It bothers me that the holier-than-thou Europeans (and their Atlanticist cousins running the New York Times) are hollering loudly against Russia on usurpation of democracy in Ukraine, and yet they won't say one critical word to China over the blatant mayhem it's causing in Nepal with its backing of the brutal communist insurgents there. On the contrary, the EU is preparing to remove any arms sales restrictions to China. The NYT tries to put the elected Nepalese parliamentary govt on equal footing with anti-democratic communists being backed by China.
I'd like to point out that the catalyst for the emergence of this insurgency has been China's alarm at the newly arrived US military in Afghanistan, which is on China's sensitive Western border. Because the Chinese are surprised and frightened about this, they have taken it upon themselves to start shoring up the strength on their Western borders by trying to knock over a neighboring govt in that region, to install a puppet govt and bring it under their sphere of influence.
I am at pains to emphasize that the timing of this insurgency is no coincidence here. The linkage is clear: US Military Arrival in Afghanistan - Maost Chicom Insurgency in nearby Nepal. This is not paranoid imagination. This is realpolitik.
