Pakistan is an ally on the War on Terror.
I've heard some really poor stuff from GIs who served in Afghanistan though about Pakistan. Can't go into details though... one told us more than he should have.

Hi,

Quote:
Pakistan is an ally on the War on Terror.
The Country that is Home to most of the terror Organisation is a Frontline ally on war against terror ............ Now i am really worried....... we are doomed

This Pakistan-USA relaions is more of a compulsion for both sides .......... if you look at the ground most of the People in pakistan are opposed to US ........... but the Goverment can't Pull it's hand back because of all the Goodies it gets form USA ( Wepons and Aid) ............. on the other hand USA needs a Foothold in the Muslim Countries and more in the South Asia and Middle east .

Saudi Arabia is a Foot Hold in the Middle East and Pakistan Provides the Similar Foothold in the South Asia .

Third there is a risk of pakistani Wepons (nuclear) geting into Rough hands so US needs a Way to have a Influencing say in pakistan's Political system ...............that way they can neutralise a threat if need be some time in the future.............. US has Two bases Inside pakistan and this way they can Strike Quickly.

And on the Question why is USA not with India ...............it goes long way back to the Cold war ................ When India Decided not to ally with the US or Soviet side .......and US at that time was trying to encircle Soviet Union .............Pakistan provided one such opening......... India formed the Non-Aligned Movement and Created the third Block ........... USA used Pakistan and all these Muslim terror organisations at that time against the Soviets ..............whch India Refused to do.............. Pakistan was at that time a non-nato ally of USA ............. has has been getting Aid and Ammonution form that time ............. naturally India got Inclined to Soviet Union and later Russia..

It's not about War On terror ............... During the Afganistan invasion India too decided that if USA needs it's base of facilities it will provide them help............. because India - Iran were Already Providing Logistic and wepons help to the Northen-Allience ............. so it was on our faviour if the Pakistan backed Taliban was removed form Afganistan .

Despite of all that CIA reporting that Pakistani's Inteligence Agency ISI Helped taliban and Al-Quida and more recently paid Money to Al-quida ............and Khan the father of Pakistan's NUclear recerch ............selling Nuclear secrets to Libya , Iran , NK other countries .......and Pakistan being Home to Many terror Organistan.... ...... they have to be In and with Pakistan .................if the let Pakistan go and Pakistan falling into Clerics hand with all this weponary it has .......... would be devestating for everyone Including USA .


Peace

We got our history mixed up a little bit don't we?
IIRC Tito was the driving force behind the non-aligned pact together with the presidents of India and Egypt. (Nehru and Mubarak...not sure about the names though)
