    There is currently a great churn taking place in Pakistan, which is keeping Pakistan busy as they jockey for relevance - the Govt, the Army, the ISI, the Judiciary, Nawaz Sharif, Inran Khan, the TTP et al.

    The situation is being watched and it would be not in the interest of the US to queer the pitch wherein one side wins over the others, as all contenders are dangerous to the US interest.

    Of recent development, the Chinese Minister has done a Hopalong into Pakistan to put in China's two penny bit.

    Since when did US care about any sentiments and wait for things to cool? Pakistan has two timed them enough for them to not show any mercy.

    In geopolitics, I think that there are many issues that are not quite straightforward or ethical as it would appear to the common man.

    Even if one hates, one cannot display it.

    For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.
