Strikes On US Mainland?
Al Jazeera Video Report

Drone attacks on Pakistan's tribal areas have intensified in recent days.

The raids come after it was revealed that the US government had granted approval to the CIA to expand drone attacks to lower-level members of Taliban and al-Qaeda fighters.

But the attacks have caused growing anger in Pakistan, as civilians continue to be killed and homes and villages are destroyed.

Jamshed Ayaz Khan, a Pakistan-based defence analyst, told Al Jazeera that a "hundred per cent [of Pakistanis] are against the drone attacks".

"I have not seen anybody who is in favour of drone attacks," he said.

Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder reports from Islamabad, Pakistan's capital.
