The US has become addicted to killing innocents with drones but ultimately, it is the responsibility of the Pakistani government to protect its people.

Killing people by drone missiles may save American soldiers from getting killed in war zones but for the victims, drones are terrible weapons. Increasingly, many legal experts have declared these strikes as war crimes. It is high time the Pakistani government took a bold stand and demand that the Americans stop all such attacks. The Pakistan Air Force has the ability to shoot down drones. What is holding the government in Islamabad from shooting them down if the Americans do not stop their lethal attacks?
