Listen, I know and you know that the U.S. didn’™t want to piss of Uzbekistan’™s government by signing onto an international condemnation of the heavy-handed crackdown on militants last year, where 175 were killed by Uzbeck government forces. You just know that had to eat at the Bush Administration, but they were left with two bad choices – sign on, and piss of the Uzbecks, or not sign on, and be seen as endorsing a (for all intents and purposes) tin pot dictator.

And we know how Dubya likes his tin pot dictators:

Uzbekistan’™s president, Islam Karimov, who has ruled for 16 years and tolerates no dissent, has blamed the violence on Islamic militants’¦

Hey, Karimov has a great resume for the Bush administration, if things get a little to hot for Karl.

Oh, yeah, and I forgot – Karimov just kicked the U.S. out of it’™s primary staging base for operations in Afghanistan.
