Good and Bad
A little movement in both directions today. First the good: Nepalnews.com reports that students are uprising and urging the Maoists to stay in government. Nice. This is the first time we've seen enough spine from the students to actively go against their counterparts in the Maoists.
Fed up possible? Tired of Maoists that never ever keep a promise? Sure these kids are in lock step with Girija, but it still takes balls to call out a Maoist and demand they toe the line. blogdai hopes this is a new trend in student fearlessness.
Bad news: Muslims. Riots in Kapilvastu have brought out a stronger muslim voice in Nepal. This voice is demanding protection. blogdai fears that with this new attention there will come more interference from muslim groups in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Know what happens after that? War on terrorism crap, that's what. Muslim extremists bring out a new set of priorities in the world's diplomatic agenda. Their presence also has a tendency of attracting Yanks with guns. Let's hope we keep these people quiet and give them the security they need.
The only problem is that Girija wouldn't know how to assign and implement a security plan even if it were attached to a bribe from Lauda Air. He's hopeless. For god's sake, die already, old man.
