The way government officials change hands its a small wonder we stay allies for anyone for a long period of time.

A president brings in an ally. They get to be buddy, buddy and then the President leaves and a new one with a new agenda takes his place. That agenda might not include the old ally or that ally might have want to go a differant path then the new President is willing to go.

Nobody can be friends all the time.

(Now that’s sick, even for them, as well as ineffective.)

Yes those evil clever terrorist living inside buildings. They are clearly cunning as foxes and evil as Satan.

(I hope I just insulted them a real good one!)

The taliban are scared there own people are turning on them helping us forces. People are no longer willing to hide them. We limit civilian casualties with spotters.People working with the CIA will literally place a chip on suspected targets and call in the droan. The reason Obamma isn't against this tactic is because it is much more precise than he knew. The attack occurred within 10 min of there family returning home there was someone on the ground that called it in.

Now heres the stuff the press doesn't tell you!

The CIA is equipping Pakistani tribesmen with secret electronic transmitters to help target and kill al-Qaida leaders in the north-western tribal belt, in a tactic that could aid Pakistan's army as it takes the battle against extremism to the Taliban heartland.

Its so bad its scares them because now they don't know who to trust and a terror organization cant hold together if it cant trust its own people.

Over the last 18 months the US has launched more than 50 drone attacks, mostly in south and north Waziristan. US officials claim nine of the top 20 al-Qaida figures have been killed.

Cant argue with results can you!

That success is reportedly in part thanks to the mysterious electronic devices, dubbed "chips" or "pathrai" (the Pashto word for a metal device), which have become a source of fear, intrigue and fascination.Everyone is talking about it," said Taj Muhammad Wazir, a student from south Waziristan. "People are scared that if a pathrai comes into your house, a drone will attack it

Seems to be working there scared to even allow people into there homes ultimately this will save civilian lives! Though admittedly because the taliban is scared they will kill people most of them probably Innocent.

For the tribesmen who plant the microchips and get it wrong, the consequences can be terrible. Last month the Taliban issued a video confession by Habib ur Rehman, 19. "They money was good," he said in a quavering voice, describing how he was paid 20,000 rupees (£166) to drop microchips hidden in a cigarette wrapper at the home of a target.Rehman said his handler promised thousands of pounds if the strike was successful, and protection if he was caught. The end of the video showed Rehman being shot dead with three other alleged spies. Residents say such executions – there have been at least 100 – indicate how much the drone strikes have worried the Taliban.

However this does show how effective droans are at killing taliban they expected they could sit in a mountainous region confident they were protected by there people only to find out that silent death glides above. Instead of fighting our way to the big guys we can now cut them out surgically.

Seems he may have died as well! This is Breaking News:

His aide said he was dead and the funeral has already taken place. He could be scared and want everyone to think he's dead. Maybe after seeing what he brought down upon his wife, makes him wish he was dead.

I'd say as he was dead the moment he joined that movement, as is anyone else who is part of it.
