    Original message US drone missiles kill 25 people in Pakistan tribal area home


    Edited on Fri Apr-22-11 03:27 AM by Bluebear
    U.S. drones fired 10 missiles at a house in a Pakistani tribal region near the Afghan border on Friday, killing at least 25 people, Pakistani intelligence officials said. The strike came a day after Pakistan's army chief denounced such attacks, and could further sour already deteriorating relations between Washington and Islamabad.

    Also Friday, hundreds of militants attacked a checkpoint in a northwest Pakistani district along the border overnight and into the morning hours, killing 14 security troops, officials said a show of insurgents' continued strength despite army offensives against them.

    The latest U.S. missiles hit Spinwam village in North Waziristan, a tribal region home to Islamist militants that target American and NATO troops in Afghanistan. The three intelligence officials said civilians were believed to be among the dead, and that several people also were wounded. The reported death toll was relatively high for an American missile strike.

    The U.S. rarely acknowledges the CIA-run missile program, meaning the usual sources for the confirmation of strikes are Pakistani intelligence officials, who speak on condition of anonymity because they do not have permission to speak to the media. That information from the region is nearly impossible to verify independently. The area is remote, rugged and dangerous, and access to it is legally restricted.

    ...while a thread about the possibility of dog ownership being banned in Iran inspires outrage and lots of comments.

    :D
    May the FORCE be with you!

    There's a lot of casualties and questionable accuracy in these strikes in Pakistan. Sending unmanned drones to fly into countries that we are not at war with to shoot and kill people from so far away that you can't even tell the difference between children and adults?

    fucked up.

    the left needs to be just as hard on Obama here as they were with Bush.

    If the Muslims didn't make it such a habit to have their fighters co-mingling with their civilicans then maybe their children would be safer.

    this has to be one of the most pathetic arguments you have ever made....
    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    Even for an America hating terrorist loving ball bag like Wee Wee it's hard to come up with constantly fresh bullshit.

    Even he has to retreat to the Code Pink anti war talking points sometimes.

    It does...but not in the way this DUmmie thinks it does.

    It just shows the blatant double standard of the Libtards...wars and military actions are A-Ok as long as it's "their guy" calling the shots.

    The only time they get outraged and want to protest in the streets for the most part is when a Republican is in office.

    that's right it is a stupid argument because it's a stupid idea to shoot missiles at villages halfway across the world because you think there might be a jihadist in there

    Oh and just as a bit of insight for the lurkers and our terrorist sympathetic trolls here...the way the terrorists work here in Afghanistan is they come here across a couple of passes from the area where the drone strike was for what is known as the fighting season. That is after nesh...the poppy harvesting season...gotta pay for the guns and bombs somehow right?

    Anyway Waziristan is where the families of the terrorists live while Daddy or Uncle or brother is off killing infidels from April to October. Then just before the snow closes off the passes...the terrorists come back home and get ready to do it all over again next spring.

    Unless that is...we catch them in the villages where they train...recruit and live in across the border in Pakistan and blow them up with some rockets.

    These aren't innocent civilians getting blown up. They are family members and in some cases jihadist's in training. The fact they got blown up right beside their bomb making I.E.D. planting relative means jack to me.

    It just reduces the number of potential people being sent to blow me or another soldier up.
