PESHAWAR, Pakistan - Thousands of Pakistanis took to the streets Sunday to rage for a second day against a purported U.S. attack on a border village, chanting "Death to America" and demanding U.S. troops leave neighboring Afghanistan, as more details emerged about the airstrike.

Pakistani intelligence officials said the reported target, al-Qaida No. 2 leader Ayman al-Zawahri, had been invited to the attacked village for a dinner marking a Muslim festival on the night of the missile strike but he failed to show up.


Protesters demanded an end to the U.S. presence in Afghanistan, where loyalists of the ousted Taliban regime and other militants are battling an Afghan government supported by American and other foreign troops. Many insurgents are believed to use Pakistan's border region as a haven.

here for all of it

The U.S. bombs country: the people of that country hate the U.S. This method is how we're trying STOP terrorism. I don't like al Qaida or the Taliban either, but how are we supposed to stop them by recruiting members for them, and what makes us hero's and them terrorists when we both kill innocent people? When we do it, its "colateral damage", but when they do it, its "terrorism". We do it in the name of "freedom" and "democracy", they do it in the name of "Allah" and "Islam"; if aliens are watching us, I doubt they can tell who's the patriot and who's the terrorist. We should make all of our policies follow this logic so we'd look more consistant, lets start putting fires out with gasoline!
