Here we see again the Obama Doctrine in action - attack Pakistan.
Note also how the idiotic euphoria over Messiah Obama in the leftist media has begun to evaporate now that the first action of the new Messiah will be to demand Britain sends more troops to Afghanistan to fight the Taliban whilst the US attacks Pakistan.
Yep - the lemmings voted in a Left Wing US Imperialist to replace a Right Wing US Imperialist.
From Neo-Conservative to Neo-Trotskyite.
US drones have fired at least three missiles into a Pakistani tribal region, killing 12 people, including five foreigners, in an area known as a stronghold of Pakistani Taliban commander Baitullah Mehsud.

Pakistani officials said the attack targeted a house in a remote village on the border between North and South Waziristan, where Mehsud, an ally of al-Qaeda, has been since early this year.
"We have reports that 12 people were killed, including five foreigners," a paramilitary official said
Frustrated by fighters from Pakistan fuelling the Taliban insurgency in Afghanistan and fearful of al-Qaeda regrouping, US forces have intensified missile attacks by pilotless drones since early September.
Pakistan has condemned the violations of its territory and argues that the attacks fuel anger towards the US and undermines the government's own efforts to garner people's support for the campaign against militancy.
The latest attack coincided with a visit by the commander of NATO-led forces in Afghanistan to Islamabad.
North Waziristan is a stronghold of Taliban and al-Qaeda militants suspected of mounting attacks on US troops in neighboring Afghanistan.
It is part of the lawless Pakistani tribal belt where US officials suspect that Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri are hiding.
