Officials: Strike kills 21 militants in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan  - A Pakistani military attack on five suspected militant hideouts killed 21 militants Wednesday, Pakistani intelligence officials said.

The aerial assault targeted militant hideouts and a training center in the areas of upper Orakzai Agency, one of the seven districts of Pakistan's tribal area bordering Afghanistan, the officials said. They asked not to be identified because they are not authorized to speak to the media.

    I'm not a big fan of right-wing anything either Daniel but I think you're barking up the wrong tree. Any sovereign nation has the right AND duty to protect its citizens from threats against them.

    Wow Daniel. Maybe one day one of those militants will kill someone you know on a plane in a building or in some other manner. Maybe then you won't hate us right wingers so much. Oh wait I am sure you would just forgive them for killing a family member.

    Those militants would love to kill Americans and that is what they train for. What is so sick about ridding the region of evil doers? It's just the right thing to do.

    Daniel,

    What about the ISLAMIC-FASCIST murders slaughtering thousands.

    Does that concern you?

    Quick question Daniel,
    So it's OK for the Taleban to send in suicide bombers to kill innocent Pakistani civilians but it's not OK for the Pakistani military to defend its own citizens?
