    The bomber killed four civilians, including two women. Eight others were injured. That bomber killed more civilians than a typical drone strike.

      Well, a drone can be used again after a strike. A Pakistani suicide bomber is like used toilet paper – you can't use him again.

    This is a complete failure of Pakistani Intelligence Services. How can a terrorist simply pick up an explosives-laden vehicle and ram it into Pakistani military's fat backside? Pakistan needs to do surveillance and monitor its Muslims and mosques. New York does a lot of surveillance on Muslims and mosques in the NY state and such attacks have been prevented. Pakistani government should learn from New York.

      Pakistani ISI itself is a terrorist organization which supported OBL and other terrorist organizations.

      One country they should NEVER learn from is neighboring India where 50 million girls have been killed over the years due infanticide, femicide etc or simply girl trashing

    Hindu Goddess Kali's statue stands naked astride the inanimate body of the Hindu deity Shiva, tongue stuck out with blood dripping from fang-like teeth. She holds a noose, a skull-topped staff, a blood-encrusted sword and a severed head. Disgusting, to say the least. Would you want your kids growing up with such inspiration?

    We must use more drones to help Pakistan control its vermin. Apparently Pakistan is incapable of protecting and policing itself from itself.
