NEPAL – U.S. Terror Watch enlist Maoist Party Loses War, but Wins Election
Dream Merchants in Troublesome Victory
“We ask all, including the international community, not to suspect on our commitment regarding multi-party democracy.” – Prachanda, Chief of Nepal Communist Party(Maoist) & C-in-C of People’s Liberation Army(PLA)
“…we are also somewhat uneased by the sudden & unprecedented responsibility that comes with victory.” – Dr. Baburam Bhattarai, Chief of Parallel Maoist Government during Insurgency
The landslide victory of the Maoists in the Constituent Assembly polls exhibit the immense desire of the people for a complete overhaul of the state structures.
The verdict for change applies not only to all the organs of the state, but also to the Maoists themselves.
The greatest casualty in the election has been the Maoist & other ethnic hardline theory itself that fallaciously relied solely on arms as the means for social revolution.
A great blow to the corrupts demagouges as well by proving the adage: you may fool a person for some time, but you can not fool a people forever.
The Maoists’ victory also indicates the resistance against present & emerging superpowers, suggesting for a reassessment of the current political, military, economic, & cultural interventionist foreign policy.
