    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has spelt out in no uncertain terms that US drone attacks inside its territory must stop, but Washington is not listening, the country's foreign minister said.

    "On drones, the language is clear: a clear cessation of drone strikes," Hina Rabbani Khar said.

    "I maintain the position that we'd told them categorically before. But they did not listen. I hope their listening will improve," she told Reuters in an interview late on Wednesday.

    The attacks by the unmanned aircraft from Afghanistan, which US officials say are highly effective against militants, fuel anti-American sentiment in Pakistan because they are seen as violations of sovereignty that inflict civilian casualties.

    Khar's sharp comments on the drone strikes came ahead of a two-day visit to Islamabad by the United States' special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan, Marc Grossman.

    Ambassador Grossman was due to hold bilateral meetings with Pakistani officials and take part in a "core group" meeting with officials from both Pakistan and Afghanistan, where the United States is hoping to revive stalled peace talks with the Taliban.

    Khar said other methods should be used to take out militants in the border region between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    "We have to look at effective tools which are mutually acceptable. The cost of using tools which are not mutually acceptable is far, far too high. We're looking at alternatives," she said, without elaborating. (Reuters)

    We tried to tell the Pakistansi where the terrorist were with the idea that they would do something, they usually did right after they notified the terrorist they were comming.

    Yh? and who's we? Yourself and the CIA?

    Like Orakzai offensive? Kurram offensive? Operation Rah-e-Nijat? Kyhber pass offensive? Operation Janbaz? Operation Black thunderstom? Operation Sherdil?

    Countless PAF air strikes in FATA areas? Countless air ops conducted by PA aviation wing?
    ISI and Military intelligence led raids? artillery strikes? infiltrations?

    The amount of daily shoot outs in FATA between militants and security personnel?

    It all adds up to 20k+ militants killed, with limited funds, on our own land, and with harsh terrain and urban warfare where innocents and their properties were present. Not to mention, the taliban's primary form of offence... suicide attacks.

    What more do you want?

    The drone strikes are just stupid.

    That is called security collateral. You have a govt. (like ours who spend crores on arrested terrorist even after death sentance by SC) who advises Hafiz Saeed to reduce public appearance instead of taking action on him.

    Terrorists creators should be sentenced death and chelas should serve minimum jail term and live peaceful life (same applies for Naxals and Mao in India)..
