Jirga threatens to support Afghan Taliban if drone attacks continue

A tribal Jirga of North Waziristan on Sunday threatened to support the Afghanistan-based anti-US groups, including the Taliban, if the US drone attacks were not stopped.

The elders said they would send volunteers and suicide bombers to Afghanistan to intensify the attacks on the US troops if the Americans did not change their policy of using drones to target the tribal people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Aerial bombardment is guaranteed to do two things, and two things only.

First, kill a lot of innocent human beings.

Second, to cause those still standing to become even further radicalized against the government allowing this bombardment to happen.

If throwing Afghanistan into more chaos and more miserable despair was the outcome of US and NATO forces wanted to achieve, then we can say "mission accomplished" here.
