    The only people in the world that regularly use the word “miscreants” are Pakistani politicians and reporters – why is that? I suggest you look up the word sometime because no one else uses that as a substitute word to describe people who are committing terrorist activities.

    Can we please call these “mniscreants” what they are? They are terrorists. They are bad people. Please send more drones. Wipe them all out.

    These criminals deserve the title criminal because they work for anti state agencies trying to undermine Pakistan. I’m sure the police will send these cowards running away. They can only attack unarmed girls in schools and women in bazaars like the cowards they are.
