Suspected drone strike kills 2 in Pakistan

A suspected U.S. drone strike killed two people in Pakistan's tribal region Monday, intelligence officials said.

It was the 19th suspected drone strike in Pakistan this month. That's the highest number in any month since the United States began attacks with the unmanned aircraft, according to a CNN count.

Two missiles hit a suspected militant hideout in Khush Hali, a village in North Waziristan, one of seven districts in Pakistan's volatile tribal region bordering Afghanistan, two intelligence officials said.

This is the third suspected U.S. drone strike in as many days in Pakistan's tribal region and - based on a CNN count - the 65th this year.

The intelligence officials asked not to be named because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

    Even the Kashmiri's want nothing to do with Pakistan, they are fast becoming a pariah state.

    So, these Muslim tribal terrorists refuse to be governed as they plot and scheme their next terrorist act? Well then, the drones shall rule them! From above the clouds your new master is watching and waiting as he picks the time and place. Bin Laden can't help you now!

    I think the US administration, nor India for that matter would dare attack a country with military might as strong as Pakistan. India should be more concerned about the Maoists rebels, Indias biggest internal security threat. The US should also mind its own business and consider the rise of China, and its manipulation of its FX thats damaging the US economy.

    The weak Pakistan govt should have the audacity to at least verbally respond to this menace of attempted bullying from all angles.

      Take a look at the BBC news site they often report them where they are being 'ignored' elsewhere.

    Observe the term "tribal region." These brutal slayers of men, women and children are NOT citizens of Pakistan as they refuse to be governed by ANY nation. Consequently, these lawless Muslim maniacs are having justice delivered to them almost daily courtesy of 800 lb. missiles fired from above the clouds. If they cannot be brought to justice, then justice will continue to brought to them.

    I can only imagine the utter fear these relentless drone strikes are creating in the hearts of these Muslim murderers. Good riddance to them. And what poetic justice that planes are delivering huge payloads on their heads!
