    You do realize we are currently doing drone attacks in Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen in the name of killing Al Queda. The problem is we kill many more civilians than Al Queda with these strikes. Well that's not the only problem there are few others but I won't go into that now. The US military on orders from president has been killing numerous civilians in countries we haven't declared war on for quite a long time now. Technically it's a violation of International law a Crime Against Humanity but don't look for Obama or Bush at the Hague anytime soon.

Perhaps you should leave the heavy lifting to those men not yet wearing squaw's clothing.

    No it's not. The US does so with the permission of the country's government.

    the whole forum is unreal tonight! Most of you have never served in the forces, been to the countries in question or fought Islamic extremists but your happy that some idiots are insulting Islam a religion that we are trying to defend in Afghan and the very people you sent to protect them are in more danger!....good stuff. The whole things a **** show! You did you think we have been fighting for all these years? Civil minded scholars?

    And you call this |terrible"???

    What was the justification of the war with IRaq?

    Why is the USA still in Iraq?

    Are you saying that 1.42 million civilian deaths is fine by you because they are casualties of a war carried out by your nation adn and its defense forces?
    The Iraq war was terrible and will probably be called the crime of the century, but I have to point out that the US withdrew all it's troops by the end of 2011.

    You are dead wrong, civilian casualties from drone strikes have decreased dramatically since 2008. Drones are the only weapon that can defeat AlQeada and anyone who is against them is on the side of the terrorists. You are also on the side of the neocons that want to send 100's of 1000's of troops back to the middle east to serve as targets for terror attacks. Technically you are in violation of your citizenship but I won't tell if you don't.

    The New America Foundation has been collecting data about the drone attacks systematically for the past three years from reputable news sources such as the New York Times and Reuters, as well as Pakistani media outlets such as the Express Tribune and Dawn.

    According to the data generated by averaging the high and low casualty estimates of militant and civilian deaths published in a wide range of those outlets, the estimated civilian death rate in U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan has declined dramatically since 2008, when it was at its peak of almost 50%.

    Today, for the first time, the estimated civilian death rate is at or close to zero.
