    With a U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan on the horizon, India has been caught between cheering Washington's moves to rein in Pakistan's military and bewailing the possible fallout if America "loses" Pakistan to China.

    Unlike the United States, which can take it's guns and go home, India will have to deal with the fallout of the war in Afghanistan and Pakistani radicalism for the next decade.

    A resurgent Taliban and the return of a radical Islamic regime in Kabul could create a new safe haven for anti-Indian terrorist groups like the Lashkar-e-Taiba -- the Pakistan-based terrorist organization responsible for the November 2008 attacks on Mumbai.

    Some analysts fear that even as Islamabad works to bring the Taliban on board for a peace deal in Afghanistan, the Taliban leadership may help broker a settlement between Pakistan and various domestic terrorist groups like the Tehrik-i-Taliban, uniting the various jihadi organizations to focus on India, according to Indiana University professor Sumit Ganguly.

    Realistically, the United States won't cut and run in 2014, but it will reduce it's presence and convert it's counter insurgency operations into "counterterrorism plus," says Christine Fair, a professor at Georgetown University's Center for Peace and Security Studies.

    The recent move to freeze $800 billion in military aid to Pakistan is probably as much a signal to Congress that the State Department knows what it's doing than an indicator of any real plans to change horses midstream.

    But let's play what if.

    Despite concerns about China's rising influence in the region, losing Pakistan - an unlikely, if not impossibly bold maneuver -- could be the most profitable move Washington has made in the War on Terror since Sept. 11. And India could benefit even more than the United States.

    Pakistan is already in Chinese camp, dude. Look at the defiance with which they face the Americans. But what makes this interesting is that the recent terror attack in China originated from the territory of their all-weather ally (servant). Now it may not be GOP sponsored, clearly shows who gradually PLA is being called into POK and northernmost Pakistan. :azn:

    OT: China is already Pakistan's biggest ally, the US on the other hand is seen as an enemy by most.

    Or is it the other way round? Pakistan is the biggest allay of China. Coz in this relation of China-Pak, Pakistan is the small nation and is dependent on China for defense, Political support and Investments

    Pakistan was always Chinese ally...The so called friendship they had with US and vise-versa was like a benefit friend .. Both the countries needed something (its a different story that US didnt get anything out of it...)
