#2 Define 'work'. It might well work sufficiently well to humiliate the West and to destabilize any putative progress in Afghan land.

#3 Pak's Govt-Army has repor well-infiltrated by Radical Islam, as best illustrated or symbolized by Osama Bin Laden + family, etal. living for years in a Pak Army controlled region of the country.
The on-going US Drone strikes have left a sour taste in Pak's mouth as per alleged civilain casualties - in addition, it must be remembered that the GWOT is very much an [anti-Saudi]INTER-MUSLIM WAR/STRUGGLE FOR IDEO + MILPOL DOMINANCE, ESPEC AS PER THE SO-CALLED GLOBAL OR "ISLAMIST" CALIPHATE. PRO-SUNNI PAK WANTS TO BE A "GREAT POWER" IN ITS OWN RIGHT JUST LIKE SHIA IRAN.
Lastly, e.g. DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > PART COMPANY WID JAPAN FOR UNSC SEAT: CHINA TELLS INDIA.
Beijing has repor informed Islamabad that it is willing to delink or reduce Chin diplomatic, econ relations, etc. wid Pakistan iff Indjuh will delink or "disassociate" itself from Japan whom China proclaims to still have "historical baggage" against. MORE, MOST PERTS, BLOGGERS BELIEVE THAT UIGHUR/IMU/ETM-TROUBLED RISING CHINA WILL PRIORITIZE ITS GEOPOL RELATIONS WID THE SUPERPOWER US + WANNABE INDIA OER THAT WID ANTI-US, ANTI-INDIA, PRO-ISLAMIST = OSAMA, MILTERR PAKISTAN ANY HOUR OR DAY OF THE WEEK.
In sum, Pakistan is "hedging" agz the day when China may stop being its BFF + "Big Brother".
