What to do with a problem like Uzbekistan

by Joshua Foust on 2/6/2012

The stars aligned and two interviews I gave over the last week for different-language’d public media have been published.

The first is with Dutch Public Radio, and it’s about the U.S. decision to lift restrictions on providing certain kinds of military equipment to the Uzbek regime. (See more here.)

The second is with VOA Uzbek, where I talk about the inherent tensions between human rights advocacy and broader strategic U.S. goals in the region. (See more here.)

The Dutch text can be machine-translated in Chrome (or whatever you use), but the Uzbek one is a bit harder to work with. Anyway, there’s that.
