    That's not an Army. That's a mercenary force. Hit them hard. Do unto those, what they do to you, 10 times over.

    Think you might like to take a look at Francesca's blog. She was very active on this issue during 2011

    Italian journalist Francesca Marino expelled from Pakistan | Dec 06 2011

    Do you have a strong constitution ? after a while the stories of abductions back to back can make you puke.

    It's worse than Xianjiang : ((

    USA designates Baloch Liberation Army as terror group

    This came as a surprise. This has to do with getting Masood Azhar listed.

    Another speculation

    Balochistan Liberation Army declared terror outfit: US, with eye on Taliban peace talks, hands Pakistan big win | FP | Jul 03 2019

    Those leaders who do hear of this designation will know the truth; that this is yet another effort to appease the Pakistan establishment into ending its support to the Taliban, and let the peace process go into reality mode.

    ^I'm not convinvced of the story he's telling. Sure, Baluchis & Pashtuns have their grievances but i don't see those as the trigger in this instance here. If the problem is at the border it stems from the border and not something else. Location matters.

    Paks closed the border with Afghanistan due to Corona. The Afghans could not afford to close their borders so the people are taking Pakistan border guards to task.

    It's an interesting dynamic considering border locals on either side of the Durand line do not recognise it. Draw a line there and enforce it this is what you will get after some time : )

    I see these people as the equivalent of lockdown protesters. Posted a video earlier in another thread of Pak cops being chased by stone throwers for enforcing restrictions at a mosque in Pakistan.

    How long has the border been closed now, over two months, people are going to be pissed.

    The Paks are building a fence too.
