Maybe then we should just retreat, and surrender and run home, let Afghanistan fall back into Taliban hands, watch the genocide that follows, watch as they build terrorist training camps, and go off killing civilians again. Ill bet it wouldnt take long for those people to starve back down to accepting anything the Taliban told them to do. and maybe one of those Taliban trained terrorists could hit youre neighborhood and kill youre neighbors next time, Its always different when its some one elses family isnt it? We could all come home and show the worlds killers just how Tolerant we are.

If the Pakistani Army were not colluding with the ISI/Taliban/AQ terr0r group, this wouldn't be happening.. Now, would it?

OF CHILDREN AND WAR REMEMBRANCES

'am 28 going 29, We've been in active wars somewhere around the globe. Remembering innocence, I been bombarded with images of little people, I hardly even know - their faces marred with grief, sadness, fear, lost, hunger and traces of tears I can't decipher. Dad hated the conflicts. Mom cited reasons for the invasions.

When I dreamt of them, I'd find my way to my brothers rooms for comfort and safety. "Liev said it's just a dream".

There I was - in comfort suburbia, Mom and Dad will be there in the morning. She'd be making breakfast, hurrying with her attache' raving she'd be late for court, Dad scrumbled to find those engineering drafts gulping his coffee while me and my 5 brothers hurried out with our backpacks and lunch bags . Goog childhood memories.

But I often wondered - those little people in my dreams - did they go to school too ? My wrinkled face asked Dad. Why am I so lucky, so privilege ? I understood his silence responses - sadness and weariness in his eyes. His hugs comforted me.

Fast forward - recently married - good job, suburban home, 2 SUV's in a 2-car garage, friends and supposrtive family.

But I still dream of them and pray to little Jesus, if he is still listening.



And I wonder about those children with dirty faces and torn clothes, almost begging for the pain to go away. And I thought . . .

You're a good writer...keep it up !

Why is this news? If we did it just say we did it, and continue doing it until the people of the region realize it is not beneficial to harbor the militants in their area. These types of attacks need to happen everyday. For anyone who says that this creates more enemies that is unlikely. All these people hate us already so I say it is better to be feared than loved.

Suspected missiles, alleged militants? Why does HP place conditional modifiers on these nouns. A missile is not a "suspected" missile, especially if somebody from the US military says they are missiles.

HP is muddying up the news. For what end?

we're working our way up to "alleged nukes" and suspected "populations".

As far as "alleged nukes", America is already there. Have you seen the lies about Iran the American MSM prints?

So now we are using "suspected missiles" to kill "suspected militants"?

For every civilian killed by one of these things we gain 10 enemies sworn to revenge. The will lose the war for us.
09:22 AM on 09/14/2010
They're just alleged enemies, for us to allegedly blow up with verbiage.

So who else might be firing missiles from drones in, fer petessake, Waziristan?
I think it's Barbados.
That may sound silly, but 'alleged' is the giveaway. Because the American military and the spooks apparently can't be sure who owns and operates the drones in Waziristan, I defy any reader to prove it's not Barbados.
Think about it: What else does Barbados make besides drone aircraft and missiles? Clams and sunburn. That's it: missiles, drones, clams and sunburn.
Sure, their arms factories are super-top-ultra secret so no one can ever know if they even exist without ending up in Git'mo skewered on an electrode, but isn't that proof right there?
I rest my leg.

Why do they miss out the word 'Militants' in the title. It is in most sentences in the article.

Because it was only 'suspected' US missiles and 'alleged' militants?

Because ISAF will inevitably be forced to admit it was a pre-school, not a 'militant' hideout.

citing pak media editorials is in my opinion a losing cause. they are full of conspriracy theories that specially rise to the top when an internal sucide attack takes place. Its always the jews, americans or indians they blame when their own home grown terrorist and ISI backed terrorist are coming to bite them in the arse.

they never hold themselves accountable and always go " surely it can't be a muslim doing it to a muslim"

Yes and no. Al body counts are distributed by the US government and mean only what they tell you they mean.

Forget that eight year old child kicked into a ditch by the side of the road and covered by junk. He doesn't count.
