The Americans and the Europeons have made Malala a pakistani girl as the hero of the whole world, whereas we in pakistan dont believe in the concocted stories written by free lance author Christna lamb. I wonder where goes the conscience of the Americans when they bomb the innocent people in pakistan. They are judge in their own cause.

How American that we only allow ONE of the thousands of families effected by drone strikes, to come to the US to speak about the illegality of drone strikes, yet we refuse to let their lawyer in. I would love to see this as progress in realizing the true nature of our drone strikes, but the reality of the situation is that this is just a PR stunt to secure seats in congress. If congress really cared about the devastating results of our drone program, they would do something about it. The way the call a single family to testify as if they are for the first time hearing of the dangers is sickening.

In the US, our drone killings should be described as they really are, group lynchings using drones. Even if only those we target are killed, they are still lynchings and have nothing to do with legality. We hanged Germans for doing much less than our drone operators.

The US has turned into the most repulsive country in the world. Adolf Obama and his band of killers have made themselves the judge jury and executioners. Not even innocent civilians matter to them as they test their new weapons on anyone who happens to be in their sights.

In the "land of the free home of the brave" some gutless cowardly moron sits there pressing buttons to murder more civilians.


Being an born and bred American, I find these sort of comments hard to read, not because of the poster, no, but because it's true.

Stop the drones, stop the murder. Show the people that every drone has been destroyed. Let the people decide what we want. Fire the politicians that do as they choose without what the citizens want.

These cruel drone attacks, carried out by the United States, are crimes against humanity. Congress will do nothing.
