Why India's N Tests In 1998 Was Not Forseen

Thu Feb 10, 2005 9:14 pm

Why did the US not notice any mvmt towards India's Nuclear Tests in 1998.
Was it because India had already tested in 1974.Or was the US fooled.
I heard talk on how Indian Intelligence monitored the mvmt of Spy sattelites while moving equipment around so that when out of view the trucks rolled.
Whats the facts.

Just because the US didn't notice doesn't mean no one else noticed  Big grin

Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

Hmmm, good question, Hawk. Maybe the same reason they haven't forseen that Israel has, too.

And maybe the same reason they haven't forseen that other countries feel unsafe when India, Israel, USA, China, North Korea have this sh*t too.
