Word Search

Sometimes it takes a while to really understand and define the distorted narrative that you're trying to counter.


Other times, it's more obvious.


For the record, that is NOT the U.S. goal in Pakistan, despite what the Pakistan Today puzzle editors might think.

Now that is sad and scary at the same time.

Yet an impressively effective way to communicate with the masses.

Wow.

How sad to know after all America has tried to do there so many still have such a negative opinion of us. Stay Safe!

Well, in fairness, this is just one view from one paper -- not necessarily uncommon, but just one view. Media here is still working itself out.

That's brilliant. Would you mind if I shared it? I can leave the identifying info off, if you'd prefer.

I found your blog from a google search on being single in the FS. Thanks for doing it!

You're welcome to share it, and no need to remove any identity markers -- people who wish for anonymity shouldn't have blogs. Thank you for asking, though.

This may not be America's goal but the people of Pakistan certainly think that way. There is so much disparity between the two countries that coming to any conclusion is unlikely. And there are so many conspiracy theories that baffle the common man. There is no point in going into details because everyone has their own opinions and beliefs - which I respect, but since I am the maker of the word puzzle in question, I felt a comment was necessary.

Thanks for your comment, Artelle. It's too bad that your puzzle didn't encourage people to think critically about the many conspiracy theories you mentioned. If you ever want to talk about things with us, people at the Consulate General are happy to chat with you.
