As an aftermath of recent drone attacks in Waziristan that killed several militants fighting the Pakistan army, the Foreign Office spokesperson issued a statement condemning US for these attacks. There is a famous saying that an action taken by anyone against ones enemy is a friendly act that has to be eulogized. The Foreign Office should wake up and change its stance against drone attacks. The era of pleasing militants and their cohorts in the religio-political parties is over. Now we should be watching out for only Pakistan’s interest which is to destroy perpetrators of insurgency. Therefore, support by any friendly country should be welcomed.
