India and Maoist Rebels: Echoes of the Worker's Paradise

Just a reminder that the conflict - or conflicts - going on today are not just in the Middle East, and don't always involve Muslims with a particularly violent view if Islam:

Maoists in India

Maoist rebels in eastern India took over some villages and killed more than 10 people who supported the Indian government.

The rebels, Naxalites, say they're fighting for the rights of the poor. My guess is that the point could be disputed. As for me, I remember the 'good old days,' when workers kept trying to escape from the worker's paradise.

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
