This post was originally published on September 14, 2010, as US-Pakistan relations were taking one of their usual tumbles. It is being reprinted again as they take yet another tumble – this time Donald Trump inspired.

It was written in 1955. Yet, it seems as relevant to the relationship today as it was then.
