Tumblr.

23 Apr

After considering this for a while, I have decided to blog solely on Tumblr from now on. WordPress has been good to me but I prefer the social and community aspects of Tumblr. Please let me know if you are also on Tumblr and I will be happy to follow you. You can find my blog at www.aminamania.tumblr.com.

The Missing Piece in Pakistan: Civilians | Divanee – South Asian news and entertainment

21 Apr

Please read this article I wrote about civilian casualties in Pakistan as a result of US drone strikes in the northwestern region of the country. I had this research and interviewed the person who did it several weeks ago but was waiting for the right time to write about it. Now, with Pakistan asking for a decrease in strikes and the US refusing to do so, the question is more pertinent than ever: What is a civilian life worth?

From the varying numbers of reported civilian deaths to the omission of those statistics from formal research, the message seems to be that preserving civilian lives is not a priority.

I hope that people will read and respond to this article with their opinions — I would love to see some dialogue to find out how average Americans feel about this issue.

Here’s the link: The Missing Piece in Pakistan: Civilians | Divanee – South Asian news and entertainment.

Thanks in advance.
