Kyrgyzstan – The “Tulip Revolution” replayed

It looks like Washington is replaying its 2005 “Tulip Revolution” against its own puppet, Kyrgyzstan’s president Kurmanbek Bakiyev by using the country’s Opposition leaders as it used Kurmanbek and other Opposition leaders against previous president Askar Akayev in 2005. It is reported that as the result of large-scale protests in Bishhek on Wednesday, president Kurmanbek has fled from the city and Opposition leader Omurbek Tekebaev, the former Speaker of Parliament has demanded that president Kurmanbek and the rest of his government resign. Kurmanbek Bakiyev had angered his masters in Washington when he switched his alliance to Moscow for a US$2.15 billion aid package and demanded the closer of US military base at Manas in 2010. The US military base at Manas is a key transit point for US occupation troops and supplies bound for Afghanistan. Last month alone, 50,000 US and coalition troops passed through Manas enroute to Afghanistan, according to Pentagon source. In March it was reported that Pentagon plans to build a US$5.5 million training facility for Krygyz Special Forces in the southern province of Batken – the home to the so-called “Islamist terrorists”, who are against the occupation of their country by both Russia and the US.

Israeli Hasbara organ, The Wall Street Journal, has reported today that an interim government has been established under the leadership of Roza Otunbayeva with Vice-premier Omurbek Tekebayev, Vice-premier Temir Sariyev and defence minister Ismail Isakov. The interim government has promised to keep the US military base at Manas operating indefinitely.

The Zionist puppet, Ban Ki-moon was not happy with the ousted president either. Ban had visited the country last Saturday and criticized Kurmanbek Bakiyev’s government for human-righst violation (he would dare to say so in case of the US, Britain, France and Israel). Ban is despatching his special envoy, Jan Kubis, Slovakia’s former foreign minister, to Kyrgyzstan on Friday in order to legitimize the new pro-West, anti-Muslim government.

Askar Akayey was hailed by the West as one of the few democratic leaders after the dismemberment of USSR in 1991 as result of Red Army’s defeat at the hands of Afghan Mujahideen. He joined the ranks of a long list of former US assets, such as, Saddam Husein (Iraq), Manuel Noreiga (Panama), Slobadan Milosevic, Eduard Shevardnadze (Georgia), Lech Walensa (Poland), Pervez Musharaf (Pakistan), Yasser Arafat (PLO) and Leonid Kuchma (Ukraine). In the aftermath of 2005 “Tulip Revolution”, the Wall Street Journal had reported that Kyrgyz Opposition was largely funded by pro-West NGOs. Two of the major NGOs working with the Opposition, the Coalition for Democracy and Civill Society (CDCS) and the Civil Society Against Corruption (CSAC), receive bulk of their funding from US government and anti-Islamist organizations.

All the Communist-turned- Nationalist governments in the former five USSR republics with Muslim majority – have close relations with the Zionist entity and the dictators are supported by the powerful Israel Lobby in the US. This is the reasons none of the leaders had criticized Tel Aviv for its genocide of Muslims in Gazzah in December-January 2009. These dictorial governments have no other alternative but to maintain friendly relations with the West in order to suppress public hatred toward Zionist-created “War on Islam” and their national anti-Islam leadership. Mars Sariev, an independent political oberser, summed-up the situation in Kyrgyzstan: “The more strongly the situation in Palestine aggravates, the more Islam is politicized. There are some politicians who use Islam for their purposes. The position of moderate Muslims has suffered and radical Islam grows. And this factor cannot be stopped with weapons. It’s wrong.”

Kyrgyzstan is home to nearly 6 million people (80% Muslims, 20% Christians). The natural resources include natural gas, oil, gold, coal, lead and uranium. The region was part of Muslim Uzbek Khanate till 1876, when it was annexed by Russia.
