COMMENT - Now, why would Nawaz Sharif object to having his nation's airspace violated and citizens bombed to smithereens? Perhaps the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International should give him a stern talking to. He is clearly attempting to interfere with their exciting business plan and development for population control.

Pakistan's former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif
Tue May 14, 2013 1:30AM GMT
Nawaz Sharif, poised to become Pakistan’s prime minister for a third time, has called on Washington to end its drone strikes inside the country.
Speaking to reporters from his family's estate outside the eastern city of Lahore on Monday, Sharif said the drone strikes pose a "challenge" to Pakistan’s national sovereignty, The Associated Press reported.
"Drones indeed are challenging our sovereignty. Of course we have taken this matter up very seriously. I think this is a very serious issue, and our concern must be understood properly," said Sharif.
Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League-N party appeared on course to secure a majority of seats in Pakistan's parliament and form the next government after claiming victory in Saturday's election.
Pakistan’s tribal regions are often attacked by US assassination drones, with Washington claiming that militants are the targets. However, casualty figures clearly indicate that civilians are the main victims.
The London-based Bureau of Investigative Journalism said in a report released in February that the United States has carried out more than 360 assassination drone strikes in Pakistan since 2004, killing nearly 3,500 people.
The killing of Pakistani civilians, including women and children, has strained relations between Islamabad and Washington. MORE
