There are no drones in Pakistan!

Favorite thing OK there are a few drones according to all of the news sources. Eurasia Review reports the first drone strike took place in June 2004 in South Waziristan. Under American President Bush, there were about 21 total drone attacks, killing perhaps 177 people. Under President Obama, attacks have increased tremendously with 87 drone attacks, leaving 700 dead (data as of August 15th 2010). Some reports indicate that these drone strikes have killed over 600 civilians and just 60 militant leaders.

C. Christine Fair writes, however, that the so-called "innocent" civilians are often supporters or collaborators of the militants that were targeted. She even notes that residents of the FATA know the drones are precise, so instead of fearing the drones, the locals just avoid people who might be targeted.
