2 drone attacks kill 15 in Pakistan

Two suspected U.S. drone attacks in Pakistan left 15 people dead, including an anti-U.S. Taliban commander, multiple Pakistani intelligence officials told CNN Thursday.

The first attack, by a drone that fired two missiles, targeted 11 suspected militants in South Waziristan, a tribal area on the border with Afghanistan. Mullah Nazir, a Taliban commander, was killed in the strike, along with 10 others, intelligence officials said.

A second attack left four more people dead in North Waziristan, including Pakistan Taliban commander Shah Faisal, intelligence officials confirmed.

    Colonel Gadhaffi, a man who went AWOL from the Kings army and was trained in the art of the coup at a War College near London.
    As the anti-western King of Libya was away in Turkey, Gadhaffi overthrew the gov. of Libya and opened-up Libya to the infidels of the West.

    40 years later, NATO forces bomb communities filled with muslim citizens who HATED Gadaffi for allowing infidels to interfere with Libya. As Libyan citizens returned to their bombed-out homes, Gadaffi troops labled them as "rebels" and murderred them in cold blood.
    YES. An Israeli arms manufacturer and the Israeli MOSSAD armed and trained 50,000 men from neighboring Chad to assist Gadaffi. (news reports are still on Youtube)
