Revealed: U.S. carried out 333 drone strikes in Afghanistan this year alone - more than the entire drone strikes in Pakistan over the past eight years COMBINED .

The United States carried out more drone strikes in Afghanistan this year than it has done in all the years put together in Pakistan since it launched the covert air war there eight years ago, it has been revealed.

The statistics, published by the U.S. Air Force and published by Wired’s Danger Room blog, show that there were 333 drone strikes in Afghanistan in 2012 alone, up from 294 in the previous year and 278 in 2010.

It is far more than an estimated 338 strikes carried out by the CIA in Pakistan since it began hunting down remnants of al Qaeda, the Taliban and other militant groups in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas eight years ago.

Lets call them what they are: bombings.

The focus has always been on Pakistan, not sure why. People murdered in Pakistan are said to be around 3,000 over an 8 year period. Only 41 of the 3,000 people slaughtered had been confirmed as ‘high-value’ terrorist targets... Unbelievable.

Can we then assume that they have murdered 3,000 Afghanis in a single year?

These countries are a testing ground for these sickos. They represent no threat to our national security, not even a little.

And this is the guy that got the Nobel "Peace Prize"... What a joke.

How many children have been killed in these attacks? America should be also mourning the dead children of other countries killed in mass murders like these.

I've seen the signs "God Bless Our Troops". Someone should start making "Goddess Bless Their Civilians" signs.

The West should just pull out of the war against terrorist in Afghanistan and Pakistan. End the drones. Let the Taliban and the radical islamic apostates win.

After years of bloodshed by western sons, it is high time to let the afghanis and pakis to deal with the problem themselves. There is only so much BS, lies, unsubstantiated allegations by the arabs that the west can take.

Let that idiotic paki president wannabe Imran Khan, the most virtrolic and vocal unappreciative fool that ever lived, delude himself that he can make peace with the Taliban and their way of barbaric life.

Let those 2 nations rot, if that is what they want. They had refused to speak up and had cowardly supported the beasts by burning american flags and chanting death to americans. Let them enjoy living in a tyranny, the way Syrians and Libyans, as well as Iranians had lived. Perhaps arabs enjoy subjugation of themselves, their women and their children by their own beastly kind.

The west should consider restricting more immigrants, regardless if they are brainy or not, from arab lands. They had chosen to let their own country go to rot by their own apathy and cowardice. No sense in letting them in, and be accused yet again of robbing their nation's best and brightest, and bringing in such attitudes infecting the west.

The moment to get real has come. It is time to wake up. Helping others had only gotten us brickbats. It is...time to walk away. The arabs had made a choice. I wish my fellow humans of the arab ethnic group well, and may they not regret their choice in days to come......
