  • Violence Mounts in Kyrgyzstan

    I’ve written about the problems in Kyrgyzstan several times. It’s not something making the news most places. It started with the fall of a pretty corrupt government and now seems to be drifting into ethnic cleansing against the Uzbek minority and the possibility of wars with its neighbors over border issues. This block of former Soviet republics in central Asia is a potentially very bad neighborhood, and I have the feeling we will soon look back on the comparative stability of this last decade with some nostalgia.

    Here is a link to an article on the latest developments.

    Here is a link to another article on the violence, this one from Radio Free Europe.
