Drone strikes are necessary to attack terrorist bases in FATA.

Drone against Parliament's resolution???

This is more of a drone attack on resolutions of our Parliament. What is the use of such toothless white elephants if we have to live under such internal (all avenues of justice denied) and foreign drones???

Kill in waziristan, kill in balochistan & kill in lyari, and then say jiaaay bhutto, jiaay benazir and jiaaay zardari....and kill everyone else..liking democracy ?

Pakistan should maintain good relations with all countries including the US.However,US' designs against the countries of the region must be countered.Pakistan should publicly object to interference in Afghanistan beyond UN mandate,should not open NATO supplies,should not attend Chicago summit,lead Afghanistan by example,and prepare for tough times ahead rather than looking for shortcuts.

What does the Democratically Elected Pakistani Parliament of worthless thugs has to say about this attack? Pakistani Parliament cannot even protect the lives and property of citizens of Pakistan or the sovereignty of Pakistan from terror drones and International Terrorists such as USA. Obviously Beggars can never be Choosers.

Drone strikes are a critical weapon employed to crush terrorists' networks and safe havens in tribal areas.
