This one’s really interesting. A recent (2011) Pakistani Ambassador to the US has written an insightful piece here. He says that the two countries’ interests just don’t overlap enough to make them allies, and both sides would do well to accept it.
There’s no hostility in what he says. He doesn’t see the countries as enemies – just not friends.
Wow! This sort of thinking is not too common! Herald of War thinks the Ambassador’s onto something here.
