Does anyone have any thoughts on the civil war in Nepal? I lived there for 4 months in 2001, just as things started to escalate badly ( I walked past the royal palace on the night of the massacre - quite possibly as it was going on, on my way to the 24 casino!). Having some historic ties to the country it seems a shame we can't 'lend a hand' as it were. I realise British forces are stretched accross the globe, but to defend liberty is its job I would think? Im not suggesting we send out an army or anything, but couldn`t we do more? From my time out there, it was apparent their respect for the UK is rediculously high, I don`t think they would see it as interfering in their affairs as most nations might... For those of you who might take the 'its their problem view' ...well wasn't Iraq 'someone elses problem'. The whole WMD was a bit of a red herring and America would have gone alone without us anyway... What do you all think?
