On Thursday – Pakistan’s parliament unanimously approved a series of measures related to the United States’ military involvement in the area – including demanding an end to drone strikes in their country. Late last year – am errant U.S. drone strike in Pakistan killed 24 Pakistani soldiers – and soured diplomatic relations with a so-called ally in the so-called war on terror.
That strike prompted the Pakistani government to close U.S. supply routes into Afghanistan. Just when you thought the never-ending war on terror couldn’t get any messier – it just did. Time to bring our troops home and end this senseless fear-driven crusade against terrorism around the world.
