It seems US drone strikes are being attacked in the press and all over once again. Pakistan's PM has come out declared he wants them stopped. He declared, " Pakistan considered these attacks against its sovereignty and pointed that the people also saw it as an attack on Pakistan’s sovereignty and against the people. He said the matter had been raised with the U.S. authorities."

Then there is London-based charity, Repriee and law firm Leigh Day & Co. They have filed papers with the Britain’s High Court. They claim that civilian staff at British intelligence agency Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) might be “secondary parties to murder”. They allege they provided “locational intelligence” to the CIA for its drone program.

Are Drone strikes done? What do you think? What about suing US citizens?

Well when you have several YEARS of the US asking time and time again for the Pakistan government to let us go in and get Osama or for them to arrest him, because we knew were he was, only to be stonewalled over and over again. This is what will happen. He was wanted internationally for crimes against humanity and yet they knew were he was and the US knew it.
Quite frankly Pakistan should be regarded as a questionable ally.

Honestly the British should give Pakistan and this scum lawyer firm a big old middle finger. to let them know what they could do with their lawsuit.

And that would be true, if Osama Bin Laden was a real person.
This whole business is shady.
How would you like it if russia started bombing your area, looking for some war criminal?

How is Osama not a real person? Really? That is a conspiracy based on an opinion. As far as the Russian comment. Russia would do it in a split second if they could, so don't think they would not. The Pakistan government was asked for years!...not days...not months....Years to do something about it and they made excuse after excuse. They are no ally.

I think people should keep it up and keep firing this cannon of justice for the world wide awareness of what is going on, and refuse to allow any judge to muzzle anyone either. I would get a bullhorn if anyone illegally tried to suppress my right to speak. I don't OBEY anyone. Judges are but mcdonalds worker servant of true justice and otherwise can muzzle their fascist thoughts, and any precedence in court that allows him to do so are CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY to begin with, with signature confessions. They're easily replaceable, or can be made so, with groups of citizens, half women.

AND YES, THIS IS MURDER. WAR IS MURDER TOO! ALL OF IT IS! POVERTY IS MURDER AS WELL!

Bin Laden was killed late at night in pakistan, but he was never given a trial and they quickly got rid of his body because muslims need to be buried as soon as possible after death, since when has the US army ever cared about upsetting the muslims? it was only last week they incinerated a bunch of korans.
No body, No pictures, No proof.

Russia was an example, I could've said any country but realise there are few countries worse than the US or UK when it comes to toppling foreign soveriegn governments.
Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, now they want Syria and possibly Iran in the future too? where does it stop? its madness!

You can say this is all speculation, and yeah maybe it is but it makes more sense to me than the official story.

Certainly sue the US government who appear to have completely ditched their façade that they are somehow morally superior to other nations. Due process anyone? Innocent until proven guilty IN A COURT OF LAW.

|Darn right it's murder. They cannot be allowed to continue acting like this with impunity - they're creating a hell on earth - and the UK government seems to be the great Satan's little helper. It's quite disgusting.

Pakistan has always been the renegade nation and has, until now, been ignored. Remember them selling nuclear secrets? Remember any action being taken as a result of that? But of course that was when they had an approved general in charge following a US approved coup. Now that period is over there is even less justification for the US blowing up anyone they fancy.

The US is not the world's policeman.....it is an out of control renegade nation.

The US and UK have lost their way as far as foreign policy goes - it started when we went to war with Afghanistan and tried to justify doing so on the basis of a criminal act (not an act of war) undertaken by (in the main) Saudi Arabians.

"He was wanted internationally for crimes against humanity"

No he was not... he never charged with "crimes against humanity", It was alleged by known liars bin laden had "involvement " in 1998 United States embassy bombings..

He was never charged with anything related to 9/11.. but was supposedly revenge killed extra judiciously anyway.

"innocent until proven guilty" used to mean something.. today it's "guilty because elite scumbags said so".. harken the days of old where the king had surfs eviscerated without charge or due process.

I do like the idea of suing low level lackeys as "secondary parties to murder”.. start suing the lifer bureaucrats, their families, friends.. anyone and everyone involved... muck up the courts and make life miserable for people involved with killing strangers for elitist douche bags.

It wont solve or change a damn thing, but at least will be entertaining to read about.
