A US drone strike on Monday killed at least five Islamic militants in Pakistan’s restive tribal region near the Afghan border, security officials said. The strike targeted a compound in the Mir Ali area of North Waziristan, known as a bastion for the Taliban and Al-Qaeda. The drone fired two missiles, they said. A security official in Miranshah told AFP that five militants had been killed. “The compound was located in Khaderkhail village, some 40 kilometres (25 miles) east of Miranshah, which is the headquarters of the North Waziristan tribal district,” the official added. “This area has sanctuaries for all groups of Taliban and foreign militants,” he said. Another security official in Peshawar confirmed the death toll.
"Islamic militants"? What is the proof? Maybe the were innocent civilians read below (from an article by Ansar Abbasi – The News:
"A research and investigation report by the leading Stanford Law School and New York University School of Law in the United States has rejected Washington’s narrative about the use of drones in Pakistan and concluded that the strikes are counterproductive and damaging, kill innocent civilians, constantly terrorising the people of tribal areas, depriving children of education and even targeting rescuers.".
"Shahzad Akbar, Director FFR and Reprieve’s Legal Fellow in Pakistan said: “This report by US academics has established what we have been saying for years. Drone strikes are illegal, largely terrorising the civilian population in Waziristan and pushing them to militancy. The world cannot expect us to love the US when they are killing women, children, elderly and innocent civilians as indicated by this report. This new report will help poor victims in their quest for justice and due process.”. Regards.

You own these danger dufffers who are saluted by 5 million people. This licence to kill is granted to them by your people not by green card holders.
