A very superficial and pedantic view is being presented by many so called analysts about US Pakistan relations.
Pakistan's civilian government has come as part of a secret deal brokered by the USA by its principal dog catcher Musharraf who passed on the baton of the relay race to the civilian democratically elected government. Now the facts:
1-The Defence Minister has no clue about defence matters other than maintaining good relations with the army because his home town was close to the military cantonment at Kharian.
2-The Foreign Minister has no experience in foreign policy matters.His statement the other day that there is no coordination between US civil and military displays his ignorance. The assurance was given by US Joint Chiefs about not doing any more attacks. While the violation he referred to was again done by the US military in Afghanistan. So where does the lack of coordination between civil and military come in. An intelligent Foreign Minister should have tried to bring in the Russians and Chinese also in any future security set up. After all USA is not the only one responsible for worlds security. At this stage it should have been ideal to snub the NATO and USA by recognising Abkhazia and South Ossetia also.
3-Pakistan is already sold totally since 9/11 and its leaders are only rubber stamps.
4-The army has already lost the moral ascendancy and any new compromise which Pakistan's politicians are going to make or have already secretly made by giving USA a base near Islamabad will further reduce the army's credibility.
5-The army by doing some Noora Kushti with the Americans is trying to regain its badly lost credibility.This is again funny and the army is heavily dependent on the USA.
A hard long bloody civil war is going to commence with no end in sight.
