When the last American troops departed from Kabul on August 30th, it meant not only the end of a 20-year campaign in Afghanistan but also the end of Western reliance on neighbouring Pakistan. In that time the country had been an infuriating partner that had helped nato forces with logistics and intelligence even as it provided a haven to the Taliban’s leaders. Now, perhaps America could wash its hands and walk away.

America and its allies have plenty of reasons to feel aggrieved. Pakistan is perpetually sparring with its neighbour, India—which is steadily becoming a vital regional partner for the West. It has close diplomatic and commercial ties with China, to which it provides access to the Indian Ocean, via the Karakoram highway and the port of Gwadar. It is home to lots of Muslim extremists. With a gdp per head that is just two-thirds of India’s and which has in recent years been falling, Pakistan might seem a sensible country to shun.

The eCUNTomist is a rag which specialises in down beating developing states, and one of its favourite targets is Pakistan. It's pure properganda.

The story of America and its lackey India. Despite hating and cursing Pakistan all day long they still need this country at the end of the day. If a anti-Pakistan media outlet like the Economist is having to admit this we know what the score is at the end of the day.

In the last 3 years articles from the economist
I haven't read 1 single sentence in positive light of Pakistan at all.
Only bad insults to critical analysis of every topic angle concerning Pakistan.
Yet Pakistanis keep sharing stories from that magazine. This is the second thread based on Economist article in this week.
