Unrest on Pakistan/Iran border

The BBC is carrying a series of  articles on unrest in Pakistan’s western province of Baluchistan. By some accounts this region is already a jumping off point for US operations against Iran. This from Syed Saleem Shahzad in the Asia Times.

A British newspaper reported recently that the Pentagon was contemplating the infiltration of the Iranian rebel group, the Mujahideen-e-Khalq (MEK), to collect intelligence. Asia Times Online sources say that the group will remain at its traditional base in Iranian Balochistan adjacent to Pakistani Balochistan, from where it will attempt to play the role of a catalyst to organize an insurgency against the rule of Islamic hardliners in Tehran.
