Nepal Celebrates end of Maoist Insurgency

Nepalis are celebrating the end of the Maoist insurgency and looking forward to a future of peace, tranquility and prosperity.

KATHMANDU, Nepal, Nov. 21 — Nepal’s government and Maoist rebels declared a formal end Tuesday to a decade-old civil war that killed about 13,000 people in one of the world’s poorest countries.

“The government of Nepal and the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) have agreed to convert the ongoing cease-fire into a permanent truce and declare that the war which began in Feb. 1996 is over,” said the accord, written in Nepali.

The deal provides for the insurgents to hand over their arms and be confined to U.N.-monitored camps in the run-up to elections for an assembly that will draft a new constitution and decide the future of the monarchy.It also clears the way for the insurgents to join an interim government that will oversee the elections, and for rebels to take seats with elected politicians in an interim parliament.

The rebels have been fighting to abolish Nepal’s more than 200-year-old monarchy and say the right to vote in the assembly satisfies their key demand. They have promised to honor the outcome even if the assembly decides to maintain a ceremonial monarch.

The key ingredient necessary for this accord to succeed is to make sure that the Maoists are disarmed. As long as they are armed, they are dangerous and can renege on any ‘agreement’ signed on a ‘piece of paper’ any time they wish. It is absolutely imperative for the Nepal govt and the international community to make sure that all the arms are taken away from the Maoist groups and they are disbanded as a fighting force.

It is also absolutely vital for India to keep an eye on these now unemployed Maoist cadres who might turn up as mercenaries selling their services to their ‘Naxalite comrades’ south of the border.

Nitin Pai of the Acorn analyses about what this accord means for the future of Nepal and how this affects India and its own problems with the Naxalite terrorists.

Rocket Missiles seized from Naxalites

This should really ring alarm bells in the Indian security establishment. If Nepal comes under Maoist domination then we could easily have a South Lebanon type situation on our hands. Where a small entrenched militia could easily fire rockets into Indian territory. And it looks like China is aiming for just that.They are planning to extend the Qinghai-Tibet railway to the Nepal border so that they could easily supply arms to the Maoists, smuggle their cheap slave labour made goods into the Indian market and have the option of rapidly deploying its armies to the Tibetan plateau.

600 rocket missiles seized in Andhra Pradesh

Hyderabad: In the biggest arms haul in Andhra Pradesh, the police have seized 600 rocket launchers in Mahabubnagar district meant to be used by Maoist guerrillas.

The weapons were recovered late on Thursday from a warehouse of a transport company at Atchampet, about 150 km from here. A man was arrested in this connection.

The police said the rocket missiles, which were ready to be filled with explosives, were meant to be transported to Nallamalla forests, the stronghold of the outlawed Communist Party of India-Maoist.

India Prevents Nepal Army from getting Arms

In one of the dumbest moves from a Indian National Interest perspective but perhaps a very good masterstroke from the Leftist perspective (wink, wink, nudge, nudge ).

India shoots down double bid by Nepal to get arms

Kathmandu, Sept 1 (IANS) In a “covert” manoeuvre that is bound to “affect” the ongoing “peace talks” with the Maoist guerrillas(terrorists), Nepal’s new government tried to get arms and ammunition from Europe but both bids were shot down by the Indian government.

The last time i checked Nepal was a sovereign state recognised by more than 150 countries across the world. It is also a member of the United Nations. It has every right to buy arms that it feels it needs for its own protection.

A huge shipment of 12.7 mm machineguns, ammunition, missiles and probably other weapons bought from Emco Ltd in Sofia, Bulgaria, was scheduled to reach Kathmandu last month.Along with a cargo of aircraft equipment from Sue Orsha Aircraft of Belarus, that could include pods to carry and shoot rockets, the arms cache was shipped to the Master General of Ordnance of the Nepal Army through Russian transporter Kosmos Air Company.Kosmos had shipped the cargo in two AN-12 aircraft.

So far so good……..

However, neither the senders nor the intended recipients had taken into account that the aircraft would have to pass through Indian air space.

Translation- Maybe they both thought that the Indian government will give a quite go ahead since it was well within India’s National Interests to see that the Nepal Army is well stocked, armed and strong enough to maintain effective control over its territory.

Big mistake!

The first one, while trying to reach Kathmandu via western Indian Gujarat state three days ago, was blocked by the Indian authorities and forced to land at the Ahmedabad Airport.

Shortly after the debacle, a second aircraft sought permission to land at Mumbai airport for refuelling before heading for Kathmandu but was denied permission.

For the uninitiated India’s foreign policy establishment was never geared towards the promotion and safeguarding of India’s National Interests. It acts like a leftist NGO movement in pursuance of that “warm, fuzzy feeling” inside which one gets during festive seasons like Christmas or Diwali or the one you get when you help little old ladies cross the street or when you agree to donate one day’s salary to some noble cause promoted by some yes, leftist NGO.

In its 59 year history since independence the Indian foreign policy establishment has promoted Utopian ideals like “Panchsheel”, NAM etc… It has consistently bartered away strong Indian positions for zilch. During the 1965 war it gave away the Haji Pir pass for nothing, in 1971 it gave away 93,000 Paki POW’s for nothing, it was about to parcel out Siachen quite recently again for nothing more than that “warm fuzzy feeling” inside. Again it is trying to do the same thing w.r.t to the Indo-US Nuclear deal. While the US is sharply focused on its own interests the Indian Foreign policy establishment is more focused on maintaining that new found “warm fuzzy feeling” between India and the US. The US well aware of the situation is giving swollen headed Indian diplomats and politicians more attention than they deserve by pandering to their egos and extracting their pound of flesh in return.

The Chinese and Pakistanis mastered that art long ago they have been selling placebos to the Indian foreign policy establishment for the last 59 years and extracting their pound of flesh. Just look at the pattern and it all becomes so very obvious.

And to close the loop the Indian leftist establishment has mastered the art of selling placebos to the Indian public, from Nehru’s speech on Aksai Chin to the PM Manmohan singh’s latest hoodwink act against the Indian Nuclear scientists.

Nepal: Teetering on the Brink of disaster

Nepal is in big trouble. Just like the Weimar republic paved the way for Hitler and the Nazis to take over Germany in the 1930s, The present ragtag “caretaker” SPA dispensation is paving the way for Prachanda and his band of Maoist thugs to finally take over Nepal.

The SPA(Seven party Alliance) had very foolishly back in April gone on the path of unilateral disarmament and threw away all its bargaining chips by making Nepal a virtual republic. They have in the meantime since then gone much, much further in order to appease the Maoists in the fervent hope that when the Maoists finally resume slitting throats all over the place they will slit theirs last and with atleast some compassion.

The pea-brained SPA led by a senile man who is counting his last days on this Earth(parallels with President Hindenburg anybody?) have signed a “landmark” Eight point agreement with the Maoists according to which the Government will “Effectively and honestly implement the 12-point understanding reached between the SPA and Maoists in November last year and the 25-point Ceasefire Code of Conduct signed between the SPA government and CPN-Maoist on May 26 this year”. While the Maoists will feel free to do as they please.

 The Maoists have virtually undermined government authority in the areas they occupy, they have violated the ceasefire and kidnapped a former Mayor, they have refused to disarm and they have also started a hate campaign to malign, demoralise and weaken the Nepali Army; the only force within Nepal that stands in their way to absolute power and which rightly condemned Maoist chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal alias Prachanda’s baseless allegations. The Army had to do this itself since the spineless SPA would not do so as per the statement given by a SPA Quisling.

 Now that the dumb SPA idiots have as part of the Unconditional Surrender agreement oops!! sorry, Eight point agreement agreed to shred the existing constituion and dissolve the Assembly they are left with virtually no power base or claim to legitimacy. The clever wording of the agreement virtually puts the Maoist thugs and the Nepali state on a equal basis by seeking UN intervention. The Maoists are demanding key portfolios in the Interim Government like Internal security, rural development and Foreign affairs.

The Maoists are also pushing for Nepal to be formally declared as a republic rather than a constitutional monarchy. If that happens Nepal as we know it is buried forever because the Monarchy is the only institution that holds Nepal together. There is a need to make a clear distinction between King Gyanendra the individual and the Monarchy as a institution. Just because Gyanendra is bad doesn’t mean that the Monarchy itself needs to be disbanded. The SPA should hold its ground and refuse to negotiate this away. It’s own survival is linked to it. But here too foolishness seems to be reigning. The pogrom of violence and intimidation against the Royalists has already begun and can be expected to rise even further as the days go on until perhaps the King might find no other option but to flee the country.

While Nepal is trying to find its feet the Indian side is unable to take a firm stand itself because of Sitaram Yechury, the CPI(M) pompous ass. Who is doing everything he can to uphold the interests of his Maoist comrades. Even going to the point of undermining the Indian position. The spineless UPA is not taking any steps to stop him and ask him to shut up. Both Nepal and India seems to be cursed at the same time with inept and useless governments which are undermining their own positions to appease the commie thugs in their own countries. Which never helps for the commies only negotiate a truce when it suits them and feel free to break any agreement when it suits them. May the Gods bless both India and Nepal.

Hail the New Weimar Republic!!

Nepal is now the newest (banana) republic on the block. With the King relegated to not even a figurehead. The declaration of Nepal as a “Secular” state has taken care of that technicality.

The Nepali Parliament has made a resolution today which left the King a mere mortal who has to now pay taxes like the rest of us.

The resolution also stripped the King of the title of “Supreme Commander” of the Royal Nepali Army, which has now also been renamed as the Nepali Army and placed under the control of the Cabinet. The Cabinet will now make all appointments and decisions related to the control and deployment of the Armed Forces.

And just to make sure the Royal Guard also has been placed under the control of the cabinet and the King’s inner circle, the Raj Parishad has been scrapped.

Also, the next King will be decided by the Parliament and not by the King himself- an insurance policy against King Gyanendra’s notorious son Paras.

So, why the comparison with the Weimar republic? Because these supposedly well meaning SPA have just paved the path for the Maoists to take over subsequently. Just like the Weimar republic paved the way for Hitler.

How? They have in their anger and thirst for payback have pulled down every institution in haste and now Nepal stands vulnerable. Power is lying on the streets to be picked up by the strongest and best organised group and right now that is the maoists. Hope something is done before its too late.
