Rebels Seize Control of Uzbekistan Town

Rebels Seize Control of Uzbekistan Town - Yahoo! News:

Freedom on the march? We'll see. We had the Orange Revolution in the Ukraine and the Cedar Revolution in Lebanon (which--somehow--the right-wing Bozos have given Bush credit for). Now's the time to put up or shut up. But this time the revolt is led by Islamic fundamentalists bent on creating an Islamic state. And Uzbekistan's barbarous leader, Islam Karimov, is Bush's buddy.

"We will be building an Islamic state here in accordance with the Quran,' rebel leader Bakhtiyor Rakhimov told The Associated Press in Korasuv, a town of 20,000. 'People are tired of slavery."

Let's see what Bush says next.
