Do you have any links that say we did this without their consent?
As it is, they are a well known ally of the United States, and a well known partner in the WOT.
Unless you can supply some evidence that this was done against Pakistans will, I suggest that you consider that this was done in coperation with Pakistan.
Can you find one link, quote, or news report that suggests this was "an act of war" from the Pakistani point of view? Because frankly their view is the one that matters in this case, not yours.
Pakistan's information minister condemned the attack.
Sheikh Rashid Ahmed told a news conference the US ambassador would be summoned to explain.
The Pakistani government wanted "to assure the people we will not allow such incidents to reoccur", Mr Ahmed said.
The US has about 20,000 troops in Afghanistan, but Pakistan does not allow them to operate across the border.
Pakistan Condemns Purported CIA Airstrike
NBC News reported that US and Pakistani officials said Predator drones had fired as many as 10 missiles at Damadola in the Bajur tribal region.
Zaman, who said three of his children were killed when his home was destroyed, told AP he was a "law-abiding" laborer and had no ties to al-Zawahri or any other militants.
"I don't know him. He was not at my home. No foreigner was at my home when the planes came and dropped bombs," Zaman said.
Doctors told AP that at least 17 people died in the attack, but residents of Damadola, a Pashtun tribal hamlet on a hillside about four miles from the Afghan border, said more than 30 died. They recounted hearing aircraft fly overhead before explosions in the village that were felt miles away.
At another destroyed house, Sami Ullah, a 17-year-old student, said 24 of his family members were killed and vowed he would "seek justice from God."
More than 8,000 tribesmen staged a peaceful protest in a nearby town Saturday to condemn the air strike, which one speaker described as "open terrorism." Police dispersed a smaller protest in another town using tear gas. A mob burned the office of a US-backed aid agency near Damadola, but nobody was injured, residents said.
