After all the posts I wrote back in the day bitching about U.S.-Uzbekistan relations, you would think that I might have something constructive or interesting or apologetic or self-congratulatory or something – anything! – to say about what’s going on in Uzbekistan now. After all, the Bush administration went and did essentially what I wanted it to do (after the crackdown), so you might expect me to say whether, in retrospect, the approach I advocated seems vindicated or crap or whether the jury is still out.
Eh. I’ll get around to it someday.
