  1. US will keep parroting like this to please Pakistan, until… they fully exit from Afghanistan. Presently USA is in deep trouble economically, and hence is disparate to avoid any new trouble creeping in to their Afghan exit timetable. Until then, keep USA will keep Pakistan in good humor. Post 2014 is the time frame Pakistan should watch for.

  2. The USA is correct that a stable Pakistan is necessary for peace in the region…the question becomes how stable is Pakistan?…when military installations are attacked by TTP killers and the government does not appear to be able to stop it…Islamic extremists have ruined the land of the pure and turned it into pure hell…the enemy within is currently winning…
