The relationship between Pakistan and the US has always been under speculations. Keeping in mind the most recent occurrences, we might as well say that Pakistan hates America; however, we are unsure about the legitimacy behind it all. It’s all a game of expectations. The US expects Pakistan to conform to a specific standard of living and cease harbouring terrorists. On the other hand, Pakistan expects the US to help with the overall development of the nation. Somewhere down the line, both the nations are eventually disappointed with each other. The anti-US sentiment has been flourishing in Pakistan since the last few years but how is it going to change the world and international relations?
