Now where are all those who were loudly complaining against the US drone strike on an abandoned school that had been taken over by militants in Waziristan ? Taliban have blown up hundreds of schools in KP and FATA.

@itp: They are doing all this because of American presence in the region and Pakistan's support for war on terror. As per Imran Khan there will be no such incidences of school burning and suicide attacks in Pakistan after Americans leave and he takes over the reigns of the country. So please wait till above happens and only then peace shall prevail in Pakistan.
