Drones attacks ! As long as Bilawal House, Karachi & Bhutto ancestral town in Sindh is safe, who cares about tribal people dying in attacks.

1- I told you dal khors not call it Drone, it is (Tair ul Ababeel). 2- Tell them will send Tair ul Ababeel back on Wednesday afternoon.

We received three F16 jets from USA yesterday, but we couldn't use them to protect our national sovereignty, independence, and dignity. Just as they say, 'Beggars cannot be choosers'. We should rather refuse weapons handouts, and all sorts of handouts for that matter. It is also an indication from USA that Pakistan can expect more Salala like incidents in the future. Pakistan should forget about any cooperation with USA in the future and should not even think about reopening NATO supply route.

If the drone attack continue what for the USA general coming to Pakistan,still the brain back in their think tanks not working.Paying 5-6 times through west supply,forces reserves reducing,fighting season approaching,let us see how our brace/govt cash-on in the interest of country after such a long stand off.Keep supplies stop three month problem will be automatically resolved by USA,DON'T BE PENNY WISE £ FOOLISH. Remember Gen ZIA'S remarks "peanuts".
