毛-ist Rebels kick as in Nepal
The ruling Nepal government is in a state of crisis. The Maoist guerrillas might now control 80 percent of the country and the King has declared a state of emergency. All political parties have been banned and the King has taken full control of the government, dissolving parliament. Newspapers have been shut down and heavily censored by the military. The Bush administration is quite alarmed at these events. Bush had declared the guerrillas “terrorists” and fears the new state of emergency will only make matters worse. The US, Britain and India, which has Maoist guerrillas of its own, are all pumping weapons and aid to Nepal.
