Kyrgyzstan Extends Use Of Airbase

Donald Rumsfeld has secured ongoing use of an airbase in Kyrgyzstan for "as long as the situation in Afghanistan requires," assured Major General Ismail Isakov.

PoliBlog makes a great point about this - "it is remarkable that the US has even temporary military bases in a place that once was part of the Soviet Union."

Who'da thunk we'd ever see this in our lifetimes?
