At Least 29 Slain in US Drone Strikes Against South Waziristan


Attacks Target House Full of Tribals in Mandoi

At least 29 people were slain and an unknown number of others wounded today in a pair of US drone strikes against South Waziristan Agency, Pakistan. The first strike targeted a vehicle, killing eight people in Shawwal.

The second strike hit a home full of tribesmen in Mandoi, killing the 21 people inside and wounding a number of people surrounding the area. The toll in Mandoi is expected to continue to rise through the evening, as people were continuing to be pulled from the rubble.

The attacks were the latest in a flurry of escalating attacks launched by the US since early May. In June alone the death toll is now nearly 100 killed, with all termed “suspects” but none conclusively identified as an actual militant, including one “confirmed” kill that was later retracted.

Pakistan’s government has repeatedly demanded that the US halt all drone strikes against the tribal areas. Today’s strikes once again suggest this won’t be happening any time soon and that if anything, the Obama Administration is looking to escalate even more.

    I hope you realize that our air strikes in Pakistan by the drones, and soon to be throughout the world, are and will be necessary for some time in order to justify to the Western masses the tremendous cost of developing such a weapon, to increase the tremendous profits of war for the MIC, to advertise the power of our war industry to our future consumers of war weapons, and to further promote research and improvements in future drones and in other such weapons.

    We are also trying to punish our enemies who won’t acknowledge our God given right to own or at least control the wealth of the world. Our atomic bombing of Japan and our destruction of Dresden, both occurring long after victory had been established in WW2, failed to make this point clear to the world. Consequently we have had to have dozens of wars, both big and little, since that time to establish this fact.

    It hoped that the use of our drones will not fail us in this regard. Wars are such messy endeavors.

    The Taliban claim to have shot down two of these things in the course of 24 hours..
    not sure where Steve Wiseman is coming from, ie: “our air strikes in Pakistan” and “the use of our drones” etc.

    wonder how much coverage these genocidal acts are receiving in the jewstream media and its lying liberal jew sister. F** ALL I RECKON. they are designed as weapons of mass murder and nothing else; deisgned and used by F***ING COWARDS.

    as has been commented on this website by many a person, the traitorous leaders of pakistan are not interested in the welfare of their nation even though they claim to be. they are only interested in doing the jews dirty work.

    when will the arab/islamic nations get their own drones and use them on the parasitic jews/american murderers; cos only then will the jewstream media talk about them as weapons of mass destruction. this will in turn make the sheeple aware of these horrendous weapons.

    Ingrid. Thanks for your question. I was simply commenting on the latest American weapon that the Yanks have been being used in Pakistan and Afghanistan (and soon to be in Ira) in the vicious American one hundred year old war for world conquest.

    No doubt these weapons will soon be used to patrol their Mexican and Canadian borders and rest of the world the world as well…

    A tiny group of a thousand American, Israeli, British and European billionaire families are becoming fantastically rich from all of this…And yet the wars go and on as the world slips into the coming great bankruptcy and great depression… When will the American taxpayers and the 45 million Americans on food stamps wake up? When will they ever learn?

    @funky d : I think Iran has developed drones but use them for surveillance/Intelligence gathering….
