@Bakhtiyar Ghazi Khan:

Your Prime Minister has not only made arrangements with the Americans but also with the Indian leader in his visit to him, asking for his spport for army indiscriminate areal bombings. You are on your own now in looking after those escaping from bombings including woman and children!!

Overwhelming majority of the citizens of KPK province and FATA condemn these drone attacks.

Most of the comments supporting drone attacks here are from Indian Hindus or MQM supporters, both of which are enemies of Pakistanis and Pukhtoon people.

If the citizens of North Waziristan decide these drone attacks are against their interests, who is anyone sitting in Karachi or New Delhi to say they are wrong. I condemn all these people screaming for the blood of Pukhtoons, shame on them.
