Pakistan, US discord

The US special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan Marc Grossman, who was on a short but decisive trip to the region, had to return empty-handed as Pakistan army and the embattled civilian dispensation showed no signs of obligingness and held their guns for the much-sought apology. This snub is likely to get reaction from the US authorities, as there isn’t any dearth of issues that Washington could dangle before Islamabad and make it play to the tune. The drone that came crashing on Sunday is a case in point — and speaks high of the lack of coordination in the controversial war on terrorism underway in one of the hostile terrains of the world.
The point is both the countries are at pains in striking a realistic equation when it comes to bilateralism. Moreover, when they come to engage in terms of trilateralism, and that too with Afghanistan, it is as if they are reading from a Greek chapter.
The US and Pakistan for long have been interacting in a state of Utopia, and have been ignorant of ground realities. As US ambassador to Pakistan Cameron Munter said that the relationship should come to value the people-oriented aspect, it is in need of being realised in its true essence. The hobnobbing hasn’t helped and has rather acted as a detriment in estranging their relationship.
At a time when the US is preparing to pack-up from Afghanistan, this monkey wrench between Pakistan and the US has just complicated the entire scenario.
 The US cannot be at ease by offending Pakistan, and likewise no permanent peace can be restored until and unless the Americans leave behind guarantees for a serene Southwest Asia. The early they mended the fences, the better.
