If only those people were double-tapped by drones before they had the chance to set the guy on fire.

Because they've lost 10's of thousand soldiers and civilians in a cause that benefits you but is against their national interest.

Do you mean the "War on Terror"? I'm pretty sure a lot of those losses could have been averted had they not harboured the likes of Osama bin Laden in their country, which by the way, does not benefit us or our national interests in any way.

Please explain how they would have lost a lot less lives by not doing what you claim they did?

Didn't most of their deaths come from fighting the likes of OBL? Isn't that why they lost thousands of soldiers in fighting on the NW Frontier? Didn't the Pakistani Taliban started bombing cities and govt offices, police stations in retaliation for the army fighting them in NWFP? If anything it cost them a lot more lives, not less.

Who captured and handed over to the US almost every major terror suspect? Pakistan did. Some of the names include KSM, al Libi, and abu Zubydah

Pakistan isn't going to completely roll over and have no say in the future of the region They aren't going to roll over knowing the west will just get up and leave when they feel like leaving Pak to deal with this mess, just like in 1980's. They have to protect their own national interests too. But Pakistan has shed more blood in this war than any other nation. This is why they are considered an ally, which was your original question.

The last thing Pak wants is India setting up shop on their back door. Karzai spent years in India before returning to Afghanistan to assume power. India has spent Billions$$ in Aff to build Infrastructure and prop up the govt.

Pakistan accuses India's RAW of backing insurgencies in NW Frontier Provinces and in southern state of Balochistan. Pakistani media also accuses the US and Israeli intelligence of funding and supporting terror networks in these regions. Its a very complicated and fluid situation.

Fending off the Taliban is in their own national interest too, and not against it as your earlier post suggested.

They still have some explaining to do for giving OBL refuge in a secret compound.
