#1 Those drone attacks must really be working good for them to have so much concern about them.
If our President didn't lead from behind, we would tell the Pakis no dice. And we would end all shipments through their territory and cut all funding until they start behaving like an ally. It's unbelievable we let a little pissant country like Pakistain blackmail and extort bribe money from us in this way.

#3 Besides on-going attacks agz local Shias, etc. Iran must recognize that BFF Pakistan stopping the overland flow of supplies into Afghanistan only increases the possib of war between it + the US, so Iran BFF Pakistan isn't really doing Pak BFF Iran any favors.
The only advantage I can see is Iran continuing to "shape the battlefield" [Multi/Trans-Regional] in anticipation of major US-Iran ground war, + GETTING PAKISTAN TO HELP SET UP ITS OWN DESTRUCTION AT THE HANDS OF IRAN.
The Mullahs have times said that they will do what is necessary to defeat any foreign invasion + occupation forces, espec one that is US or US-led, + they will do so wid or widout the sovereign consent of its Muslim neighbors.
