24. Excellent article exposing the counter productiveness of the drone war.
The Pakistani Taliban have never had an interest outside their region, until now. It is known as blowback.

For years now we have been radicalizing and giving weekly recruiting points for extremists. Now to the point of drawing the ire and hate of another extremist organization. More chickens will no doubt be coming home to roost.
