It is good that US is killing these beasts, otherwise Pakistan Army would have to confront them after 2014.

M. Akhtar - if you like the Taliban so much, why don't you join them instead of sitting in the US? A.Shah Mashwani - the report said that these were Taliban commanders. So why are these people running free in Pakistan? They are the ones responsible for the death of innocents.

More problems because Nazir's group was not involved in attacks inside Pakistan. Change in game plan? People of Pakistan will pay the price. Poor, innocent and law abiding people.

Excellent job American, please increase your drone attacks and get rid of these Taliban rats. I think its about time to take on the real father of these Talibans, the Pak Military. Unless Pak Military is taught a good lesson, these terror rats (Taliban) will continue to terroririse us and Afghans.

The US must take ut-most care while attacking the Terrorists in FATA. The innocent people must be saved and the US should improve its intelligence against the Terrorists. Our own Army has failed miserably to counter these Terrorists and the only option left are these Drone Attacks.

From 7 drone attacks in times of mushraff to more then 700 attacks in time of democratic govt in Pakistan,america is still not successful,mean? common sense. dialogue is the only solution,when you know extremism is growing more and more,some strategy should change, instead of turning your country which has no links with 9/11 into Cambodia for no reason.Every time drone strikes,we just hear militant killed,can we just investigate whats really going on?
