  • Abu Yahya al Libi, al-Qaida's No. 2 leader, who was killed Monday by a drone-fired missile in Pakistan had no comment because he is dead.

      18 Afghan civillians had no comment either,because they were killed by NATO bombs last week.

      NATO admitted the mistake and said that they would stop bombing civillian homes from now on (a bit late don't you think).

    presstv fail.

    NO WE NEVER CALLED THEM MUSLIM MUJAHIDEEN. Where the fuck do you get this shit? ANNNNNNNNNND where in the fuck do you get 91%+ say civilians have been killed lol? Would they happen to be illiterate satanic Salafists/deobandists from NWFP?? That's what I thought. Stop lying already.

    You have to love how the actual article also states this (see below), but you conveniently leave it out lol.

    "Overall, 3,021 civilians died in violence r More..

  • The Taliban would claim responsibility it a meteor hit the earth! Let me guess, they used a weather balloon to fly a guy up in the air. He then jumped off the balloon and forced the drone to crash by holding a carrot on a stick in front of it.

    Please state your source for the 91% innocents killed?

    • @Aariss In yemen there are drone strikes at least once a week and they tend to kill 5-10 civilians for every al qaeda member, not too sure about everywhere else though.

    • @kill_the_yanks source? Actually the drones have an extremely long staging time in which they can monitor what is going on. Strikes are determined when they can get the target and reduce civilian casualties. Not the drones fault the targets sit inside schools and mosques! It's called using Human shields.. if they want to reduce innocent deaths, get away from innocents.

  • At least TRY to act credible, rag heads. Maybe shower once a month instead of once a year, the stench is now creeping into your brains. If it crashed at all, it was a normal malfunction. Happens. Big deal. The claim that the women mutilators, the Taliban, shot it down? Goat shit. These things can't even be seen from the ground.

    And the only ones killing civilians are the Taliban, Al Qaeda, and Al Qaeda in Iraq.

    FAIL.

      And not only drones but Helicopters as well.
      Here is an example of an Apache helicopter killing 9 Afghan kids who were collecting firewood.

      http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/03/world/asia/03afghan.html?_r=1

      It's incredible how they mistook these children for heavily armed Taliban, makes you wonder how many other Afghans have been killed by US/NATO airstrikes over the years,must be a huge number.

      Drones have killed scores of innocent people since the war began, in fact drones have even killed US soldiers in the past.

      the point is dude this idea of waging war useing drones is also a great way of slipping responsabilty for civilian casualtys,most stikes are done in secret in areas hard to get to and also by unknown operators working in classified bases.It is a deniable war crime that is becoming more and more commen,and the thing you should worrie about is that they will be opperating in the united states soon

  • The pathological liar Light strikes again with his fractured Sunni extremist fairy tales. A drone may have crashed, but the rest of Light's description is pure fiction. How could the Taliban have caused the crash? The drones fly too high to be reached by Taliban weapons. Even if the Taliban had some AAA it would be suicidally wasteful and stupid to fire them at drones. They'd just be revealing their position which would make them and their valuable AAA an easy Hellfire target. Even the Taliban a More..

  • We can only hope we got our money's worth out of it before it crashed. Believe me when I tell you, our enemies would use this kind of technology if they were capable of actually manufacturing it.

    So assassination drone? Why not, because it brings terror to those who want to bring terror to us and we assassinate the hell out of them with it.

    Keep your eyes on the sky's, bitches.
