US should restrict guns, protect rights, Chinese paper says

SHANGHAI, Global Times: The United States should learn from China and “genuinely” protect human rights by restricting gun ownership, an editorial in a widely read state-run Chinese newspaper said on Friday. The editorial in the Global Times newspaper was published after a massacre at a high school in Florida last week, in which 17 students and staff were killed, reignited a long-running debate about gun control in the United States. “Washington has been pointing an accusing finger at other countries over human rights … However, more Americans have been killed by gunfire in the country than American soldiers being killed in all US wars,” the Global Times said.

बाह्य शक्तिहरूको रणभूमि बनेको नेपाल

निरक्षर निरौला — उसले सकेसम्म भारत र चीनका बिचमा द्वन्द्व निम्त्याएर क्षेत्रीय युद्ध गराउन चाहन्छ । यदि त्यसो गर्न सकिएन भने द्वीदेशीय युद्ध गराउने । त्यो पनि गर्न नसके चीन-भारतलाई एक जुट हुनै नदिने । भारत नेपालमा नियन्त्रित अस्थिरता चाहन्छ । अर्थात् पूर्णतः आफूद्वारा नियन्त्रित अस्थिरता । त्यसैले पनि चीनमा मात्रै हैन, भारतमा पनि चलखेल गर्नु अमेरिकी रणनीति हो । नेपालमा भारतको स्थायी र अन्तिम उद्देश्य त एउटै छ - नेपाललाई सकेसम्म सिक्किम बनाउने, त्यो नसके भुटान, त्यो पनि नसके फिजी बनाउने । आफ्नो रणनीतिको कार्यान्वयन गर्दै जाने क्रममा कुनै पात्र बिक्न तैयार भएन भने त्यो पात्रको हविगत कस्तो हुन्छ भन्ने कुरो बीपी कोइराला, मदन भण्डारी, पूर्ब राजा महेन्द्र, बीरेन्द्र र ज्ञानेन्द्र लगायतको जीवनको अन्तिम चरण हेर्दा थाहा हुन्छ ।
