3 killed in suspected U.S. drone attack in Pakistan

Pakistani intelligence officials say a suspected U.S. drone attack in Pakistan's North Waziristan district killed three people and injured two others.

The attack took place Thursday near Miranshah, a city in the volatile tribal belt of northwest Pakistan, near the Afghan border.

The officials said those killed in the attack are thought to be linked to the Haqqani network, a militant group based in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Last month, a suspected U.S. drone strike killed two suspected militants in the region.

    Macro Mouth: you'll never what we do, because basically it's none of your business *what* we do.

    And there are two of banasy's pool boys:
    1) Paul, and
    2) A character made up, much as Ahkmed and Sheriff whatever were made up characters.
    Stop it, child.

    Seriously man, show your therapist what you've been posting. Print it out and bring it to your next appointment. If he's been properly educated and certified, he'll tell you it's not normal.

    Hey Obama – You just lost my vote in 2012 !
    Paying our troops enemies ( commander-in-chief and President Obama and the White House advisers know and have proof Pakistan supports and facilitates Islamic terrorists to maim and kill American troops and scores of innocent civilians) any amount of money or military aid of any sort makes the US congress, senate and the White House nearly as culpable as Osama bin Laden and Khalid Sheik Mohammad who facilitated, supported in letter and spirit and assisted in carrying out the deaths of nearly 3,000 on 9/11. Our troops are fighting for us abroad trusting that we will support them, not their potential killers. How on earth can the politicians forget that and play politics with the lives of these brave heroes. America – get ready to vote every single one of these traitors out of office for giving Pakistan billions so that they carry on killing our troops against all signed agreements as an ally.

    Pakistan has been playing this game with us for a long time. Claiming to be on our side yet harboring all sorts of terrorist groups. People at the top of our military KNOW this yet we go on with the sharade. It's good to see that. despite Pakistani objections, we're going in there and getting them where they live and re-arm themselves. No need for boots on the ground....just keep up (and ramp up as needed) the drone technique! But at the endo of the day, we need to come to terms with the fact that we're really not going to change any tribal and religious infighting no matter how hard we try. This is a primitive, violence based culture where religious beliefs govern peoples lives, so whatever we do or say nothing REALLY changes as the result of our military efforts.
