At least nine “militants” were killed when US drones targeted a vehicle at 7 pm on Tuesday in the Sheen Khwar area on the outskirts of Humzonee village
In an effort to avoid criticism for murdering thousands of random civilians, the term militant is defined by the Obama administration as being a male over the age of 18 (military age).

The official told The Express Tribune that four missiles were fired on the vehicle. He added that it could not be ascertained whether any senior insurgents were among the dead.
“The militants were leaving a house for an undisclosed location when they were attacked by the drones,” the official said.
A local tribesman said that he was on the way to his house when two drones launched four missiles on the militants’ vehicle, adding that the militants were from the group of Hafiz Gul Bahadur, an influential commander who is believed to be hosting the Haqqani network, the deadliest of all Afghan Taliban groups.
Another official in Miramshah said a compound near the vehicle was also damaged in the strike. “One of the missiles also hit a nearby compound which was badly damaged after catching fire,” he said.
Earlier on Sunday, at least six militants were killed when US drones fired missiles twice in North Waziristan.
Humzonee village is inhibited by the Dawar tribe and is located close to the Miramshah market.
There has been a dramatic increase in US drone strikes in Pakistan since May, this year.

The Obama administration continues to proudly kill as many people near and around Pakistan as they can. Everyday the people of Pakistan become more and more outraged by the increasing violence via drone strikes that is being perpretrated against civilians in that country. By defining “militants” as young men, we are creating the next generation of real militants. What choice do they have? Fight back or roll over and wait to die seems to be their only options. Meanwhile, Obama spends millions on the campaign trail and sleeps well knowing that more Pakistani civilians die every day.
People who care about national security in America should be outraged and should demand everyday that these drone strikes stop immediately.
