A flurry of airstrikes launched by Pakistani warplanes have killed at least 31 people, all of whom were declared suspected militants, in Pakistan’s Khyber tribal area today.
This was just part of the growing air campaign against the tribal areas, as a US drone also attacked a house in North Waziristan, killing seven more who officials similarly labeled suspects.
The ones killed in the US strike were reportedly ethnic Uzbeks, while the ones killed in the Pakistani campaign were apparently local tribesmen. As usual, no names were provided for the slain.
This is standard operating procedure for both Pakistan and the US in strikes in the area, as they offer little more than a vague assurance of suspicion in their killings, and never follow through except on the rare occasions when they managed to kill someone they’ve heard of.

Tribal areas a hornet’s nest — Watch what happens next
For the downfall of all great Western Empires has come when the people could no longer stomach the pain.
And as it takes so very little to terrorize a people into submission, what with all of Pakistan government and military being only a small fraction of one percent, likewise a rebellion can effect a regime change with so peddle few that it just shows you how addicted those impoverished and starving Pakistan people are to such a greed driven government.
Obama and Prime Minister Sharif are the Assad of Pakistan. When Assad goes on the offensive against the radical islamist in Syria, he is said to be killing his own people but when Obama and Sharif do the same, they are doing it in the name of fighting terrorism.
Will Obama ever stop executing suspects with our money?
