    On one bank is Afghanistan, and on the other is Pakistan. Since the patients are in Landi Kotal so it is probably the Pakistani bank which ws struck. Recommend

    They are waiting for the terrorists to be identified and then made hero by the Punjabis. Recommend

    Ofcourse there were militants. How else will the US justify the attacks. They can get away with killing anyone they want as long as they announce the person had links to terrorists.Recommend

    Americans would go to any length to ensure safety of their citizens and our PM and Army are just interested for strategic assets at the expense of their own citizens who elect them and give taxes to have a lavish lifestyle, Recommend

    The Nobel Peace prize winner Obama is still at it and killing poeple with out due process.I wonder if the Baluchis will start blockade of NATO supplies and withdrawl of their killing machines, that action might just get his attention.

    @naeem khan Manhattan,Ks:
    Hmmm, you say “Obama…killing people without due process”!!
    Somehow I must have missed the tens of thousands of “due process” Trials that must have been (secretly) held for those 30,000 plus Pakistanis killed by the TTP!
