Thousands flee bomb attacks by US drones


www.timesonline.co.uk

AMERICAN drone attacks on the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan are causing a massive humanitarian emergency, Pakistani officials claimed after a new attack yesterday killed 13 people.

The dead and injured included foreign militants, but women and children were also killed when two missiles hit a house in the village of Data Khel, near the Afghan border, according to local officials.

As many as 1m people have fled their homes in the Tribal Areas to escape attacks by the unmanned spy planes as well as bombings by the Pakistani army. In Bajaur agency entire villages have been flattened by Pakistani troops under growing American pressure to act against Al-Qaeda militants, who have made the area their base.

Rogue-governments are naturally blood-thirsty & power-hungry. The occult-world government supports tyranny, no matter how many people get smashed for doing absolutely nothing to provoke the wrath of the world.

Al-queda is a government-sponsored criminal-organization. Those bombers were aiming to kill innocent-people, who are tired of being enslaved in their own homeland or taken to far away torture-camps.

You're just on a roll with your anti-America propaganda, aren't you ??

War sucks and when innocent people get caught up in war that sucks even more. Unfortunately, it's not possible for perfect surgical strikes that only take out the bad guy. I'm sure everyone wishes that it were possible.
The sad fact is that sometimes innocent people die in war and they shouldn't but that doesn't mean we should stop chasing the bad guys.

al queda brought destruction to innocent people by hiding like cowards among them. They should act like men and put on uniforms and try and take on the world. If allah finds their cause just as they claim, they'll be fine


Just curious but why don't you have a problem with the terrorists who murder innocent men, women and children in the name of their god ?????

Are the 1m refugees escaping drone attacks or the degradation of basic human rights by the Taliban?
2nd line if needed.

American drones shouldn't have ever been there in the first place.

Nothing gives the US the right to conduct hostile operations in an Allied country WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION.

That IS TERRORISM. No means no, what don't you understand?

By that same logic Pakistan has the right to go and fire missiles at Washington D.C. should they discover a Taliban safehouse there.

Ridiculous hypocrisy.

These targeted drone attacks aren't helping the situation at all, instead they're aggravating America's key ally in the Afghan War by needlessly killing huge numbers of their civilians in order to nail one or two insurgents.

Way to push Pakistan over the edge, as if they don't have enough to deal with, what with the daily Taliban attacks on their cities and India breathing down their necks, America has to stomp around their borders and take potshots at insurgents as they please.

Somebodies got to get the bad guy. Who else is going to do it?

Come on, do you honestly think the US doesn't have their permission? Of course they can't say it publicly but if they really didn't want those drones there, they could shoot them down or do a number of other things to stop it.


That IS TERRORISM. No means no, what don't you understand?

Actually al queda and the taliban are terrorists.
They're just hiding like cowards behind innocents.


By that same logic Pakistan has the right to go and fire missiles at Washington D.C. should they discover a Taliban safehouse there.

They wouldn't need to because the US would actually take care of that safe house themselves.

What's the point of having a Constitution, and a set of highly defined morals and ethics and conventions on warfare if you're going disregard them every time the going gets tough?

Why not just abandon all rational morals and drop a Nuke on Pakistan?

Problem solved right? Utter ridiculousness.


Come on, do you honestly think the US doesn't have their permission?


Yes.


General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani said a raid last week into Pakistan's tribal border areas of South Waziristan region killed innocent civilians and could backfire on the anti-terror allies.

www.telegraph.co.uk...


This completely unprovoked act of killing is strongly condemned and the loss of precious lives is regretted, said the statement.

An army spokesman said in the statement that he blamed the Coalition Forces for this violent act and said that such acts of aggression did not serve the common cause of fighting terrorism and militancy in the area.

"A strong protest by Foreign Office has been lodged with Government of United States," said the statement.

www.chinadaily.cn...


U.S. missile attacks on suspected militants in Pakistan's northwest near Afghanistan are undermining the war on terror and "helping the terrorists," the Muslim nation's Foreign Ministry said Friday.

www.usatoday.com...

I guess the Pakistanis just like the sound of their own voice right?

What is Pakistan supposed to do, declare war on the United States? They're thinking rationally here and abiding the same morals and values the US completely disregards when it conducts these illegal raids.


Actually al queda and the taliban are terrorists.


And the sky is blue!

Thanks for the news flash mate. I'll try to remember one.


They wouldn't need to because the US would actually take care of that safe house themselves.


Just like the US prevented 9/11 from happening or the USS Cole bombing, or the bombing of the US Embassies in Africa, or the 1993 WTC Bombing or the Timothy McVeigh bombing.

America's incredibly adept at combating terrorism as we all know. Look how peaceful Iraq is!

You mean like the terrorists who don't wear uniforms and pretend to be civilians to hide while they purposely target innocent people?


Why not just abandon all rational morals and drop a Nuke on Pakistan?

Because that's not the agreement we have with them

Yes.

YEP

Their publicly condemning the attacks and privately helping find targets.


What is Pakistan supposed to do, declare war on the United States?

Shoot down every drone that enters their airspace would be a good start.


They're thinking rationally here and abiding the same morals and values the US completely disregards when it conducts these illegal raids.

Oh you mean like when they declared martial law after killing one of the presidential candidates?


Actually al queda and the taliban are terrorists.



And the sky is blue!

Thanks for the news flash mate. I'll try to remember one.

Sounds like you didn't know that until I mentioned it.


They wouldn't need to because the US would actually take care of that safe house themselves.

That's not what you said.
You said,
"By that same logic Pakistan has the right to go and fire missiles at Washington D.C. should they discover a Taliban safehouse there."

My point is still the same. If the US SHOULD DISCOVER A TALIBAN SAFEHOUSE within it's borders, the US would handle it.
