There is no doubt that today Pakistan is passing through worst period of its history and entangled in bundle of internal and external controversies, difficulties, but despite all these complexities Pakistan keeps its existence as an important state on world map.
Conspiracies and plotting has been planned against Pakistan from the day one of its independence to depict a worst picture of the first Islamic nuclear state before the world. Negative propagandas still using to show Pakistan a failed state, but their all schemes go fail.
Pakistan is not a failed state and if it would be a failed state then the United States and military alliance of 48 countries not bow down before it and apologized over its lethal attack of November 25, 2011 at a military check-post of Pakistan. Taking strong action against the Nato attack Pakistan blocked Nato supply route on the very next day of the attack.
Since then, the United States and Nato played its every card to reopen Nato supply line by taking Pakistan into pressure by using other tactics. The US feared Pakistan with sanctions, and also tried to elevate Balochistan issue to show it a failed state. The US also threatened Pakistan with the blockade of Coalition Support Fund.
When US remained failed in its every tactics it apologized and said ‘sorry’ to Pakistan and also accepted that Salala attack was its mistake. The US also assured to avoid such incident in the future.
The US apology shows that Pakistan is not a failed state, but it has potential to bow down a super power.
The US and Nato have knew that their mission in Afghanistan cannot accomplish successfully if Pakistan split itself from the war against terror. They know very well that drawdown of approximately 128,000 international troopers from the war torn Afghanistan is unfeasible without Pakistan’s assistance.
At the end I must say that Pakistan cannot survive alone in this modern age, but Pakistan has potential to put others in difficult situation owing to its specific geographical conditions and nuclear status.
