Officials: Drone strike in Pakistan kills 4

A suspected U.S. drone strike killed four people in Pakistan's tribal region Thursday morning, Pakistani officials told CNN.

The drone fired two missiles at a suspected militant hideout in Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan, according to security and political officials, who asked not to be identified because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

The attack was the second drone strike in Pakistan in as many days.

Ten people were killed early Wednesday when a suspected U.S. drone fired two missiles at an insurgent hideout , about 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) east of Miranshah.

    They don't want to help ? We'll do it ourselves without the loss of personnel.

    Tin soldiers and Zardari coming,
    We're finally on our own.
    This summer I hear the drumming,
    Four dead in Miranshah.

    Gotta get down to it
    Soldiers are gunning us down
    Should have been done long ago.
    What if you knew her
    And found her masked and dead on the ground
    How can you run when you know?

    India poses a clear and present danger to the regional security of the world. ...to USA...NATO...Pakistan and Afghanistan people and armed forces. Hindu cult extremism is on the rise and fanning all terrorism worldwide. Indians are the bankers to and financing terrorism and supporting Talibans and Al Qaeda and harboring them in India. These terrorists are being entertained in the Indian parliament building in New Delhi where they are residing and then smuggled over to Pakistan in Indian Army helicopters. Shame on these Indians. Like the NAZI's they need to be stopped forcefully and immediately

      India has a lot of muslims. Therefore, some Islamic terrorism is naturally expected.

    I beg to differ. Call me when Obama decides to start a pointless years-long invasion in Iraq for no reason, that cost our troops countless lives, bankrupt our economy. Yes you are half right, GWB is to blame, not Obama.

    All foreign countries should attack USA for trying to be like hitler and take over the world. America is in debt and shouldn't be involved in foreign affairs.

      Not only invoking Godwin's Law, but wanting the USA to wiped from the face of the earth.
