Weekend Drone Toll up to 12 in Pakistan

•, Common Dreams staff
 12 people have been killed in two days in Pakistan after the sixth American drone strike over the last two weeks.
Ten were killed on Sunday when an aircraft fired missiles into a gathering mourning one of two fighters killed by drone strikes the previous day.

US drone tactics in Pakistan continue to come under fire from critics who point out the drastic civilian death toll and the radicalization of the enraged populations there. "Strange to say, the Pakistani people, or at least 97% of them, haven’t taken as well as Washington might have expected to its urge to launch endless drone attacks on their territory...Drones, which have certainly killed their share of “bad guys” (and children) in the Pakistani borderlands, have also managed to throw U.S.-Pakistan relations into chaos," writes journalist Tom Engelhardt.
