    The zionists who run the media had a wet dream writing this headline, didn't they?
    Yet another example proving Rick Sanchez was right (as if it wasn't clear already).

    WOW! You people are really don't get it. For every militant killed, two are recruited or radicalized. There is no way to win. We need to get off of oil and out of the middle east.

    Unfortunately, we have decided borders don't exist. We aren't at war with Pakistan so bombing people in Pakistan means we are using terrorist techniques and violating international treaties. Is this really what we want?

      Wow, what a brilliant strategy–"Despite the facts, I believe we can't win, so we should surrender to our enemies". That's always worked in the past, right? Once you give in to belligerents, they definitely leave you alone. Always.

    I assume you've never been to war with Canadians. Ask any one of them who is. They want us by their side.

    The only people angry about drone strikes are the extremists and their sympathizers. They die by the tens of thousands. We die by the ones and twos. Our victory is a result of our education and free thinking.. Things they hate so much.

    Wow, that's some good intel work, CIA! That captured "German" terrorist they've been interrogating has been singing like a bird and no doubt this is a result.

    Keep up the good work, guys!

    I'll bet you a 100 bucks, that if we yanked all our military out of all the countries of the world, except for the intelligence and humanitarian operations, nobody would even mess with us, because they know we have nukes, and they've got to actually come on land and attack to do anything or cause significant damage to our country. Now, what militant group is going to float up to our shores and start bombing? .. Be for real. Also, if we would have had our noses sharp before 9-11, none of that would of ever happened. We got bombed because we were getting lazy, and we slipped on security, and that's our fault.. nobody elses. Take accountability man.. that's what I'm told so you do it too.

    What the world is facing today is the war on economics in the name of religion and in my opinion the solution for peace lies within the true study of the religion hope we do so and god bless humanity.

    Drone strikes in pakistan,a country not at war with america and its loved by the real american,
    How about if mexico struck the governor's house in arizona while hunting for drug cartel's?
    I guess only real americans can see this as a logical stance and chalk it up to casualties of war,But there is NO war with Pakistan!

    To all the people on the msg board we must realise the biggest victims of all the violence created by the so called muslim terrorists are the large number of muslims themselves so many civilian lives have been taken by these ignorant illetrate brainwashed fighters if we ask the people of pakistan how much they suffer our media can play a key role to win the hearts of these people keeping in mind the literacy rate is low and we are lacking connection with these nations who we think really hate us which is not always true majority of the educated pakistanis admire united states and its ability to always stand up for nations around the globe in times of need we can wipe out Hate by spreading Love and that's the real message of all religious books either its torah bible quran yes we talk about religion but are we really practicing it accordingly god bless all and god bless america.
