Kyrgyzstan Revolution: Kyrgyz Politics

A variety of news sources indicate that opposition leaders are making their way to Bishkek to rally protestors in the capital. As I mentioned in my earlier blog (see below), leadership and government apparatuses have more to lose up north and could offer more resistance. Osh, was eerily quiet today. People are edgy. Apparently, there was a large meeting scheduled to take place at the main square in Osh this afternoon. I, for one, have remained mostly indoors...I'll be pouring over the news articles and blogs i've cut-and-pasted all night and hope to have a more thorough and comprehensive blog tomorrow. Airport is still closed. Police and Army officials are no where to be seen.

  • Thanks Larry, Glad you're o.k. Talked with Taylor Sunday night and all was quiet in Darhan & Karakol. They knew nothing of what was happening. There's been some coverage in the states on FOX and CNN. Major networks have done nothing...they prefer to cover the latest in pet fashions instead of international news! Stay safe! Again, thanks for the info!
