The Kyrgyz people have grown weary of American "expressions" of support for democracy and human rights; if Washington truly wants to stabilize its presence in Kyrgyzstan, it can begin by understanding that Central Asia is not an American satrapy to be purchased at bargain basement prices and ignored, but that other countries have legitimate interests there as well, including security, and that an integral part of the security is "quality of life" issues, which previous U.S. arrangements with corrupt regimes have signally failed to address. The operating motto of the new provisional government may well prove to be "Show us the money and help us find what was stolen." It is an adage that Washington, having apparently up to now learned little since 2005, ignores at its peril.
