Pakistan's smoking problem

 A.F.P., quoted by Naharnet, reports that Pakistan cracks down on South Korean cigarettes smugglers:

The official had no precise figure, but estimated cigarette smuggling cost the Pakistani economy billions of rupees.
One can only wonder why, taxes being so important for the economy and all, don't Pakistani authorities crack down on bomb manufacturers and suicide terrorists handlers as well. It's not only their tax money that goes up in smoke, but their taxpayers too.
