Nepal's King Fighting Communists

King Gyanendra of Nepal is getting heat since taking over the country February 1 and firing the government, an article in the Las Vegas Sun reports.

"When we have chosen to uphold democracy and fight against terrorism, why are they shying away from helping us?" the king was quoted as saying. "I can see one thing clearly emerging out of it. Our objectives are the same. We are going to meet somewhere. But we have chosen maybe different paths in attaining that objective."
The king said he wanted support from India, Britain and the United States in the fight against Maoist rebels.

Read the whole article at here. Time will tell, but the King truly seems to have good intentions.

Stay tuned.
