Suspected drone strike kills 2 in Pakistan

A suspected US drone strike killed two people in Pakistan's tribal region Monday, intelligence officials said.

Two missiles hit a suspected militant hideout in Khush Hali, a village in North Waziristan, one of seven districts in Pakistan's volatile tribal region bordering Afghanistan, two intelligence officials said. The intelligence officials asked not to be named because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

This is the third suspected US drone strike in as many days in Pakistan's tribal region and - based on a CNN count - the 65th this year.

    US need to clean up the area infested with thugs from around the Islamic country, mainly hoarded by Pakistan for its strategic mean, not able to win through straight fight or diplomatic means.

    I say sandwich them in that area between NATO forces and Pakistani forces. That would require Pakistan doing something against their eventual enemies, but that's not happening. The Pakistan military is scared of Al Queda.
