    The USA has made it clear that it will continue drone attacks until you take the responsibility to eliminate the terrorist within the tribal territories – it has also expressed regret over the border incident acknowledging mistakes were made but making it clear that an unconditional apology is not warranted since Pakistani troops fired first. All the constant chest thumping has put Pakistan in the awkward position of having to come up with a solution that gives Pakistan the appearance of victory without any substance – good luck with that.

    Drone attacks should be unacceptable to any self respecting country… As should the use of your terrritory to attack your neighbors
