Two strikes carried out in 2006 had killed 98 civilians while three attacks conducted in 2007 had slain 66 Pakistanis, yet none of the wanted al-Qaeda or Taliban leaders could be hit by the Americans right on target. However, of the 50 drone attacks carried out between January 29, 2008 and April 8, 2009, 10 hit their targets and killed 14 wanted al-Qaeda operatives. Most of these attacks were carried out on the basis of intelligence believed to have been provided by the Pakistani and Afghan tribesmen who had been spying for the US-led allied forces stationed in Afghanistan.[\b]
If you’ve ever wondered why so-called ‘human rights’ groups are treated with such scepticism (if not disdain) outside the US and EU, see this statement from a New York Times report on the drone attacks: “Marc Garlasco, a former military targeting official who now works for Human Rights Watch, the international advocacy group, said the drones had helped limit civilian casualties in Afghanistan and Iraq, where the Air Force uses them to attack people laying roadside bombs and to attack other insurgents.

US Drones have killed 687 Innocents
Wonder if they even had spies in the first place, and if they did have spies as they claim, isn't that an invasion? This was not sanctioned or even wanted by Pakistani government. The US government is again, slaping around lower countries around and I wont be surprised until something goes down, becuase the US is going too far, once again. They are corrupt and need to be taken down.
For your information, I'm not an American and I wont answer any race or region related differences, cuz im only concerened about the innocents who are dying due to a failing government. A strong and large country doesn't carelessly slap around other much smaller countries, US is weak and pathetic and will not stand up to time. History shows that no country like that, ever lasts long.
If only the american government were slaped out of office and the people ask for a transformation and to have the government process start again from the start and build upon a way more strict and rigged system that will not tolerate any corruption or vile/corruptable and stupid people.
