    Now dare you call them passive and sell outs.

    Patience pal. May be a few years it takes for them to instead of simply wiping out the Royal Army, to revolution it from within and without.

    Revolution in minds of a reactionary regime agents’ brain is more valuable than simply killing them, in the long run.

    Green Red, fact of the matter is that the Nepalese Army is a bit larger than the PLA. This is why they’re recruiting to bring their numbers at a larger scale. The UCPN-M have spoken of this quite highly before. So it’s a good idea for them to start recruiting again instead of them merely trying to wipe out the Nepalese Army.

    True, thanks for pointing.

    I was pointing out the people who claim that Nepalese Maoists have thoroughly abandanod armed struggle option.
