If US is able to secure other supply routes through the Central Asian countries by offering some sort of a carrot / stick where does it place Pakistan on its so called cooperation on the ware on terror ? Obviously as long as the US remains in Afghanistan that will keep mobilising the Taliban don't see a change to that sentiment.

If US need not rely on Pakistan then will that mean that some of the Pakistani public anger against the US will subside in Pakistan ?

Will the Pakistani militant uprising in the NW region then turn their full wrath on the US in Afghanistan or will they turn eastwards towards the Pakistani establishment ?

Will US close the tap on the dollar / weapon aids and will they make more brazen attacks on suspected terror camps on Pakistani territory. ?

Complex picture, not sure if it is a good or bad thing for Pakistan to lose its position of being the major supply route.

I think India should step in and help out a fellow democracy.

Its not practically feasible. Plus the alternate routes are available for only 5-6 Months a year.

There are reports that the attacks on US supply convoys are actually backed by pak army sometimes when the US tries putting too much pressure on pak. How true is that?
