At 1400 gmt on 16 September Pakistan's Geo TV News carried live its regularly scheduled "Capital Talk" program relayed from the channel's Islamabad studio. Prominent Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir is the host of the popular talk show in Pakistan. The guests were Retired Lt. Gen. Talat Masood, prominent defense analyst; Tariq Fatmi, former Pakistan ambassador to United States; Yousuf Nazar, prominent economist and columnist, who joins discussion via video link in Karachi; Retired Lt. Gen. Hamid Gul, former director general of Inter Services Intelligence. The discussion was on the theory of US' "grand plan" to "denuclearize" Pakistan
Hamid Mir begins the discussion by saying that the western media is describing Pakistan "as the most dangerous country of the world." Mir adds: the western newspapers, especially Washington Post and New York Times, are continuously writing that "Pakistan's security forces are secretly helping Islamic extremists, Pakistan's nuclear weapons are unsafe and Pakistan's tribal areas have become safe havens for terrorists. Continuing, Mir says some people in Pakistan are of the view that if full military power is used, extremists could be eliminated from the tribal areas, but many Pakistani observers also believe that "America's real war is not against terror and even if extremists are eliminated in tribal areas through use of full force, America would keep telling Pakistan //do more, do more// because its real target is Pakistan's military and Pakistan's nuclear program." Mir says: an American think tank with the cooperation of America's Naval War College carried out a study and prepared a plan in 1999 which aimed at destroying not only Pakistan's nuclear, but erase Pakistan from the world map. Mir adds: the plan surmises that America's B-52 bombers would attack and destroy Pakistan's nuclear installations in 2010 and by 2012 India would occupy Azad Kashmir [Pakistan-held Kashmir] and Pakistan's federation would become so weak that ultimately there would be a confederation of India and Pakistan and by 2020 even this confederation would end and Pakistan would be erased from world map. Mir says: the American think tank's study not only talked about end of Pakistan, but mentions disintegration of Iran and Afghanistan and claimed that these states would merge with Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.
