Pakistan Foreign Minister: Drones Are Top Cause Of Anti-Americanism | Common Dreams

You mean Pakistanis don’t like drones flying over them ready to unleash death and destruction at any moment?

Pakistan’s foreign minister said last night that the top cause of anti-Americanism in her country is the U.S. use of drone attacks.

Agence France Presse reports Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar’d comments in a speech in New York to the Asia Society :

“The use of unilateral strikes on Pakistani territory is illegal. It is illegal and it is unlawful.”

Asked during her address why polls find that anti-American sentiment in Pakistan is among the world’s highest, Khar answered with one word: “Drones.”

“As the drones fly over the territory of Pakistan, it becomes an American war and the whole logic of this being our fight, in our own interest, is immediately put aside and again it is a war imposed on us,” she said.
