Kyrgyzstan names new leadershipI still cannot assimilate the speed at which these events have occured, and the relative indifference of the media until the last two days - especially here in the US. It is simply incredible how much of a vacuum we live in some times. In any case, yet another "Revolution" (of the tulips this time), where "people power" topples a government. Well, hopefully the outcome is as happy as it was in Ukraine... because otherwise it's a catastrophe in the making. But the Kyrgyz are sovereign over their country. As I often say, let's wait and see...
Kyrgyzstan's parliament appoints interim leaders after protests topple President Askar Akayev.
