    President orders air strikes on villages in tribal area

    Source [Guardian.co.uk | President orders air strikes on villages in tribal area]

    Barack Obama gave the go-ahead for his first military action yesterday, missile strikes against suspected militants in Pakistan which killed at least 18 people.

    [...]


    Obama has warned that he is prepared to bomb inside Pakistan if he gets relevant intelligence about the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden. He had also said he would act against militants along the border if the Pakistan government failed to.

    [...]

    The first attack yesterday was on the village of Zharki, in Waziristan; three missiles destroyed two houses and killed 10 people. One villager told Reuters of phonethat of nine bodies pulled from the rubble of one house, six were its owner and his relatives; Reuters added that intelligence officials said some foreign militants were also killed. A second attack hours later also in Warizistan killed eight people.
    Looks like he's eager to show that his campaign positions on Afghanistan and Pakistan are more than just talk. Just a small strike, but it gets the message across

    Well, President Bush declared that we will give the terrorists no quarter. we will go after them where ever they hide.

    (Except, of course, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, or any other country on good terms with Halliburton. )

    How dare Obama order missile strikes on a house killing innocent people. Obama is a warmonger. We the people should pursue war crimes trials against B.H. Obama. Damn American Imperialist warmonger. I wonder how many innocent children were killed by Obomba in these attacks?

    Do you support President Obama's actions here? I would think that you do.

    I wonder what it is like to give your first order to blow up someone's farmhouse.

    I mean it cannot be very easy to digest. But thank God we can still blow things up.

    It is not easy. I am no fan of the bush family in general but quite awhile back they did an interview with Bush sr. Of course they got around to talking about Desert Storm.

    As some of the actions and decisions of the campaign were being discussed. Bush sr actually broke down and wept. It was the real deal. And he was not just weeping over US losses but the losses on both side. Even though I view him and family as boot licking toadies that failed their way to the top I could not help but feel sorry for the man.

    I believe he is just being ironic to show a point to the liberals...

    What, no comments from Obama supporters. You people that think Bush should be prosecuted for war crimes. Not a single one of you hypocrites will stand up and defend your president. Well I am not supprised. I will defend his actions. Obama is doing what he deems necessary to defeat our enemies. I hope that he continues to do the right thing in regards to the War on Terror.

    Sometimes innocents die in war. In this case 3 children. Ask the Israelis.

    I've been hearing for years that liberals were going to surrender to the terrorists. I've heard for a year that Obama is the most liberal Senator in the Senate. What gives?

    Obama hasn't tortured anyone.
