ABSTRACT
For USA in its War on Terror, Pakistan has become a frontline state from being considered a failed state prior to the event of 9/11. The desire to join US War on Terror has led Pakistan towards grave consequences, these include economic, social, military and many more. No doubt there are serious and negative implications on Pakistan being partner of US. The achievements are far less than the losses Pakistan has to face. Pakistan was dragged into the War in Terror and now it has to face the consequences all by itself in multiple forms of militancy, extremism, terrorism, burden in economy, involvement of military, drone controversies, radicalization of society, unpopularity of the government and above all a terrorized society. Pakistan itself has now become a victim of terrorism. This paper is an attempt to analyse the capabilities and performance of Pakistan towards the War on Terror. It also thoroughly discusses the concerns of United States with regard to Pakistan's performance as its partner in War on Terror. Additionally, it also presents few suggestions to both the partners for a workable and cooperative relationship.
