QuOte Of tHE Day

"There are four enemies of human rights: oil, gas, the war on terror and geopolitical considerations."
Yevgeny Zhovtis

This bit is nice and fine. Zhovtis, however, is qutoed by the NY Times continuing “And we have all four.” He's from Kazakhstan International Bureau for Human Rights and Rule of Law, an organization that has received financing from the American Embassy and the National Endowment for Democracy. The news today talks about how corrupt the Kazakh Government is, how important the country is strategically, and the oil and gas reserves. Now, I am not a conspiracy fan at all, but I wouldn't be suprised in case of a soft change in government of Kazakhstan (for the emancipation of the Kazakh people and to support their democratic rights of course).
