    So this was a Sunni bomb set to kill Shiites. Sort of like Northern Ireland bombings between Catholics and Protestants.
    Crazy stuff, man.

      Not really... Pakistani majority Sunni are killing Shia minority – Pakistanis butchered 90+ innocent Shia in January, and then massacred 60+ innocent Shia people in February in this year. This is just like Mohammed carrying out genocide of unarmed, innocent Jews in Banu Quraiza.

    Genocide is the way of life in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

    This is exactly why drones are needed. If drones had gotten rid of these Pakistani Sunni terrorists, there would not have been so many deaths of innocent people. More and more drones over Pakistan is the solution.

    If you want this kind of thing to be a daily event in America, just do nothing while our politicians flood the country with immigration from ultra-violent societies like Pakistan, the Middle East and Latin America. Whatever problems are present in America sure as heck won't get better with immigration from ultra-violent 3rd world hell-holes. Obama likes to make a show of how concerned he is about our safety. Let him prove it by sealing the borders, deporting all illegals and putting a moratorium on all new immigration to America.

      It's not going to happen, and not because you think he's a bad President. He's also deported far more illegals than previous Presidents, so cut your whining out.
