Drones and Revenge: How a Pashtun Man Pursues Justice

During the CODEPINK delegation to Pakistan, the delegates had a chance to meet with many of the drone victims and family members from Waziristan. One man they met was Karim Khan, from the tiny village of Machikhel in North Waziristan. Khan, a large man in his late fifties with striking features, including a long beard, and wearing traditional tribal garb, surprised the group when he revealed that he spoke English and has worked as a journalist for outlets such as Al Jazeera.

Khan told his story about how on December 31, 2009, a drone strike leveled his home, killing his 18 year-old son and his brother. The third man that died the night of that strike was a stonemason who had traveled to the town to work on the village mosque.

[font=Arial, Verdana]The news reports alleged that the target of the drone had been a Taliban commander, Haji Omar, but Khan insisted that Haji Omar had been nowhere near the villag

      This explains your common sense.

  • If jackass like this guy didn't help to harbor those militant mofos, all Pakis dead from drone strikes in Pakistan would be alive. If he didn't get that in his head over the course of 9 years of war in Afghanistan, just desserts.

  • Do these Pashtun men know the Codepink bitches are Lesbian feminists who want to steal their women and abort their babies? Not yet, I guess. Let's see what happens when the dirt worshipers find out.

  • If you came to my town and killed my family I would make it my mission in life to hunt you down and kill you anyway I could.

    Most of these people have no feelings one way or another until we end up killing their love ones as "collateral damage".

    This needs to stop. If we stayed the fuck out of these people's business to begin with we would not have had any problems. We need to stay the fuck out of the middle east. Time to remove the dozens of military bases we have in the area a More..

      I don't want to go to the middle east, I want my country to remove its bases from all over the damn world (including your country). I want us to stop acting like the world's police and stop spending almost as much on defense as the rest of the world COMBINED.

      It is going to lead to our downfall and I want us to fucking stop and focus on our own country.

      No, if you haven't noticed Obama is as much about bombing other countries as Bush or any other president we have had in the last 30 years.

  • I was just a boy when the infidels came to my village in their Blackhawk helicopters. The infidels fired at the oil fields and they lit up like the eyes of Allah. Burning oil rained down from the sky and cooked everything it touched. I could only hide myself and cry as my goats were consumed by the fiery black liquid death. In the midst of the chaos, I could swear that I heard my goats screaming for help. As quickly as they had come, the infidels were gone. It was on that day I put a jihad on th More..

  • The big problem here of course is the assumption that he is telling the truth. We all know that there is a vigorous procedure to a drone launch. What this asshole does't say is when the tai commander was at his place. Just like the typical kiss ass lefties, they believe this guys shit uncritically. Can't wait to see this dudes shot up remains on a future post.

Now you've killed their loved ones for what reason? then you ask, why you mad bro, hate 'murika? the better part is that, these people know full well that there isnt much you can do about it, they'll keep on keepin on. The whole world's gone stupid.

  • When asked if he would fly a drone over the United States and drop missiles, he looked astonished at the mere suggestion. “Of course I wouldn’t do that,” he said, “because I might kill innocent people.”

    Just who are the barbarians, really?
