"After a swell in anti-American feeling in the Central Asian state of Kyrgyzstan, their government submitted Wednesday a decree to parliament for the closure of a key US air base..."

"President Bakiyev made his announcement on Tuesday in Moscow, where he was promised more than $2bn (ВЈ1.4bn) in Russian aid."

"LOL nobody likes Americans!"

And Americans should care because?

"President Bakiyev made his announcement on Tuesday in Moscow, where he was promised more than $2bn (ВЈ1.4bn) in Russian aid."

HAHAHAHA! Putin is lying to him. Russia is broke, the ruble is worth nothing. Let's hope Putin pays that imbecile in rubles and not in dollars or euros. lol

"You kick the Russians enough, they'll kick back!
Who's got the money to bribe now? US is broke!"

You are either ignorant or in denial. Russia is broke a lot worse than the US. The US has said the base is not moving. What is Kyrgyztan gonna do about it? Or Putin for that matter?

I think we should move Gitmo inmates to Kyrgyztan. lol

Not true Nellie and you know it.
The Russians have huge foreign currency reserve - in cash.
The US is running record deficits.

"US. The US has said the base is not moving. What is Kyrgyztan gonna do about it? Or Putin for that matter?"

Yeah start another war, why don't you?;))))
Sooner or later the Russian wick kick the Americans out of that region. Time is on their side.

Yeah, right. After the US pulls out, Putin will say that it is because he kicked them out.

The US does not wish to be the policeman of the world and fight wars all over the globe. The American people have shown this at the voting booth in November by electing the Obamination who promised to end the war.

Yeah, exactly - now go to Kyrgystani forums to tell them that - that should endear you to them if anything.
Then you wonder why the world hates the US/UK.
You can elect purple Husseins if you like, the world will not change their attitude until the US learns some manners.

That's interesting since they've set up "police stations" all over the world....

I think Russia had better change its manner:

"The former Soviet Union has taken advantage of the state of flux in America's political leadership, and of outgoing President George W. Bush's unwillingness to make any further military commitments, to take a more active role both in the affairs of its neighbors and in those of Western nations. From providing weapons and nuclear aid to Iran, to running roughshod over former vassal state and current NATO applicant Georgia this August, to dispatching President Medvedev to meet with Fidel Castro in Cuba and Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, to conducting joint naval exercises with Venezuela in the Caribbean Sea, Russia's leaders are working to regain the lost trust and rebuild the damaged nationalist pride of their subjects by asserting international relevance in the best way they know how: by intimidating neighbors and acting, despite their inability to actually be such, as a global counterbalance to the United States."

"It seems that the closer a country is located to Russia, the worse Moscow's relations are with that nation," Russian radio host Yulia Latynina wrote in the December 3 Moscow Times. "The Kremlin wants to be on good terms with France and Germany, for example, but if any country that was once part of the Soviet empire tries to shed light on its own history, the Kremlin lashes out with angry reproaches that it is deliberately provoking a conflict."


While this will likely always be a hallmark of Russia's foreign policy, it is one which the civilized nations of the world - from Eastern Europe to the United States - have a duty to oppose in all cases where it manifests itself in acts of aggression.

Well, I don't know who you are quoting, but this is the reality:

After the Americans bombing Russia's allies, surrounding her with military bases and nuclear shields, encouraging her neighbors to attack her minorities, giving moral and material support to her separatist Muslim minorities, the US has finally ran out of breath, under staggering load of debt and internal mismanagement, and is now attempting to appeal to some "civilized" relations.

Countries like Kyrgystan, former US's partners in their so-called War On Terror, are reading the writing on the wall and wisely jumping ship.
Many more to come.
Not the first country to regret anti Russian aggression that US.....

I believe the Communists are slowly winning. Just look at socialist USA. Yes, we are no longer a true democracy, but a socialist government with the trappings of democracy (elections). And don't even get me started on Europe.

Was watching a 'Passport to Europe' rerun the other day. In Amsterdam, the clerk behind the counter selling pot at the pot/coffee house was wearing a shirt with a red hammer and sickle on the front. It's akin to the disgusting Che shirts we see way too much of here.

I haven't given up by any means; but too damn many uneducated, yet college degreed sheeple are going to have a helluva time making a decent living if they don' t wake up.

Unlike easily transported oil, natural gas is not internationally traded commodity. Price for natural gas is set by local long-term agreement between supplier and consumer. Russian/Ukrainian price wars over NG supply is not your American warmongering freaks f-ing business.

BTW, Ukraine is major supplier of weaponry to “democratic” and “peaceful” Pakistan.

Kolega

Don't get me started on the advertisers who advertise on Novinite. Free Newt is better than cheap Ukrainian women. lol

I will concede one point - the majority of Americans - those who think that we can spend our way or borrow our way out of this crisis are ignorant idiots. There is only one thing we can do - work our way out of it.
