    Us Drones Launch Chemical Attacks On Pakistani Civilians

    TEHRAN, June 8 (Bernama) -- Pakistani physicians and experts reported that the United States uses chemical munitions in its drone attacks on the country's civilians, Iran's Fars News Agency (FNA) said.

    Given the fact that the Pakistani civilians who have come under the US drone attacks have been afflicted with different skin, optic and respiratory diseases, it can be concluded that Washington is using chemical weapons in its attacks in Pakistan, the physicians said.

    "Since the missiles launched by the US drones contain dangerous chemical substances, a large number of the injured people in these attacks cannot be declared as dead or alive since they have been afflicted with complicated diseases due to the deadly chemical materials used in the missiles," a Pakistani physician, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told FNA.

    Another physician in one of the biggest hospitals in Peshawar also lamented that there is no complete information about the patients injured in the US drone attacks and transferred to the state hospitals in different cities of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

    Officials and political figures as well as the people in Pakistan are all furious at the US drone attacks on their country.

    In April, Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Chief Lieutenant General Ahmad Shuja Pasha called for an end to Washington's air raids on Pakistan as well as an end to the US espionage operations in the country, asking Washington to pull its spies out of Pakistan.

    The issue was raised by Shuja Pasha in a meeting with Leon Panetta, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia.

    Political observers say that if the US ignores Islamabad's abovementioned demands, the Pakistani Army and the ISI will likely cut Islamabad's cooperation with the US.

    US drone attacks have escalated in Northwest Pakistan since President Barack Obama took office. More than 100 raids were reported in the area last year.

    The drone attacks arouse deep and broad anger within the Pakistani population against both the US and the Pakistani government.

    Many Pakistani politicians and former officials have blasted the Islamabad government for its weak stances against the US and its drone attacks on innocent Pakistani people.

    This looks dubious, but this is early on so we don't know whether the claim is true or not. The fact the physician went to the Iranians and not a more independent or less biased source of news makes this a sensationalist claim.

    cant rule it out ..... if you look at the co-operation between pak and dragon , it should make usa (and indeed india ) deeply concerned ....dragon is investing all the more heavily in pak with all forms of investment , eg financial dam projects giving 50 JF17's etc ....it seems like dragon's last stand in asia ....a real proxy war is in the making and it 's gettiing to a stage of being really desperate .

    You can't rule it out, its the Americans we're talking about here.

    But then again, the attacks are taking place on Pakistan's soil, so I don't really care.

    Agent Orange were not used to target civilians, although civilians did suffer side effects as a result of exposure to it. The main target of Agent range were the dense trees covering the North Koren jungle. These drastic measure was employed so that US spotters can easily see through the jungle (by removing the jungle)! This strategy proved to be a failure. The civilian collateral effects proved far too costly compared to whatever tactical gains were achieved, if ever it achieved anything.

    They could be referring to the Thermobaric warhead on one of the Hellfire variants. It has the deadly Phosphorous compounds which are quite dangerous and one of the reasons why many countries have banned the warhead.

    The Griffin could be carrying a thermobaric component as well. But that's just an assumption.

    india has to some extent to voice care bcos pakland is next door ...unless were talking about such measures taking place ONLY in NWFP which is beyond the buffer .... so one way is for india to get involved in the "MANAGEMENT " of the situation , which then makes it a target - so you see , it's not really that easy to turn the head aside when something is goin on next door - unless it's "only" in NWFP , wazirstan or waristan ( or rather war-i-stan ... hah !)
