in response to reader comment: Wishful Thinking

Mr.Katiyal has made an excellent analysis. No one can be under an illusion that this is the last straw on the camel's back and somehow the US will settle accounts with Pakistan due to it's brazen protection of Bin laden.

For more than 40 years the US has overlooked every criminality of the Pakistani state and it's military Establishment , even when they have been against the interests and values of the US itself. When Pakistan went on a genocidal spree in east bengal in 1971 killing 3 million people and expelling 12 million, there was not even a wimper of protest from the US and the whole matter of shrugged off. Pakistan traded nuclear technology with all and sundry including North Korea, still it was forgiven. Pakistani army has been nurturing Jihadis and terror networks , which wreak mayhem in many parts of the world, especially Afghanistan and India, that is also forgiven. pakistan army has been giving sanctuary to the Afghan taliban, that is also forgiven.

Given 40 years of the US turning a blind eye to Pakistan's genocidal and criminal ventures, even when they have hurt the US, which fool is going to believe Pakistan's cozy sancturay for Osama Bin laden is going to invite washington's wrath.

The US will continue to bribe Pakistan with billiions of $$$ for no apparent or commensurate benefit . Like a masochistic wife with an abusive husband, the US will continue to humour Pakistan
