I don't presume to speak for most Americans but I think they don't care so much about the drones. Frankly there is a "disconnect" when people look at his policies, I think. They hate Bush for things that they don't blink an eye over for Obama. Strange.... If we were not using the drones we'd have to be sending JSOC operators on the ground to get these "targets". While there would probably be fewer innocents being hit, we would almost certainly be losing more soldiers KIA. Americans are tired of losing soldiers.

I really don't understand why any "Innocents" are being hit. WHY? Do these things have faulty vision? .. If your information is that sketchy .. don't kill anyone •

I believe SOME innocents are targeted/hit on purpose . I'll leave it your imaginations to figure out WHY that might be the case.

Drone 'warfare' disgusts me. As did/does Bush and Obama . I don't believe for an instant that either of them create "policy".

Expect for the most part the Pakistani government is cool with the use of drones, only seriously objecting when there's a huge public outcry. I even think the drones make use of an airfield within Pakistan. So not really the same situation.

I wonder if Nobel learned their lesson on handing out preemptive peace prizes?

I doubt it. Remember that they also awarded the "peace" prize to Henry Kissinger.

I may be confused - happens frequently - but I think the Pakistani government is being threatened by the Taliban also. Their army has been fighting them as long as we've been there. It's the ISI that is in bed with the militants and isn't THAT weird? It's a truly schizophrenic situation and they have about 160 nukes and ballistic missiles.
