A large portion of our drone program is conducted in Pakistan, where strikes are carried out very frequently. The problem is that these frequent drone strikes are largely causing the country to become destabilized. Their usage is incredibly controversial (and widely hated) by the people and the government of Pakistan, and there is often backlash among the population. Their usage causes people to join terrorist organizations to get back at the US for attacks, and continues to prevent relations between America and Pakistan from becoming powerful. Relations between the two countries would certainly be helpful at stopping other destabilizing factors in the Middle East and ensuring that Pakistan stays a stable enough state so that their nuclear weapons don’t fall into the hands of terrorists. Thus, it’s time that the United States was held more accountable for drone strikes and restrained them in Pakistan.
