India-Pakistan: February 17, 2002



In Kashmir, rebels attacked a Hindu village, killing eight and wounding six civilians. While the Moslem rebels in Kashmir have long attacked non-Moslems in Indian Kashmir, in Pakistan, this is often blamed on India, as a ploy to make Moslems look bad. 

Pakistan will be billing the US $60 a month for logistical support provided to American forces operating in Afghanistan. Pakistan is also seeing a noticeable boost in its economy because of all the money going into Afghanistan (and usually buying stuff from Pakistani firms.)

Indian border guards have killed 35 Bangladeshis on the border over the last six months, including four over the weekend. Most of the dead men (and many more who apparently fled) were trying to sneak into India.

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.
