What a shame that Gen Nadeem knows where the terrorists come from in Baluchistan (i.e. Afghanistan and Wazairistan) yet he or his men, or anyone else for that matter go after these brutal murderers

If you say so, please address the grievances of the people of Baluchistan. The problem is of political nature and its solution should be between the politicians of Pakistan and the people of Baluchishan. There should be no preconditions for talkes between the federal politicians and the Baloch politicians.
