India-Pakistan: December 4, 2002



India and Russia reaffirmed their military and economic ties. While Russia sells weapons and technology cheap, increasing numbers of Indians are dismayed at the shoddy quality of the Russian goods.

The new pro-Islamic governments in Pakistan are releasing terrorism suspects arrested during the Afghanistan campaign. Today, 13 known militants were released, and 140 other suspects were let go as well.

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.

  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.
