Balochistan: Pakistan’s other war

Great documentary by Al Jazeera’s Islamabad bureau chief on Balochistan and their fight for autonomy from Pakistan.   An amazing look at the most misunderstood province in one of the most misunderstood countries.  Make sure to pay close attention to the section dealing with the killing of Nawab Akbar Bugti, the powerful tribal leader in Balochistan.  President Musharraf has been toying with the idea of returning to Pakistan and contesting elections, but could very well be tried again for his alleged role in ordering the killing.  It also has a really great soundtrack.
