    The Predator drone which is so often seen in the Pakistani skies, and to which so many Pakistanis can relate to, unfortunately has got a bad reputation among common Pakistanis. Should the Pakistani govt declare the Predator drone as the national bird of Pakistan, so that it gains more acceptance, since its a sight that is here to stay. It will drastically improve US -Pakistan strained relations

    The Chukar Partridge is the national bird of Pakistan.

    The problem with this national bird is that when it takes a dump, G**-haadi's meet their 72. :laugh:

    Well I think the Chukar Partridge requiers too much investment... it needs constant protection. Its an unnecessary stress on the already beleaguered Pakistani economy .

    If the predator drone is made the national bird......then Pakis will be the only ones requiring the protection. Besides the Pakistani people do not relate to the Partridge as they do to the drone

    Drone strikes 'could end tomorrow' if Pakistan wants: US Congressman

    WASHINGTON: US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee member Alan Grayson said that if Pakistan wants, drone strikes “could end tomorrow”, BBC Urdu reported.

    Grayson stated that such strikes cannot occur without Pakistan’s approval and they would stop if the Pakistani government stopped facilitating them. This claim runs contrary to Pakistan’s stance that drones attacks are conducted without the approval of Pakistani authorities.

    Remarking on the strength of the Pakistan Air Force, Grayson said that “these strikes would not be possible if Pakistan did not facilitate them.”
    He also stated that “the way to stop drone strikes is through dialogue, not threats.”

    Using Iraq as an example, he said the war there ended after the Iraqi government had told US troops to leave their soil.

    He added further that the end to drone attacks would come only if a similar situation developed in Pakistan.

    After Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s trip to the United States, his main advisor, Sartaj Aziz had said that America had not made a formal announcement that drone strikes will stop but they will reduce by the end of this year. Grayson however said he saw no evidence that Obama’s administration had implied a reduction in drone strikes by the year’s end.

    Grayson felt that the US should compensate the heirs of innocent victims of the drone attacks.

    The Chukar will soon be non existent because it tamely gets itself killed by Pakistanis. Better to have a live bird that exemplifies all that Pakistan stands for dumping, denial and destruction. I vote for the Predator or its cousin the Reaper as Pakistan's national bird
