pakistan's largest province baluchistan may not mean much to many people but among the experts it's known as a sick tyrant terrorism called bad and some of us lawmakers are even calling for its independence and their chicken explains the region and its importance. baluchistan. you may have never heard of it or maybe caught a glimpse of it in a hollywood blockbuster but the place is a hawk this nation for intelligence services from around the globe hotbed of insurgency home to various terrorist organizations kidnappings assassinations terror that's part of everyday life in baluchistan looking at its location as part of pakistan bordering afghanistan and the rand you may think well no surprise they enjoy his place but apart from being a dangerous place the lucious done is a big geo political importance where major world powers have interest and china one

affairs any bad anything that's coming up right now that the pakistanis don't like about our attitude is because by actions taken by their government as far as who could benefit from instability in baluchistan most experts say it's extremists of all kinds mainly al-qaeda and its affiliates and as well as the taliban they certainly have an interest in maintaining instability but some also see baluchistan is a key square on the geopolitical chessboard the united states knows they cannot compete with china economically or industrially so they have to stunt china's development through these various subversive tactics they're willing to engage with various terrorist networks that they've had for many many years if not decades in order to try to make the chinese stall in their economic development so according to you hype wars are real and creating instability is one of the instruments to gain advantage but wouldn't it backfire and that terror violence instability could it
