Gohmert Discusses Merits of a Free BalochistanSalem-News.com
Bullet ridden bodies were discovered in suspected mass graves in Pakistan's military controlled province of Balochistan.
(WASHINGTON, DC) - Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) spoke on the House floor about Balochistan, Pakistan. He read an article of mass graves being discovered in Pakistan's military - controlled province of Balochistan - and the silence of US Secretary of State John Kerry.
Of course Kerry's silence is fairly consistent with most U.S. officials when it comes to out of the way places like Balochistan, the scene of Pakistan's "dirty war".
Gohmert suggests that a free Balochistan could reduce terrorist activity in Afghanistan. He says Baloch people supply the Taliban.
Gohmert quotes from an article he read and said:
"It would be inconceivable that any US official, let alone a Secretary of State, would host a delegation from Serbia the day after mass graves were discovered in Srebrenica in 1995, yet on Sunday, a day after bullet ridden bodies were discovered in suspected mass graves in Pakistan's military controlled province of Balochistan, Sec. of State John Kerry was toasting a delegation of Pakistan security officials at the State Dept."
Balochistan and Human Rights officials say 169 bodies have been uncovered so far, Pakistani officials put the number at 15.
"Victims and families of Baloch youth, disappeared, and who are feared to be among the decomposed bodies being unearthed from the graves, had oped that Kerry would raise the issue with his Pakistani counterparts. Instead, they heard Kerry say to Pakistani's, "We're really delighted to have you back and look forward to our continued conversation." America looked the other way in 1971 when the Pakistan army slaughtered a million of its own citizens in what is now Bangladesh."
