I Just Pray Our Uzbekistan Military Base Hasn't Been Damaged

More news from Uzbekistan:

"It was a massacre," said a 31-year-old cobbler who witnessed the killing outside School No. 15 from a side-street. "This sickening smell of blood, smashed brains, guts, and blood, blood, everywhere. I could not put my feet on a dry spot.

"I saw soldiers killing several wounded with single shots to the head after asking 'are there any wounded around'," he said...

He said he saw about 500 corpses in comments that could not be verified but were corroborated by others.

Sure, this looks bad. But there's NO WAY we could have seen this coming.

I personally believe that the examples of ex-Soviet states such as Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Georgia are proof positive that Chechnya must be given its independence.

That's obvious, isn't it?

Good point, Alexis S. Since if Chechnya got its independence there might be mass slaughter and other human rights violations on a tremendous scale. Oh, wait....

What are you saying, Donald? I'm FOR independence. That way America can allow mass slaughter and other human rights violations on a tremendous scare to continue for twenty years before invading and making Chechnya an oppressed colony.
