A lot has changed for Pakistan in the last few years. It is no longer the strategic priority for the US that it has been for decades, most notably after 9/11. America's policy is drifting towards India (Pakistan's enemy), as its Cold War grows with China (Pakistan's friend). Meanwhile, the US has accepted that Taliban rule is inevitable in Afghanistan, where it has fought its longest war, and is pulling out its troops. Aside from dwindling leverage, Pakistan is dealing with a worsening economy, massive international outrage over its acquittal of the man who beheaded Daniel Pearl, and potential consequences from the new diplomatic alliances between Israel and Arab states like the UAE. Join Ali, Armin, and our guest Harris Sultan as we talk about where Pakistan goes from here.
