This video from CNN was recorded a couple of years ago in which Hillary Clinton can be seen making a hard-hitting speech, blaming the USA's policies for the disastrous results in Pakistan. 

This speech of the former First Lady of the United States is an open and honest admission of USA's meddling in Afghanistan.

Donald Trump recently unveiled his new Afghanistan policy, putting forth serious allegations against Pakistan--urging the Islamic Republic to act against terrorists it was allegedly harbouring and destroy safe havens for militants.

The speech is not only a classical reminder of how the United States needs to acknowledge Pakistan's contributions towards the War on Terror rather than repeat its 'Do More' stance and also recognise where it went wrong in nurturing terrorists as well as militants.

A couple of days ago, relations between Pakistan and the United States took a turn for the worse when President Donald J. Trump unveiled his new Afghanistan policy that took more than a jibe at Pakistan.

Trump squarely blamed growing terrorism and militancy in Afghanistan on Pakistan, urging Islamabad to act swiftly against terrorists and safe havens inside its country.

“We can no longer be silent about Pakistan’s safe havens for terrorist organizations,” said Trump.

As can be seen above, the president did not mince words when handing out dire warnings to Pakistan or indicating where the blame lay.

However, Hillary Clinton's speech from a couple of years ago does tell us that there are saner voices within the United States of America--particularly in its Senate.

Pakistan must stand strong in debunking any more provocative statements to come from Donald Trump and the Foreign Office must not take such slights from the White House.

China is now more of a strategic ally than it ever was and it is ready to protect its interests in Pakistan. It's time to lean on another ally--preferably one that is emerging as a superpower.
