Pakistan is getting uneasy about the use of drones, but still allows it.
S W A N said:
Every country you named has had some sort of US presence in it since before Obama. Try again
If that were the case, we would never invade any country because we have a global presence everywhere. If we sent troops to Korea we wouldn't be invading it because we already have troops there from decades ago?
Our military has gone and and escalated our presence in every one of those countries. Thought we were supposed to be out of Iraq in the first term?
Now we are carrying out active airstrikes?
People still supporting this guy?
