    No, but this next example is.

    U.S. Evicted From Air Base In Uzbekistan

    Uzbekistan formally evicted the United States yesterday from a military base that has served as a hub for combat and humanitarian missions to Afghanistan since shortly after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Pentagon and State Department officials said yesterday.

    In a highly unusual move, the notice of eviction from Karshi-Khanabad air base, known as K2, was delivered by a courier from the Uzbek Foreign Ministry to the U.S. Embassy in Tashkent, said a senior U.S. administration official involved in Central Asia policy. The message did not give a reason. Uzbekistan will give the United States 180 days to move aircraft, personnel and equipment, U.S. officials said.

    If Uzbekistan follows through, as Washington expects, the United States will face several logistical problems for its operations in Afghanistan. Scores of flights have used K2 monthly. It has been a landing base to transfer humanitarian goods that then are taken by road into northern Afghanistan, particularly to Mazar-e Sharif -- with no alternative for a region difficult to reach in the winter. K2 is also a refueling base with a runway long enough for large military aircraft. The alternative is much costlier midair refueling.
    Not only did they kick us out, they let Russia in.

    This is not only speculation it is bizarre, uninformed, speculation.

    Then why did you post it?

    Now you post a link which you haven't read all the way through in order to understand what was really going on at the time. Read it to the end and you'll see what I mean.

    Do you sincerely believe that Barrack Obama could get the support of any countries of the world the way George Bush did in Iraq should he attempt something similar? If so, which country, or countries, do you think they might be?

    Not only did they kick us out, they let Russia in.
    Any idea why? Do you believe it was a lack of trust or confidence in George Bush?

    It was because we criticised our "allies" poor handling of a certian event in andijan, where the government machine gunned several hundred protestors.

    Iraq has never been stable. Something you're obviously blind to. Russia is right on Crimea, I haven't a problem with their response to US intrigue in Kiev, nor does China. And, Russia and China are closer than they've been in a long time. This is related to US policies during Bush and Obama presidencies. But I really don't care what a Canadian thinks about any US president, good or bad, sense you have no effect on it. Just another foreign Internet opinion.

    International politics are being discussed, Okie, so we all have an interest in what goes on.

    You said he was respected by our allies, and usebekistan evicted us from their airbase after we had the nerve to lightly chastise them.
