US drones continue to shower Pakistan with rockets

These remote bombings (including when done in a traditional aircraft and pilot) don't have a tremendous track record. With each attack, we're only one step away from the next wedding party disaster. Is this really where we want to go?

Rockets fired from a US drone killed between eight and 15 people in north-west Pakistan on Monday, officials have said in varying accounts. It is the third strike in as many days after attacks on Saturday and Sunday killed a total of 12 people.

The latest strike targeted a militant hideout in the Hesokhel village of the North Waziristan tribal region, officials said.

US drones hit targets in the South Waziristan tribal region on Saturday and Sunday. There have been a total of seven strikes in less than two weeks.
