    US analysts say the results of a survey commissioned by Al Jazeera in Pakistan indicate the US war against the Taliban and al-Qaeda is so unpopular that US and Pakistani policy makers should change direction.

    The poll shows almost six out of ten Pakistanis cite the United States as their biggest threat.

    Al Jazeera's Nick Spicer put these numbers to US policy makers and analysts, who said the survey comes as a wake-up call.
