"At present, Pakistan is probably the most pivotal coalition partner in the war on terrorism. Its geographical proximity to Afghanistan and Central Asia gives it tremendous strategic importance. It is the world's second most populous Islamic state. The country's cooperation helps prevent the war on terrorism from becoming a conflict between Islam and Christianity. Pakistan also has an effective military and intelligence service and thus could serve as an important ally for anti-terrorist operations. Clearly, the United States would like to see Pakistan become a stable, developing state where religious based extremists do not find support or recruits. As such it could provide a model for other Islamic states and play a leading role in building regional stability and prosperity."
