Drone strikes kill 18 in Pakistan

Tensions rippled through Pakistan's tribal region Saturday as three drone strikes killed 18 people and the government continued to block a NATO supply route into Afghanistan.

Pakistani intelligence officials said 10 people died in one drone strike targeting a militant hideout, four people died when a vehicle was struck, and four others were killed when another hideout was targeted.

All three occurred in the Data Khel area of North Waziristan.

    Mmmm, so you disagree? It's true. Virtually every "Christian" leader from every country preaches their young men onto the battlefield by offering them "heavenly life" if they should be killed. Surely you know this to be true.

      I know of patriotic duty, in defense for way of life, in defense of others, in support of democratic idealogy, in defense of our alliances with other nation, love of countrymen and friends, defend against enemies. BUT NEVER TO ASSURE ONE'S SALVATION. Are you an American, Phil?

    Mmmmm. I never doubted those things. I was simply pointing out the hypocricy. Many Americans make fun of the "Muslim virgin" reward, when their own religious leaders say the same lie: that dead soldiers go to heaven because they died for their country. As far as my being an "American", show me America on a map. It's not there. North America is where I live. So yes, I'm an American. If I were born in and ived in Peru, I would still be an American. How arrogant that so many think only the USA is America. Not to mention it simply doesn't make sense.

    • Mmmm....

      You speak of America's geography awkardly. There is no such promises made by the religious. Our Leaders are civic. Our Nation is under God. War is viewed as civic, patriotic duty not religious. So Phil, you are not American...you picked an ugly name!

    Your sort of right Phil. This is a belief of the illiderate enemy forces we are fighting! Really. They believe virgins are waiting. I know its not true. 80 percent of the Taliban don't read and do not know the outside world. Another interesting comment by someone is true! We do teach our young battlefield forces about honor, country, and the blood we shed in war!

    Phil regardless of religous beliefs. Do you agree in suicide bombers? More than half our casualties are from suicide bombers. Do. Americans commit suicide in War? That's why I'm critical about the virgin stuff! Do we kill ourself to go to heaven? Or do we go down fighting? What side are you on Gen Bad or USA? Bin Ladden is now cornered.

    Phil you are with General Bad! You know that terrorist suicide bombers is a critical situation when they are illiterate and promised 100 virgins! We don't go to war and commit suicide to go to god! I agree with last statement.
