Something Stirring In India's East

I stumbled across an article talking about how Maoists are recruiting people.

I thought it was interesting because our trip to India was adversely affected due to some instability in India's East. And this kept us from seeing places like Hundru Falls, Barehipani Falls, Joranda Falls, and Chitrakote Falls (they're all within Maoist- and Naxalite-influenced areas).

After reading through this article, I couldn't help but see the implications this has on what's going on in Pakistan (with the flooding affecting some 20 million people and counting). I wonder if Al Qaeda and the Taliban see a major opportunity for recruitment by being the first (as well as the last) to offer aid and money before the Western World acts...
