After US President Donald Trump read Pakistan the riot act, we ask whether this is effectively the end of the military alliance between Pakistan and the United States. An angry US President in his first tweet of the new year, said, "The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than $ 33 billion in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!" Now Pakistan says that they will respond in detail. Everyone is still waiting for this detailed response. For India, this is perhaps unexpected good news but given the close ties between China and Pakistan, the big question arises - does Pakistan still need the US in the way that it once did?
