US exasperation with Pakistan is mounting, with sharper warnings to it to curb the Haqqani group. The need to repeat such warnings in public also suggests a degree of helplessness in compelling Pakistan to do America's bidding. Pakistan's tenacious resistance, even when cornered on an issue of such vital concern to the US, flows from its calculation that it still retains enough room for defiance.-Comment
The actual position is very difficult to guess . But what i could guess is that Pakistan will internally keep on helping US and at the same time making a defiant face to show it to its public . This must have been discussed with US and secretly agreed to .Also Pakistan is sitting very close to China and some amount of brave face it must have as it has good understanding and close friendship with that nation .
