The way I see it,
If Pakistan is going to help America with the war on terror over in Afghanistan, and if they want Pakistan to be stable and strong enough to fight off extremists then it would be in America's best interest to help them in such a way to resolve their biggest dispute which is Kashmir.
A free Kashmir whereby the people of the region can choose their own destiny. In a case like this, Pakistan's massive army/military can focus solely on the tribal areas with reconstruction/security, and development to make sure that it does not become a safe haven for extremists. Most extremism takes place when their is little education, and after the Soviet-Afghan war in the 80s, America failed to build schools in the region which caused people to turn to the elements of guns, gangs, and drugs.
America's best shot at security for our portion of the Mideast begins with a Free Kashmir, but however, should not stop their.
HOW DO YOU SEE IT?
