Maoists Don't Negotiate
Maoists hit themselves in the head repeatedly in an attempt to eliminate any remaining common sense they may posess.
Blogdai gets tired of all those pundits in the media, experts in the UN, and idiots in the 7 parties spewing out vociferously how we must bring the Maoists to the negotiating table and work out a peaceful solution. Well, it makes Blogdai feel a little vociferous as well:
THE MAOISTS DON'T WANT A PEACEFUL SOLUTION!
Everyone should get this through their heads as soon as possible. Maoists have had many good chances at the negotiating table and have either walked away abruptly or sabotaged talks by refusing to negotiate. They use talks to regroup for other attacks, period.
Maobadis are not rocket scientists; they have a very simple and strict plan--no variations. They base their operations on Mao's own concepts of a phased revolution. Maoists can't seem to think beyond these concepts of "Stratgic Defense," "Strategic Balance," followed by a "Strategic Offensive." From their own admissions, they are now waiting for the appropriate moment to stage their "Offensive." Also by their own admission, that spate of failed talks from 2000 to 2003 was considered a perfect execution of Mao's "Strategic Balance" phase.
Reporter Suman Pradhan recently returned from talking with Maoists in Rolpa and his interview with a Maoist big-shot was quite telling. Comrade Prashant, Mr. Maoist, tells our reporter:
“The Shining Path failed when Comrade Gonzalo misread the international situation,” said Prashant. “He could not take advantage of the contradictions in the international situation at that time. Without taking such advantage, he mounted a last-ditch attempt on Lima and failed. We are not making that mistake. We know the international situation and are determined to take advantage of it before we make the final push.”
Does that mean that whatever is happening in Delhi and the reported Maoist contacts with other international powers are an attempt to take advantage of the contradictions in the inherent international situation?
Comrade Prashant only smiled.
So are all these recent gestures only a tactical move?
