Sultan Ahmed | 10 years ago | Reply As a print and electronic media is witness government of Pakistan repeatedly requested to the united states that drone attack be stopped forthwith but it is till continuing. many times America refused to stop the attacks. what is the reason behind it no one know but the fact is that there is some thing behind it. Innocent people including women and children are being died, who is responsible for that,government has been crying but their efforts remained fruitless.
