I wonder if we will send our forces into Kyrgyzstan in order to uh,"spread democracy." or er,"stabilize." the situation.
I wonder if this revolt has anything to do
with Karzai changing sides all of a sudden

Perhaps Mikeboyd can find a recent picture of Karzai with a Russian ice-cream in his hand.

This is an opposition fighter
Note the holographic reflex sight on his weapon.
That is an American made sight from Eotech, they cost around $400 US dollars. They cannot be legally exported outside the US. They are used by special operators, private contractors, and some foreign special operations groups.
Also note the modifications to the weapon being held by the man next to him, specifically the muzzle break. Thats another interesting out of place item.

Opposition leader Roza Otunbayeva, formerly the Kyrgyz foreign minister, said the parliament was dissolved, adding that she would head the interim government. She said the new government controlled four of the seven provinces in the Central Asian nation, home to a key US military base supporting the fighting in Afghanistan that the opposition has said it wants to close.
