9 militants in Pakistan killed in suspected U.S. drone strike, official says

(CNN) - A suspected U.S. drone strike killed nine militants in Pakistan's tribal region on Sunday, the second such attack in 24 hours in the region, a local government official said.

The drone fired four missiles at a militant compound in Wacha Dana, a village in South Waziristan near the Afghanistan border, the official, Javed Marwat, told CNN.

South Waziristan is one of the seven tribal provinces. The area is thought to be a safe haven for militant groups fueling the insurgency across the border in Afghanistan.

    In the 70:s we(USA) sold wheat to the soviets, actually it was storsge surplus wheat that our gov was buying from farmers and paying a few politicsl insiders millions to store
    The Dept of ag had told plant, farmers had super crops that threatened to waste prices.
    The sale made instant multi millions gor our IMPORT ECPORT BANKS, ON paper but went to futures and indide politicsl investers.

    Funy deal even back then was done with norrowed mony and whrn investigated years later the sellers were private and sold it cheaper than what Dept of Ag paid

    mony feals like this have always gone on, and whest belt seators used to oen the eheat farms

    PAKISTAN !!!!

    Since Sep 11, 2001, over 200,000 Pakistani civilians, armed forces personnel have either sacrificed their lives or wounded; more than 3.5 million have been displaced while the country has lost over
    US $ 1 Trillion due to terrorism.

    Despite sacrifices, Pakistan was still engaged in 'the war for world peace”.

    No other country has even come close to selflessly sacrificing so much.

    Pakistan, no one can ever repay you enough for your contributions.
    You deserve a permanent seat in the UN Security Council for your contributions to world peace and emergence of a new world order. We welcome your rise as the new regional military power. God Speed.
