I agree to the fact that Pakistan perhaps should have remained silent on this issue. I don't like us picking side but what is said and if silence was to be broken then this is fine however statement should not have arrived yet.That part of the world will see conflicts for the rest of human history. There is no denying that nor the fact Pakistan has nothing to do with it.
Unfortunately the destabilizing of that region effects us.
Yes. Saddam was a poor ruler and although Iraq is definitely worse off than it was under saddam due to american war, his rule was also very negative and his countless wars were simply foolish.Saddam or Baath party saw Pakistan as a worthless counterweight which resulted in what they are right now.
I don't absolve the role of neighbors especially the law less lands and mountains and a very very hostile country which has hated us since inception but there is no denying that Iraq played a role in destabilizing Baluchistan to effect Iran... We also see such a thought process in UAE analysts.As far as destabilizing Balochistan is concerned. You need to see no further than your immediate neighbours to the west if you are infact looking for someone to blame.
