear deterrence, he said the same was true 'between India and Pakistan since 1971'.
"The Kargil skirmishes (of 1999) were localised and the issue of the use of nuclear weapons never arose. We may be naive, but we are not idiots. Both sides know what the consequences would be," Khan said.
He is right if we don't count 1999 conflict of Kargil as a war!  
But, no Nuclear Scientists has achieved that notoriety he has achieved for himself!!
