Pakistan Taliban on a renewed warpath.

Pakistan Taliban on a renewed warpath in Balochistan

https://asiatimes.com/2021/06/pakistan- ... lochistan/

For the Baloch people, especially hard-line separatists, more militarization will bolster their political and economic exclusion narrative, one that already views the province as a “Pakistani colony”, and fuel more anti-state violence that by association will target both Chinese and US interests.
:idea: This reads like a situation where it might pay China and the US to get together for a joint military intervention.
