I am sure US is not silly/overconfident. There is very thin line in between Aggression & overconfidence.
In my opinion, the US continues to suffer after 8 years of Barack Hussein Obama,,, while I'm sure we can both agree, that we might wish President Trump had been more discreet in airing his concerns?? I hate Terrorism,, the taking of innocent lives by ANY regime intentionally,,, look at ISIS, look at "Daniel Pearl", we could go on and on??
So while I'm sure you wish the US had been more consistent, I would say the exact same thing about Pakistan,, (how did Bin Laden live right under foot??)
So here we are,,, President Trump has "thrown down the gauntlet" so to speak,, its not tolerable, and we need Pakistan to be a more consistent partner in the war on Terrorism!
So while you may take comfort that both China and Russia seem willing to "rush in" to fill the gap?? I would remind you that Russia continues to support state sponsored terror and genocide in Syria/Iran, because they want to foment violence and undermine US/Western influence?? as well they have invaded both former Soviet Georgia and Ukraine for their own self interest
So I did like several of your posts, and to be honest, I share your frustration,, (George Bush was "winding down" our operations in Afghanistan, when Obama came in, he started a veritable "brush fire", that to this day refuses to be "put out") The US like Pakistan both seem like "ping pong balls" these days, bouncing one direction, and then the other?? due to political changes..
Hopefully all this public spectacle will result in Pakistan and the US getting our act together to combat terror, and restore peace to the region, sadly US and Pakistani relations are at an all time low,, and that is disappointing to me as well?
