Every drone strike turns 200 million Pakistanis more against the policies of US, Indians, Israelis, and occupiers of Muslim lands. In the end, it is for no one interests and illegal by international law.

Get rid of the terrorist - especially the "good terrorist" and the drones will magically disappear.
