Suspected US missile strike kills 2 in NW Pakistan

DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan – Intelligence officials say a suspected U.S. missile strike has hit a tribal region in northwest Pakistan, killing two suspected militants.

The two officials say Wednesday's strike hit a car near Wana, the main town in South Waziristan, a tribal region that is the main stronghold of Pakistan's top Taliban chief.

It came the day after Pakistani officials reiterated their opposition to the missile attacks to visiting U.S. envoy Richard Holbrooke.

Speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to media, the officials say two suspected militants died in the strike.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — Taliban militants who ventured beyond their stronghold in Pakistan's Swat Valley killed five police and tribesmen in a clash that could strain a controversial government peace effort that imposes Islamic law in parts of the northwest.

In Pakistan's south, meanwhile, police said Wednesday they had captured five suspected members of an al-Qaida-linked group who allegedly planned suicide attacks in the city of Karachi and had attacked the supply line for U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan.

Militants appear to be extending their reach across U.S.-allied Pakistan from the lawless tribal regions that border Afghanistan, leaving the government scrambling for solutions.

Flying drones around and pushing buttons that kills and destroys will not solve ANY problems.  Did it work on the Taliban?  Hell no, they just picked up and moved.  And they will do the same again.  You do not solve problems with death and destruction - PERIOD!
