India-Pakistan: January 9, 2002



A US Marine KC-130 aerial tanker crashed (clipping the top of a ridge) while landing at a Pakistani airport. All seven marines aboard died. A Pakistani recon drone flew into Indian air space, triggering a lot of anti-aircraft fire. The drone then turned around and flew back into Pakistan. India has threatened "stronger measures" unless Pakistan starts cracking down on Kashmiri radicals based in Pakistan. These groups today threatened additional attacks on Indian military targets.  Gunfire across the line of control left a Pakistani policeman wounded. In Kashmir, an all day siege of two rebels in a mosque ended with one rebel dead and the other wounded and captured.

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. Because of falling ad revenues and the owners of the site wanting you to have a good experience, this poor pet bird (Drake) may end up as the turkey for the publisher’s Thanksgiving meal.

What can you do to help save the bird? There are three possibilities:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
