The Afganistan venture is hanging by a thread and is not yet a success. It is supplied only by lines thru an increasingly unstable Islamic Pakistan and by an airfield in a small, destitute country, Islamic Kyrgyzstan, subject to success at being the highest bidder for airfield privileges. Russsia is apparently outbidding the US currently, as the new, coup- successful govt. says it wants the US out with Russia’s blessings and a desire to “help” Kyrgyzstan. Russia has an airfield there also and is moving in more troops in small numbers for security purposes.

NATO will up the bid via the US or be forced out.

The Chinese are very concerned over the events in Kyrgyzstan because it is in their backyard. As China and Kyrgzystan are neighbouring countries, there is a long history of population movements between the lands that today make up their national territories. There has been a large migration of Chinese people into Kyrgyzstan and Kyrgyzstani university students of all ethnicities also often seek out employment with Chinese traders, using their job as an opportunity to learn the Chinese language.
