Yes things are looking up. Pakistan, because of its location and good ties with China, is in a good position to make its lot better. Its a pity that for long periods we infuriated Russia (for no reason at all), but like you have said, it's time we politely told US that we are not its sentries/pawns any more.
The only trouble is that to avail this opportunity we need leadership, but that is one commodity that has always been in short supply throughout the unfortunate history of our nation. And judging by the sorry choices on offer today, we are not getting real leaders any time soon.
