India-Pakistan: April 18, 2002



Several incidents in Kashmir left one policeman, three rebels and three civilians dead. Two of the civilians were thought to have been killed because the rebels suspected them of being informers. The most common cause of civilians getting killed in Kashmir are rebel attempts to drive out non-Moslems, or kill pro-Indian informers. Civilians also get killed and wounded when caught in the middle of gun battles. On the Line of Control, rebels, covered by fire from Pakistani troops, set off two dozen bombs in an attempt to disrupt India's effort to build a fence along the border.

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.
