Obvious Statement of the Year

US drone attacks in Pakistan are destabilizing, the Pakistani military reports. They've killed a lot of al Qaeda people, but they've also killed a lot of civilians, radicalized the population, and of course al Qaeda is recruiting newer and even more ideological people to fill out the ranks.

Amazingly, the US military has once again underestimated the degree to which dropping bombs on a population will upset them.
