They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

Pakistan: US supports some killing

Sometimes a military action becomes necessary to fight militancy and if Pakistan decides to take such an action against the militants, the United States will support the move, a senior US official said on Tuesday.

Assistant Secretary of State Richard Boucher also expressed the Bush administration’s intention to provide $300-350 million for training and providing better equipment to the Frontier Corps, including night-vision devices and body armour.

“Some military action is necessary and will have to be taken,” said Mr Boucher while assessing the current situation in the NWFP and the tribal region. “Some elements will have to be dealt with militarily, dealt with weapons.” Link
