US Drone Strike Kills Six in North Waziristan region of Pakistan

Published on

US Drone Firing two missiles on a compound and on a vehicle, have killed six people in North Waziristan Agency. Drone strike came on a time when Pakistan Army is fighting militants in same area. However, the residents are not all militants but also the locals/innocent civilians reside there. How a drone from height of thousands of feet above ground can grantee that rocket fired will not harm anyone innocent. Pakistan army with their Operation Zarb-e-Azb is doing good in area and with ground forces they are carefully working to clear the area of terrorists. However, a drone attack at that point in time is pointless.

Pakistani Foreign office have already condemned the drone attack in a statement and deemed it violation of our airspace and sovereignty. While Pakistani ground forces are there in the area, United States must quit playing the big brother and should let Pakistanis take care of their own problems.Unmanned Ariel Vehile AKA Drone

Militants are sure big problem of our country but on same time its true that our government and army is doing much to take care of this problem. Specially the most recent on going Operation Zerb-e-Azb have achieved much and eradicated several dozens of terror minded people. United States sure do not have any right to violate air space of a sovereign country and take matters in their own hands.

Pakistani government should also reply more aggressively on diplomatic forums and just one statement for foreign office is not going to do it. They need make it clear to United States that the it no more need to play Big Brother and must mind its own business and let us face and solve our problems.

Main problem with these drone attacks is according to reports of several International surveys they do more harm to innocent civilians, women and children than the militants. Are hence very much counter productive in a million ways.

The protest was held in order to put pressure on United States by stopping the Nato supply which essentially goes through Pakistan to the Nato forces in Afghanistan.

Pakistan does discourage the terrorism and have zero tolerance for any militant groups operating from its soil. But on same time they want the deal with the issue themselves. United States keep targeting people in Pakistan via drone strikes, which ignite the rage in people, why a country first violates the air space of Pakistan then hits the ground targets via drones which much of times also result in the killings of innocent people which have nothing do with terrorism. This also include the killings of woman and children, plus killings or innocent men in many cases. As soon as more innocent get affected by drone strikes in the country, the anger of people against United States increases, that in turn strengthen these militant groups. So drone attacks are fully counter productive.

People of Pakistan along with most of political groups want to deal with the militant groups on its soil but they demand that let us deal with them our way on our land. As drone attacks are not solving the issue, but its just forcing people turn violent specially when drone hits and kills an innocent human being.

Drones does killed some militants in near and far past but they does killed innocent people too, specially women and children. So how do you think they would react to this.

Imran Khan Led PTI along with people of Pakistan are actively protesting against the drone strikes in Pakistan, they do want an end to these drone strikes. First protesting rally was gone very much successful. Its been decided by Imran Khan with his party and People of Pakistan specially Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK – A Pakistani Province) that they will resist to drone strikes in Pakistan. These rallies according to Imran Khan and PTI would continue until United States (US) realize that they should let Pakistanis deal with any militants on their soil. They are always welcome to give any on ground logistic support by approval of Pakistani Government but drone air strikes are not productive and should stop soon.

Rest assured Pakistanis are as peace liking and  as peaceful as any other nation of world, they would eradicate any militant activity on their soil but they will be doing their own way, not via US drones which violate Pakistani airspace without approval of Pakistani government.

Pakistan witnessed more than 49000 reported deaths in so called regarding war on terror

Published on

war against terrorAn Indian news article, based on news reports from Pakistan stated that 49000 Pakistanis lost their lives in activities regarding war on terrorism. These include innocent people died in blasts and attacks on civilian population as retaliation to actions against so called militants residing on Pakistani soil.

This number is much more than the reported number stated above. As lots of deaths would never have been reported. Some here believe that thing have been mishandled by previous governments, specially Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), the Zardari led political party in power.

For example, they were unable to settle terms about drone attacks with United States on Pakistani soil. Which, Americans say, were carried out to target militants but according to all the surveys carried out on national and international level, most of affected people of drone attacks were innocent civilians including women and children. Success rate of targeting militants was as low as less than 5% of total causalities. Plus Pakistani government would have decided terms and would have been part of the operation on Pakistani soil to make sure the good guys are not hurt.

Reason for mentioning the drone attacks was that, due to these drone attacks when relatives of civilians started to die, it made them furious and made them attack other civilians in cities. It worsened the law in order situation badly, so some of friends also turned in foes.

Also only one way solution was imposed on people of Pakistan, that was bombarding some full areas of country, giving people other option, many say, in some areas the dialog would have been better solution, not only for Pakistan but also for International community. But somehow so called our leaders were not able to do that.

May Allah bless Pakistan, bless it with honest leadership, who are able to make the right decision and put Pakistan back on the Path of economic development. Change will come soon, it will come from your vote, do choose the right person when you vote in upcoming elections.

US drone aircraft attacks North Waziristan killing ten people

Published on

US drone aircraft attacked North Waziristan to target militants on Tuesday. Ten people reportedly killed in the attack. The studies conducted on the US drone attacks on Pakistani areas show that these kind of attacks have not been successful to pin point the militants and one in each three killed people is an innocent civilian. Same is the reason for growing anti American sentiments in the country.

Pakistani people and Government already demanded that if US really want to make a contribution towards the restoring peace in the country by taking out militants, they must transfer the drone technology instead of taking control of things themselves on Pakistani soil and let the local forces plan and perform the controlled operations making sure that no civilians are hurt during the process.

Pakistani forces already used Jet Aircrafts to target the hiding culprits in those areas but no civilian causalities are reported in that case. Obama will have to take a decision here and will have to stop invading the country, even if he is doing this to help, there much other thing which can be done in this regard but invading the country’s airspace without the willingness of locals is not very much helpful. Also Pakistan Air force and forces are fully capable of taking any of these down easily but we Pakistanis are looking to keep the things on dialog.

On other side if US recognizes us as the front line state in war against terror or their partner in this war, they will have to respect the feelings of Pakistani Public and will have to act accordingly so that they don’t lose in our support in what they are doing in our region.
