PAKISTAN could collapse within months, one of the more influential counter-insurgency voices in Washington says.
The warning comes as the US scrambles to redeploy its military forces and diplomats in an attempt to stem rising violence and anarchy in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Pakistan also desperately needs America's arms deals to counter India's large-scale modernisation programme with Russia.
They don't need America, they have China.

Oh just you wait, Obama will fail forward and send more troops in Pakistan, maybe even call for a draft for that or pull a false-flag a few weeks after Pakistan collapse to have a reason to go there.
He said he would go there, HE WILL.
That relationship constitutes a piss in the ocean compared to the extent of America's arms sales to Pakistan.
Without it they will wither away and succumb to the vastly superior Indian Force and the insurgency problems plaguing their borders.
Right, my friend. However, I'm afraid he will not have to use a false-flag, this is a republican thing, remember ?
Anyway, for as long as terror-preachers will have the control of the religious schools in those countries, no wonder why 14 year-olds blow themselves up at checkpoints...
Anyway, who cares if Pakistan fails and their nukes are taken out of the country?
Why would we care? Do we care about Africa? No? So why would we care about Pakistan and Afghanistan? Because this is big bucks for the US militaro industrial complex? Yep.
Yep. American foreign policy backfiring once again.
So you're perfectly fine with the idea of actual, ready to launch Nuclear weapons falling into the hands of Islamic Fundamentalists?
That why I said, ``take out their nukes`
no, i'm not that crazy to let them fail with nukes in their hands.
They're not lying around in the open or in some backwater village where Special Forces can blow them up.
Why do we have to be responsible for creating another failed state?
The American Invasion unleashed the fury of the Taliban on Pakistan and no you're content with just packing up and moving on and letting Pakistan deal with the mess the US started?
I don't believe they need so many troops to keep insergeants at bay and keep the poppy conveyor flowing. With an estimated 100 thousand on the ground, international forces in Afghanistan by July we could be looking at a few search and retrieve ops.
Good Ole mighty where have you been.
Pakistan created the Teliban and still gives them orders today,
They just want to string this crap along while our good men die.
