WASHINGTON – Two out of three Pakistani journalists view United States drone strikes in the region as acts of terrorism, according to a new study conducted by Washington State University and Pakistan's Lahore University of Management Sciences.
Only 27 percent of Pakistani journalists said the US drone attacks did not constitute acts of terrorism. Six percent did not know. The study surveyed 395 Pakistani journalists and was supported by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
The unmanned drone strikes in the region began under the Bush administration and have continued unabated under the Obama administration. The volume and frequency of the attacks has intensified in recent years, according to collected reports.

The one and only way to defeat international terrorism is to outsmart it. We, however, are not smart enough to understand this. We continue to mess with other nations as though we were international cops or something.

These Paki "journalists" can spare me their sanctimonious bull$hit on "American terrorism". These are the same guys who applaud incidents like this: www.youtube.com...
Sometimes I wish Pakistan would fall to the fundies so India would have a reason to wipe them off the map.
I must imagine, should the proverbial shoe lie on the other foot, we would likely draw the same conclusion here...
