Rogue Nation Slaughters Innocents at Funeral

Imagine if the nation was North Korea. What would be the US reaction?

Or if Iran were doing it? Neocons and liberals alike would call for an invasion.

After all, collective punishment is a war crime.

But alas. It's only us. So, not a peep out of our representatives.

I'm still waiting for that change you can believe in.

At least 45 people have died in a missile strike by a US drone aircraft in Pakistan, officials there have said.

The people killed in South Waziristan region had been attending a funeral for others killed in a US drone strike earlier on Tuesday.

Intelligence officials said at least 45 people had been killed and dozens more injured in the later strike, when two missiles were fired.

But a local official told BBC News the death toll was more than 50.

The region is a stronghold of Pakistani Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud.
