Default Downfall of Kyrgyz government

Another downfall of a centralist authoritarian government...

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7257340/

BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan - President Askar Akayev’s government collapsed Thursday after opposition protesters took over the presidential compound and government offices, throwing computers and air conditioners out of windows in a frenzy of anger over corruption and a disputed election.

I also saw that on this evenings broadcast, its really frantic over their. The footage of the police beating the protester, reminds me of a documentry on Pinochet we just watched in Political Studies.

Akayev was a very corrupt leader like Kuchma in Ukraine. One problem: There isn't a potent opposition figure in this case. At least one that has not risen up to the challenge. Just a bunch of obscure, little known leaders.

The potent opposition figure was the body of thousands of disenfranchised citizens who had had it up to the eyeballs with the corruption.
