Kyrgyzstan shuts U.S. air base

Kyrgyzstan's parliament voted on Thursday to close the last remaining U.S. air base in Central Asia, dealing a blow to U.S. efforts to use the region as a jumping-off point for its growing campaign in Afghanistan.

Well it seem that the USA is losing his grip to Russia. Russia is getting stronger and playing a chess game vs the US. What does it mean for the future?

Good! Maybe it will save us money.

Oh wait, that means less revenue for the military industrial complex. We can't have that.

When Condoleeza Rice visited Cental Asia in 2005 (in the midst of the Hurrican Katrina debacle/distraction, so no one noticed) they said they were going to do this....close all U.S. bases. I'm surprised they waited this long.

That was not a great tour for her overall. I seem to recall her being unwelcome and also told by a few of the other countries that they were going with Russian bases. But funny...it seems the one article i remember reading about this in (rather mainstream) Quelles shock.

All I got to say is about time. Now more countries need to shut down U.S. bases, so that the corporations that run this country start to diminish, since they are getting rejected.

This is the only way to start the world's peace process.

After the passing of the "stimulus" packages it doesn't really matter any more. There's no money to save.
