Bombings are acts of terrorism

The UK assists the US in sending drones to rain high-explosives onto our ally Pakistan, in the certain knowledge that many civilians will be killed or maimed.

Recently the dead included 24 Pakistani soldiers.

The best estimate of the number of deaths (about 3,000) suggests that it will shortly match the number of deaths caused by the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001.

Yet no western media outlet dares to refer to these bombings as acts of terrorism. Why?
