US out of Uzbekistan!

I'm a day late on it - the U.S. is being evicted from Uzbekistan in 180 days by the Karimov government, possibly over recent aid in transferring Andijan 'fugees, possibly over a desire to be closer to Russia and China.

The place to be is this thread on Harry's Place, which is positively salubrious, and features comments by Craig Murray, former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan. OMG!!! can u believe it?!? I <3 the internet!
