  1. I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO SYMPATHY FOR THESE PEOPLE IT IS FAR BETTER THEM THAN ANYMORE AMERICANS OR OUR ALLIES. IF THE PAKISTANI PEOPLE WANT TO CHANGE THAT SITUATION THEY NEED TO KILL EVERY TERRORIST ON THE FACE OF THIS EARTH AND REALIZE AND ACCCEPT THE FACT THAT PEOPLE DIE IN WARS. WHEN THEY PROTECT THE WORLDS ENEMIES THEY WILL DIE WITH THEM.

    • Whew! You absolutely amaze me! It is this very attitude and mindset that causes wars, and drives the war machine!

      Since you promote yourself in your posts as a God-fearing Christian, allow me to quote a Bible passage that well describes this very mindset that you promote:

      “Where do you think all these appalling wars and quarrels come from? Do you think they just happen? Think again. They come about because you want your own way, and fight for it deep inside yourselves.” (James 4:1)

      This passage goes on to aptly describe America’s quest for oil, and/or oil pipeline designs in that part of the world: “You lust for what you don’t have and are willing to kill to get it. You want what isn’t yours and will risk violence to get your hands on it. ” (James 4:2)

      And what of the many Bible verses on loving your enemies? Do you ever stop and apply your Book to your Beliefs?

      • P.S. – BTW, Pakistan IS America’s ally, last I heard.

        So as far as your statement “I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO SYMPATHY FOR THESE PEOPLE” [that American drones are indiscriminately killing] “FAR BETTER THEM THAN ANYMORE [of] OUR ALLIES” … ?

        Seems your blind so-called patriotism needs some updating and challenging with actual facts.
