Drone attacks may be expanded in Pakistan

Senior U.S. officials are pushing to expand CIA drone strikes beyond Pakistan's tribal region and into a major city in an attempt to pressure the Pakistani government to pursue Taliban leaders based in Quetta.

The proposal has opened a contentious new front in the clandestine war. The prospect of Predator aircraft strikes in Quetta, a sprawling city

whether unmanned aircraft strikes in a city of 850,000 are a realistic option.

"If we don't do this -- at least have a real discus

Drones attacking a city with almost a million people?
Hold on, has a war on Pakistan even been declared?

Such a move would show the shallowness of the "just war" talk in President Obama’s disgraceful Nobel paean to Mars. Quetta is a city of 850,000 people, which is somewhere between the size of Detroit, Michigan and San Francisco, California. Imagine targeting a person or group with a drone-borne, 500-lbs., roughly 125,600-square-foot-effective-kill-area [pi x (effective kill radius of 200 ft., squared)] bomb in San Francisco’s Union Square, and you get some idea of the civilian death and injury we’re talking about. (Actually, this kill area is larger than Union Square…)

Just how many days after accepting the Nobel Peace prize?

Did unmanned drones somehow become not an act of war in some way?

This is unimaginable!

This is an illegal war, who's the terroist here?

Remember when George Bush gave a speech on 911?
He said today we were attacked by faceless cowards and now we are sending drones to attack a city with almost a million people?

How is this even being considered?

And we all thought Obama meant Afghanistan when he said that is where the remnants of Al Queda were.

Silly serfs like myself all thought the whole problem was the Taliban were helping Al Queda in Afghanistan.

Where will these elusive folk go next, Iran? Or do we have a good enough excuse already for the invasion of that country.

Where next do you think the MIC wants to go after Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran. Turkey maybe, how about Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan or any of the countries in the region.

Hell, we have been at War for so many decades it does not matter.

I swear if I would have asked when I was in high school, that we would be in this many wars, my history teacher would have laughed at me.

What a strange thing war has become. There may be boys in the building next to mine who are killing hundreds of people on the other side of the planet. The time for drone vs. drone is here. Somebody supply both sides, please.

Yes, it`s a very different war then what we grew up understanding what war is

Now it`s full of lies, whatever we know is the furthest from the truth

things have become so surreal

We have been trained with computer games.
Remote control war is here.
Talked about for 100s of years, well perhaps only 100.
Think about the new world order of Hitler going after his next
door neighbors with Stuka dive bombers.
Advanced Technology means the right to attack.
Perhaps we have some of the new world order people right
here in the good old US of A.
Smells like the suppressed new world order technology (NWOT)
developed by Hitler is still in charge
The NWOT developed under Hitler is the alternative carbon less
energy to put the green in our future but we are only told that
aliens possess what Tesla developed years ago or no one has
a clue of Tesla or how to make such energy or where the examples
are. Clue, Tesla documents are held back by the Illuminati and
the US government.

Well I would cautiously welcome the use drones of Pakistan city's in order to eliminate the enemy leadership . I say cautiously because to have the most effect and keep Civilian causality's as low as possible the strikes will have to remain precision . Just think of how Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was taken out in Iraq . The drones in use are one of the better weapons in the US arsenal when it comes to fighting in that part of the world they are relatively low cost to build and the pilot is out of harms way .

Think super smart V1 bomb and who sent them to London town as the V1.
A rag tag terror group only needs the weapons the CIA once gave them
to shoot down Russian choppers and aircraft at a rate to put the body
count super high the their favor.
Russia bowed out defeated by the CIA.
Without ground to air defenses the Pakistan terror groups are
at the mercy of heavily armed smart shot drones.
Still they need to be wiped out in hand to hand combat but
the Army way is to set of forts and sit and wait.
Hitler was developing the new world order technology so he
had a reason to fight against those that would cancel his effort.
Hitlers effort is now officially canceled by the little green men
who make Roswell their dream come true.
We are now fighting to continue the cancellation of the Tesla
technology as the security guards to Hitler's free energy legacy
to makes sure it can't go out to all nations.

Suicide blast kills 22 in crowded Pakistani market

DERA GHAZI KHAN, Pakistan — A suicide car bomb exploded in a market close to the home of a politician in Pakistan's most populous province Tuesday, killing 22 people and wounding 70 others. The blast in the Punjabi town of Dera Ghazi Khan was the latest in a series of attacks by Taliban militants avenging an army offensive against insurgents in the northwest. More than 500 people have been killed. The attacker detonated his explosives outside the house of the lawmaker, who was not at home at the time.
