Revolution of dreams. For the young are dying on the barricades

May 18 2005

In Uzbekistan, the body count continues. Their numbers vary depending on the political affiliation of those who believes the information blockade has opened opportunities for speculation, but the corpses, apparently, a lot. And this is the main political result of the Uzbek opposition.

Fotreportazh "The events in Uzbekistan through the eyes of Western media"

Another important result is that victims of government troops clashes with Islamists in frightening proportions were young. This can be explained by the fact that youth is characteristic audacity, you can also say that in the Ferghana Valley, the highest rate of population growth in the post-Soviet space, ie young people out there just a lot physically.

This is true, how true that live there unbearable, and young and old: in the cities of Uzbekistan income levels almost 3 times lower than the minimum consumer basket, in the countryside - to 8-fold. Salaries peasants do not exceed 5-10 dollars per month, work on cotton plantations was and remains a slave, and polity of all the Central Asian states merely khan.

And that all his life, until old age, such hate? Everything on the maidan! That's why only the first blows people's anger is experienced the city jail, freed the prisoners which is now being caught throughout the region ? Even sensitive to such things the West does not hurry to call the Andijan pokey local Bastille and its inhabitants yesterday's prisoners of conscience. The episode with the prison - the key to an adequate understanding of the events in Uzbekistan and far beyond it: in Kyrgyzstan, in Georgia and Ukraine - who's next?

No national or political motives played virtually no role in the "velvet revolutions" that have occurred in recent years in Yugoslavia, Georgia, Ukraine, in Kyrgyzstan. "Orange" revolution well-established pattern this spring miraculously escaped, Moldovan President Vladimir Voronin. He was forgiven major and minor sins for tough anti-Russian stance (even then, he was a Communist).

Well, what with the countries of the victorious revolution? There, many seem to believe that from now on in their grief, to Maidan tolknuvshey life, starting bright page. Let's see how sing a couple of years, when sure: nothing will change.

By the President Akaev , for example, the Kirghiz were big claims: nasazhal everywhere their relatives and clan members, while the common people living hopeless. Wow! - Asian and relatives nasazhal ", and that in Asia is different? As a result, people's revolution, Kyrgyzstan has other relatives in their former positions.

In all the "velvet revolutions" to ax people call those who have once been at the trough, and then someone more powerful, cunning and cynical double up. An instrument of revenge will be square, after a victory which in the life maydanschikov nothing changes either for the better or for worse on one condition - if a bloodless coup.

In Uzbekistan, no blood could not have done. And the role of free meat for the guns, impeccably played by the Uzbek youth, is deeply symbolic.
