Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani is optimistic that after a dialogue with US President-elect Barack Obama's administration, the drone strikes in the country's tribal region will come to an end.
"The air strikes by US spy plans will halt with the starting of dialogues as soon as Barack Obama takes charge of his office," Gillani told the media in Karachi.
Pakistani Parliament, President, Prime Minister, Opposition leaders, and Armed Forces chiefs have time and again denounced the attacks and condemned violation of its territory terming it "a big hazard" in building a consensus in Pakistani society to join hands in government's war against militants.
Pakistan Army Chief General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani will take up the issue of unending drone strikes by US forces in tribal region of the country in his three-day interaction with Nato Defence Chiefs.
"During the meeting the Army Chief will call for a comprehensive approach towards complexities of security, including implications of drone strikes in Fata (Federally Administered Tribal Area) of the country," said a statement from the Armed Forces spokesman.
Kayani's visit to Brussels will commence from November 18 on a special invitation from the Chairman Nato Military Committee Admiral Giampaolo Di Paolo.
The Committee is the highest military forum and meets regularly to discuss issues concerning Nato. It provides advise on military matters to Nato's civilian decision making bodies, North Atlantic Council, Defence Planning Committee and Nuclear Planning Group.

We still need those drones, especially if Obama carries through on his threat to invade Pakistan.
How much are we paying our Pakistani “allies” again?
Obama hasn’t the foggiest idea on foreign policy
He will do what ever his string pullers tell him to do
They will just let him make the speeches
Obviously not enough...
The liberals criticized Bush for “not getting Bin Laden”.
What will they say if Obama pulls our drones out?
Obama is unfit for the Office of the President-elect.
LOL... Well said! And so true...
Gee...During the campaign, didn’t Obama state that he would be willing to invade Pakistan?
But Obama said he would invade Pakistan.
Sure the bombing in the tribal region will stop for a short time while we bomb all their nukes.
Yeah, and during his campaign, Bill Clinton said he was going to get tough with the Chicoms. Then he sold them the store.
Nothing new here.
Guess I should have added a sarcasm alert to me post. ;-)
Obama adds a touch of LBJ to his channeling of Lincoln and FDR. Henceforth all air strikes will be approved by the Oval Office. In other news, John McCain finds himself suddenly locked into a flashback loop and is hospitalized. Similar things are happening to all Vietnam Era pilots.
No, I got the sarcasm. I was just trying to add some historical perspective. Dems keep lying and they keep getting elected. :-)
Remember when he promised to GET tough on Pakistan? Time to keep track of everything he said to get elected.
It’s too bad that most public schools don’t *honestly* require that history be LEARNED, isn’t it? ;-/
Those drones will be re-directed to watch us! Us being the Messiah Obama non-believers and dissenters. Welcome to the change aka “the New Order.”
"Dithering Barry", teleprompter reader extraordinaire, hopes to change us into a Zimbabwe clone.
Of all the posts on this clown I think yours has come the closest to describing what is really happening.
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama issued a pointed warning yesterday to Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, saying that as president he would be prepared to order U.S. troops into that country unilaterally if it failed to act on its own against Islamic extremists.
” “The air strikes by US spy plans will halt with the starting of dialogues as soon as Barack Obama takes charge of his office,”
A friend of mine is convinced that Obama will be the one to “ get “ Osama.
He became convinced of this , when during at least one debate, he heard Obama say he would “ kill “ Osama.
Coming from the mouth of such a wimpy guy, who is probably afraid to kill a fly-it struck him has very odd.
And way too confident.
He thinks OBL is already dead and some Muslim country has the body or parts of it.
And that they long ago made a deal with Obama.
Obama orders some air strikes on a cave and
they make sure the right DNA gets planted.
And -Voila-Obama, who understands the Muslim culture ,
( unlike that hated George Bush ) gets to “ kill “ OBL.
It softens the blow in Muslim countries and gives Obama the excuse he needs to withdraw all forces.
Obama is dead, therefore the War on Terror is over.
The media, his voters and the world would eat it up.
Musharraf is no longer President and Obama is no longer a candidate so His statement no longer applies.
I said it here first. What does anyone want to bet thats what Hims says IF the MSM ever brings it up.
Let us consider we have not had a terrorist attack on American soil for 2628 days. As the New Bright Change arrives to Make Everything better, Thank George Bush and the military for protecting us.
God Bless George Bush, and God Bless the United States of America.
This way Osama Bin Laden can put on his Speedos and get in his Hot Tub in peace!!
Maybe the boy's right; maybe this is that "international crisis" (or, at least, one thereof) that Joey Biden warned us about - the one that most Americans will think that Hussein f___ed up. We stop the Predator raids on the Taliban and Al Qaeda in exchange for a Paki promise that they'll all vote "we have a more favorable impression of the US" the next time Mr. Gallup's in Islamabad.
