India/Pakistan Missile Tests Escalate Arms Race in South Asia

Although the April launch of India’s new Agni-V long-range ballistic missile – capable of hitting Beijing or Shanghai – was probably intended to send a message to Beijing about India’s military capabilities, it has kicked off a series of competing missile tests with Pakistan, its other regional rival. Hostilities appear unlikely at this time, but the surge in tests of nuclear-capable missiles is destabilizing and raises the potential for a serious escalation if it continues.

We’ve warned of this before – the only solution is to disarm both countries via the UN Security Council before someone lights a match to this tinderbox area.
