    This sounds like a news item I have read so many times - Drone killed a bunch of terrorists in Pakistan. Pakistan needs to stop supporting, nurturing, training and harboring terrorists.

      you two should stop drinkin your nightly hate all christian juice
      ...obama's tears were fake if not insincere because of his stance against life of the unborn and failing to reconized and value life of children victimized by the holocaust of abortion...to add further insult and injury to unborn children, he entrenches their demise with
      obamacare mandates and penalties...how is that different from callous newtown gunman who murdered defenseless unarmed children...is not the life and its essence which existed in those classroom not the same which exist of the womb? our president have chosen to embrace these evil herodian
      principles...there is no dispute about that...declaring unborn and its life a disease that need to be erradicated...

      Rascal, I am don't hate Christians, I dislike hypocrisy.
      And, if you want to bring up something that was completely unrelated, I'll play:
      Women who obtain abortion represent every religious affiliation. 43% of women obtaining abortion identify themselves as Protestant, and 27% as Catholic; and 13% of abortion patients describe themselves as born-again or Evangelical Christians.
      That's 83% Christian.
      So please, what were your words again?
      Cut the nonsense.
      President Obama is sincere.

      spare me the shanigans about denomination for it has nothing to do with this issue of respecting the dignity of life other than these people are not practicing their faith, rejecting its principles, and may have even have poorly formed conscience and are unchurched...people now days use religious denominations more like a regional race card rather than a core of beliefs...how else can public officials and politicians profess a faith and then vote contrary to it wittah straight face...

    Pakistanis are addicted to terrorism. Pakistanis keep producing terrorists and the US has to send in drone to clean up their mess. This is a nuisance expense for the US taxpayers. In spite of receiving billions in aid, the only favor Pakistanis are returning is more terrorism.

    Pakistanis have been busy training terrorists and terrorizing many countries: London bombing, Time Square bombing, murders of Jews in France, etc. There is no mention in the news that it was a US drone. Israel and UK also have their own drones. Many countries which are terrorized by Pakistanis have either publicly admitted that they have drones or are suspected of having drones. It could have been any of these countries which may have carried out this drone strikes on these Pakistani terrorists.

    The USA leads the world. Even when it comes to domestic terror attacks. No other nation on planet earth has more domestic terrorist attacks than the USA.
    IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN INTERNATIONAL TERRORIST (which you can easily describe) and a 'domestic terrorist', seek medical attention. Your brain is broken.

    And the domestic terror attacks are from own Government. Those who choose to point fingers with out doing even one hours worth of research have no business in the debate. Moreover, are only here to point fingers ... Happens daily, right here!

    Another ones gone, and another one gone, and another on bites the dust. The only thing that could be more lethal to these groups is education, maybe they should be dropping books as well. That would really freak them out. If Pakistan were doing its job and not allowing these groups to operate in their country, this could all be avoided. So would trying to kill a little girl because she wants to go to school. The bombs aren't going to stop and shouldn't until they're no more targets.
