Robot drone kills 20 radical militants in Pakistan

US airforce claims record

A robot plane has killed more than 20 people during an attack on a militant compound in Pakistan in what the US airforce claims is the deadliest drone strike ever.

Officially it is the largest remote control killing conducted by a robot force yet. The raid by US Reaper unmanned aerial planes carrying more than 3,750 pounds of explosives including an assortment of satellite-guided, quarter-ton bombs, and Hellfire missiles carried out the attack.

The US has been increasingly reliant on robotic planes as the preferred method of attacking bases in Pakistan. Politically the Pakistan government does not seem to be so upset when robot planes kill its citizens, but it has been getting cross about US commandos coming and doing it all personally.

The New York Times notes there have been at least 19 UAV attack in Pakistan's tribal areas "since the beginning of August. Some of the attacks are 25 miles into Pakistani territory." And they are growing increasingly deadly. In a single week in September, US drones killed more than 50 people in four attacks. X

cool to see the robotic plane... not the fighting. The fighting goes on regardless. They are radical terrorists anyway. They woulda died in a suicide bombing in the next few months anyway. At least this way no innocents had to die.

I think its matter of who died and not that people died, do you mind seeing a murder or rapist in this country gunned down by police, do you say o shame someone died.

I think not.

Keep it going i say.

BTTB I agree, in the future we will probably be monitored this way.
