I wonder how much the ant state criminals get paid each time they destroy something in Pakistan to please their foreign masters. Matters little since the FC has done a good job of teaching these miscreants a lesson. They key is to build a big fence along the border with Afghanistan so that these criminals won't gain access to Pakistan. The fact that the majority of Baluch are pro Pakistani and are signing up in record numbers to join the Pakistani military must bother these criminals.
