The officials said the drone fired two missiles at a militant hideout.

    are there any Pakistani bloggers here? How do you feel about drones over America? Do you think they would help US as much as they help you?

    Think about it. Drones over America "taking out" meth labs and crack houses where "suspected" domestic terrorists do their dirty work.
    Got fraudulent bankster w/slick defense attorney? No problemo. Drone him down.
    Imagine the savings.

      While I know that this is what you want, drones taking out all you deem 'undesirable', remember one thing: someone, somewhere may deem you one, too.
      Be careful what you wish for.

    Acourse Banasy was correct last night. America is NOT a Christian Nation. America just claims christianity.
    Really, America has become like an overly obese man claiming to be rich while everyone knows he's just deeper in debt than the rest. The only thing *special* about him is that his belly button is an inny now.

      @Christian Nation and Fred, I know what other names you post under. America may be deeper in debt but still donated $700 million to your Pakistan. So, what's your problem? Keep the change. America is still the numero uno when it comes to charity.

      Why do people keep bringing me up?
      I said there is not official religion; the US isn't a Christian nation, but a secular one.

      RR, I am merely stating that there is no Official Religion...therefore, its considered secular.
      That the majority are Christian doesn't automatically make it officialy a Christian Nation.
      I am not re-writing history, and have no desire to do so.
      I am not neither agnostic, nor a fool.
      You're showing your good Christian side by insulting people.

    @ RR, That Christian nation you speak of is a man made Christian nation, not under God's rule.

    Its a no brainer that use of drones has been more damaging to whatever 'goals' we have in the region than an asset.

      When all your 'goals' are focused on terrorizing non-Muslims, of course the drones are very damaging to your 'goals'. And the whole world is very happy about that. Thank you, President Obama.

    It violate the 4th Geneva convention and civilian deaths continue inflaming the already increasing anti American sentiment on the ground.
    The quagmire we got ourselves into gets stickier.

      Well the use of drones to take out individuals sure beats the hell out of the B-52 carpet bombing we did in Vietnam except then you didn't hear too much about collateral damage because the North (man, woman and child) was the "enemy".......What's the difference? A drone takes out 4 militants or allied ground troops do it? Killing is a major necessity in war fighting.
