    It's bad enough to cite Russia Today when we're talking about American or European issues, but it's downright ridiculous to listen to anything it has to say when it's talking about a situation where its patron is so deeply involved. It's like reading Xinhua to find out what's going on with Tibet.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    I listen to reliable news wherever it comes from. I don't listen to state-run propaganda enterprises.

    Ethnic Fissures Imperil Stability of Kyrgyzstan - NYTimes.com
    ...The provisional Kyrgyz government has lost control of large areas in the southern part of the country because of its failure to quell attacks that have killed at least several hundred ethnic Uzbeks, and possibly many more. ... Moreover, as many as 400,000 have fled their homes. Barricading themselves in their cities and neighborhoods, Uzbeks have essentially set up autonomous zones and are refusing to recognize the authorities in the capital. ... the government has charged that the deposed president, Kurmanbek S. Bakiyev, incited the violence as a way to return to office.

    Re: 400,000 flee violence in Kyrgyzstan; US base threatened

    Sigh! I am really sad about what is happening in Kyrgyzstan. I was there a couple of years ago. It is the only country in Central Asia where it is easy to get a tourist visa. The nature is so pure and unspoiled there, because it is the wild west of travelling, which has prevented tourists from going there and spoiling it. As well that, the governments have been so unstable there, that investors dont want to touch it, which has prevented most of the spoiling, because I doubt any Kyrgyzstani government would have made rules to protect the environment and Kygyzstani people from being exploited by foreign industry. The current violence is likely to not only prevent the nature being spoiled, but to also deprive a lot of families of the summer income they get from the few tourist like me, who come alone, during the short period every year when the weather there allows it.
