I often hear about how wonderful the internet is for school kids and all and I never really thought about it till last night.
I was in one of the alt.newsgroups. I think it was either Bangladesh or Pakistan, anyway they had a link to the history of the subcontinent and this author gave a really great and informative history of Pakistan and Bangladesh.
However he had one line. In 1971 Bangladesh parted ways and became independent of Pakistan.
That was it. He skipped over the entire war. He never again mentions how Bangladeshi (is that correct??) people still don’t like Pakistan.
This got me to thinking just how reliable do you think the internet is? I mean up until that point pretty much everything jived with everything else I’ve read on Bangladesh/Pakistan.
