Meanwhile... the third war we're totally not fighting, three US missile attacks in the Khyber tribal region of Pakistan reportedly killed "killed 54 alleged militants."

Less newsworthy, naturally, than the already barely audible news of the third war we're fighting: "Human rights groups say there are significant numbers of civilian casualties in the attacks."

There have been "more than 100 missile attacks this year inside Pakistan," but: "US officials do not acknowledge firing the missiles, much less comment on who they are targeting. It is impossible to independently report on the aftermath of the attacks because outsiders are not allowed to visit the tribal regions."
