When President Joseph R. Biden announced his decision to withdraw all US troops from Afghanistan, he said: "We will ask other countries in the region to support Afghanistan, especially Pakistan, as well as Russia, China, India and Turkey." Biden has also talked about the US reorganizing its counterterrorism capabilities in the region to be able to hit the target from “over the horizon.” These discussions have triggered speculation about the Biden administration seeking access to military bases in Pakistan to target the Taliban after total US pullout from Afghanistan.

Afghanistan-Pakistan-US Relations


Responding to a question on the subject of "drone strikes and air strikes" asked in an interview by Voice of America's Ayesha Tanzeem, President Arif Alvi said: I’m not aware, and I don’t think Pakistan will be in a position to offer that".

Alvi's response has not diminished the ongoing speculation about Pakistan helping US military's counterinsurgency ops in Afghanistan. Nick Reynolds, an analyst at the London-based think tank Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), has written a piece on it which brings in the United Kingdom helping the United States persuade Pakistan to allow the use of its territory to launch air strikes in Afghanistan. Here's an excerpt of Reynold's article:

"Ultimately, counterterrorism operations will have to continue in the region, and the US, UK and NATO will be further entangled in Pakistani diplomatic affairs as a result. There is a risk that the UK and NATO, if they wish to support the US, will only be able to do so by striking into Afghanistan from basing in neighboring countries, effectively a continuation of one of the current lines of effort that the Biden administration is attempting to terminate, except with the bases moved across the Pakistani border. The US, UK and NATO may even end up seriously escalating combat operations in Afghanistan in some form in future, either to prevent the Afghan government from falling or to address Taliban support for terrorist networks if they are allowed to take power. The Biden administration seeks to end the ‘forever war’ by withdrawing. However, given the ongoing situation with Islamist terrorism globally, the forever war looks instead as if it is transitioning into a new and dangerous phase in which the UK and NATO will be forced to play a continuing role".


Should Pakistan yield to western pressure yet again as it did after 911? Pakistan has paid a very heavy price for working with the United States in the last two decades. Tens of thousands of Pakistanis have died in attacks launched by groups opposed to US-Pakistan cooperation. Pakistan's economy has suffered hundreds of billions of dollars of losses. And yet, Pakistan continues to be accused of double-dealing. Pakistani civilian and military leaders will undoubtedly face very strong internal opposition to the use of Pakistani territory for any US military operations in Afghanistan.

Back in 2016, General David H. Petraeus thoroughly debunked intense media propaganda campaign of allegations of duplicity against Pakistan Army and ISI. He has also ruled out cutting ties with Pakistan as an option.

Here's the video of General Petraeus at RUSI. His remarks on Pakistan are in the last 8 minutes of the video:

We should not yet yanks near Balochistan, Kashmir, or the Indus plain. They should be confined to ex-FATA and under strict surveillance. Democrats will no doubt try to start a conflict in Pakistan.

Nah, America will be fine :usflag:we'll just invade couple of more ME countries for oil and we are good to go :)
No harm in talking to a neighbor as USA is in Afghanistan as of now ( so some sort of neighbor ) but Pakistan experience with US after 1989 i.e sanctions e.t.c ( 1979-1989 ) , after 2011 ( 2001 - 2011 ) ( 2011-2021 ) and in 1965 , 1971 , Kargil war e.t.c makes it IMPOSSIBLE to allow US bases in Pakistan FULL STOP

well USAF C-17s and C-130s are regular visitors of nur khan airbase . they already using our air bases .
Thats using bases, not camped there like Afghanistan. Or having permanent bases like Qatar or Bahrain. They are looking for a permanent base. This should NEVER happen. If Pakistan yields to this pressure, be prepared to live in this continuous poverty, terrorism, suffering and a virtual battlefield of opposing forces.

US gets no blowback sitting thousands of miles away. It is us who will suffer.

Given how the USA have behaved with Pakistan by the USA refusing to pay their OWN CSF bills to Pakistan - why should Pakistan take the risk? There billions of dollars of unpaid bills right now...

You only have to look at the preferential economic treatment that the USA and countries of NATO give to India to realise how lopsided the relationship is and how it is not in Pakistans interest to get into this situation again..

That must be a very special Ohio class submarine with a very special Minuteman ICBM for the two of them to be accommodated with each other. Let's scale back the demand to Trident-II SLBM for easing it up for the Americans.

The CIA did use Shamsi Air Base in Balochistan for drone strikes in FATA.
Pakistan ordered them out after the Salala incident in 2011.
Currently, there are no Pakistan bases being used by the US.
