Just wonderful - Maoists have taken over Nepal and guess who is in the heart of it.

| 2 Comments
From Voice of America:
Maoists Head to Victory in Nepal's National Assembly Election
Maoists have taken to the streets of Nepal's capital to celebrate although election results will not be finalized for days, if not weeks. The former rebels have reason to be jubilant as officials say the Maoist party has won more than half of the constituencies declared so far.

Although unlikely to secure an outright majority under the complex electoral system, the Maoists could be in a position to lead a coalition government. And the first official duty of the elected special assembly will be to declare the country a republic, ending Nepal's two-and-a-half century old royal dynasty.
And guess who was in Kathmandu helping them celebrate:
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, speaking in Kathmandu on Saturday, said he hopes the election results would lead Washington to accept the former rebels as legitimate political players in Nepal. "If the Maoists do continue to gain substantial status among the candidates, which we don't yet know, then my hope is that the United States will recognize and begin to do business with the Maoists."
And of course:
...United States which still considers Nepal's Maoists a terrorist organization.
Good old Jimmy -- never met a terrorist he didn't like. And isn't aiding and abetting terrorist activity considered treason? Sure is in my book.
