U.S. Missile Attacks Kill 9 in Pakistan

Sweet !
May the Missile strikes continue !

MIR ALI, Pakistan -- Suspected U.S. unmanned aircraft launched two missile strikes in a Pakistani tribal region along the Afghan border, killing nine people, Pakistani intelligence officials said.

A militant attack on an army checkpoint killed five Pakistani soldiers elsewhere in the northwest on Friday, other officials said.

The missile attacks targeted two villages near Mir Ali in North Waziristan, intelligence officials said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk with the press.

The officials said three were killed Friday during the first missile strike, which hit a vehicle in Machi Khel. The dead have not yet been identified, but the village is known to house a mix of militants from the Afghan Taliban and local Pakistani insurgent groups.

The second missile strike occurred several hours later, killing six suspected militants at a house in Aziz Khel.
