Sources: Possible drone strike in Pakistan kills 8 Germans

Eight people thought to be German nationals were killed in a suspected drone strike in northwestern Pakistan, two Pakistani officials said Monday.

The strike happened in the Mir Ali area of North Waziristan, the officials said.

Missiles struck a building that held the eight, who are believed to have been members of the group Jihad al Islami, the officials said.

The strike comes a day after the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the FBI issued a joint bulletin warning that terror attacks were being plotted against targets Europe. European intelligence officials said Monday that a group of jihadists from Germany were at the heart of the plots, but it was not immediately clear if the warning and the suspected drone strike were related.

    US bought loyalty of many War Lords in Af-Pak after 9/11 successively. Unfortunately not of Pakistan after paying " High Price ". And it was not shocking for Indians like me, after listening Mushraff's 1st speech after 9/11 to back stab Crusaders, quoting " Q'ORAN ". Recently, Mushraff admitted that Pakistan trained & supported Militants against India, which most of the Pak Politicians denied, till today. Seems, its too late for Pakistan to back up from Home Grown Terrorists & the Monster created is getting out of control.

    More bombing, more bombing. Eventually the people who live in these areas will get so sick of it, the terrorists will not be welcome and we can go back to chasing these guys through the hills and mountains.

    All of mankind will bow down to Jesus when he comes down with the new Jerusalem in the new world and begins his1000 year reign! And behold those who die young will be cursed as those who live in his loving ways will live long and fruitful lives!

      I doubt it very much that Jesus will bless those filthy creeps who operate those cursed drones butchering defenseless people with absolutely no remorse or feelings whatsoever.Furthermore,I doubt if He will be swayed by their lame excuses.But again,what do these creeps care since they obviously don't believe in Him in the first place?

      Judging by all these warmongers who keep on blogging in here in favor of this obscene war,it appears that the people in this country are about as wicked as those in Sodom and Gomorrah or the world before the Great Flood.Anybody who condones the use of those godless drones can't possibly be all good! The people in this country are sorely in need of a moral compass!!!

      Jesus had foretold of these times, he had called them labor pains and that there would be wars, talk of wars, famine, floods, earthquakes and people like your 360 degree truth who would kill others just because they think that they are doing God a favor but hold onto your faith because the end is near and HIS second coming would be swift, first those asleep shall be risen then those that are still alive shall be caught up with HIM in the sky just as HE left 2000 years ago!

      I wish that you right-wing fools would quit lambasting the Germans since some of them were my ancestors.Although I am German by ancestry,I hate war and bloodshed.At the same time I'm an American and proud of it although I hate the right-wing fanatics who run Washington and keep us at war.

    I love how they accidentally (or purposely?) left out "Militants" in the headline – I clicked on it thinking they had killed German humanitarian workers by accident. Nope, no accident – right on target.

    Death to 360 degrees truth of terrorism which comes from around the globe to train and plan attacks against the western world in the North western tribal regions of Waziristan in Pakistan by the most sophisticated weapons from the most powerful nation in the world!

    Isn't that good ? To get the European infiltration at the roots. JUBII !!!!! for drone strikes. Precise, and only the bad guys are hit. Germans or otherwise, what these muslims call themselves. They're not REAL Germans. They're Muslim infiltrators into Germany, who get citizenship, as ticking bombs
