Here is another one of those moments which one must recognize, if only because of the fact that it seems like the universe is trying to communicate something to you which you can't understand.
While googling "Guam" and "blog" I came across this interesting entry. I'm well aware of the US military presence in Guam (and wouldn't mind them quitting GUUAM), but Uzbekistan? Ai na triniste, este na dinigu, oh how I hardly knew thee....
Uzbekistan Officially Quits GUUAM
Uzbekistan officially announced on May 5 that it quits the GUUAM, a grouping of Georgia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan and Moldova, the Georgian Foreign Ministry reported.
The Uzbekistani authorities sent an official notification about the decision to the Moldovan President Vladimir Voronin, who currently chairs the organization.
In keeping with comments and predictions made in my previous post it seems logical that given GUAM’s increasingly pro-west direction and recent announcement to help foster revolution in Belarus that Uzbekistan would become uncomfortable enough to quit. Its disconnectedness will now increase which will provide short term gains but ultimately make Uzbekistan more fragile.
