Nepal: April 5, 2005


The unrest caused by the Maoist terrorism is hurting the economy. In the first three months of this year, the two biggest foreign exchange earners, tourism and apparel/textile exports, fell by about a third. Growing unemployment creates more unrest. The Maoists believe that if they can cause economic collapse, they can take over and establish a communist dictatorship. Many Nepalese fear that the Maoists would establish a murderous communist terror, as did the communist Cambodian Khmer Rouge in 1975. The Khmer Rouge went on to kill over a million people in their attempt to establish a workers paradise.
