If you are going to 'spell it out' for someone you could at least use the correct spelling and grammar.
Also, the US is NOT going to attack Pakistan for the simple fact that Pakistan could crush the Middle East in a matter of weeks. They have some of the best Intelligence and Spy agencies, Nuclear Warheads, Long range ballistic missiles (they can strike most if not all Mid Eastern nations), a huge airforce, the world's 6th largest army and control the supply routes into Afghanistan.
Any aggression/invasion against them will be certain destruction. Hence why Israel stopped shouting rhetoric at them. Anyway, Iran is a bigger target for them and more important to take out. Once they crush Iran and Syria then they might start pressuring Pakistan but it's highly unlikely that they will go beyond the occassional bombing and sanctions because if they declared all out war it would lead to the complete destructionof their allies and puppet regimes in the Middle East.

Also, China have tremendous ties to Pakistan.
'any attack on Pakistan is an attack of China itself'.
So now you have two nuclear armed nations with the capability to strike not just the Middle East and Asia but also the USA's Western Seaboard.

The US would never invade Pakistan, they have a large military and nuclear weapons. The US only invades weak nations who can't fight back because they know that their military would be decimated by a real opponent.
