Kyrgyzstan President Signs Law to Close US Base
Kyrgyzstan President Kurmanbek Bakiyev has signed a law to close an air base that serves as a key supply facility for U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan.
Mr. Bakiyev signed the measure Friday, one day after Kyrgyzstan's parliament voted overwhelmingly in favor of a government-backed bill to end U.S. access to the Manas air base.
So what happens now?
RIA Novosti reports that the US may look at Turkey following Kyrgyz base closure
But, Turkey is claiming they haven't been asked
Turkish army says no demands yet from US for local military base
Which means, maybe they haven't been asked. Or maybe they have, but aren't going to mention it at this time. Who really knows?
But wait, there is always Uzbekistan.
Except their leader is a tyrant. He has actually boiled people alive.
Oh, well that is just what the US government likes, so really, no problem there!
