I figured these folks wouldn’t have long. I went to bed last night thinking they were probably in jail by now. Guess I was right.

As an Uzbek person, it breaks my heart to hear what is happening, however, I must say, every nation deserves its ruler. If they are letting this dictator to screw them like this for the past 15 years, shame on them!
