The drone attacks by US on North and South Waziristan have now become an everyday news on our news channels. These horrible strikes are killing innocent people and destroying houses and villages while our government sits cold as a spectator supporting US policy and lodging an odd, feeble protest from time to time. It was eye-opening to know that the drones carrying out these attacks are, in fact, taking off from our own land, from the Shamsi Air Base located in a remote area of Balochistan. How shocking -MAHA SABIR, Karachi, September 28.
