With hopes and trepiditions...

Latest heart in mouth peoples uprising in Kyrgyz. At the moment totally unclear which ways it will go. Kyrgyz like other of the High Mountain states ex the unlamented USSR has a border drawn to suite external manipulation.

Follow events on the Institute for War and Peace Reporting Kyrgyz roundup.

Good summary of events on Booman Tribune. Note the further links to the Kyrgyz Election series on that site (Soj's summaries one, two, three and four.)

Now this little place impacts on Russia, Tajikstan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and China. So if it can emerge from all this with a more than half decent chance of freedom it will be of more than local importance...
