Kyrgyzstan


So, I received a record number of emails about Kyrgyzstan over the weekend. Usually, I receive about 3 or 4 a day. I received over 100 since Friday night.

Looking at news reports in respected media (New York Times, Washington Post, etc) ethnic conflict is escalating. Mostly, gangs have been targeting Uzbeks in Southern Kyrgyzstan. It is reported that dozens, possibly as many as 100, have died.

And what's more upsetting is that the reports may not be accurate, and that the situation might actually be worse. Looking at the latest email from a yahoo group called "HR-Uzbekistan", some claim thousands have died. Homes, Mosques, and hospitals have been burned to the ground.

To put it simply it's a human rights nightmare. I for one agree with Human Rights Watch and think it's time for international action and UN involvement. Otherwise, it seems the situation will only escalate.

Human rights have been violated by each and every country including US. This wont stop until the weapons industry wont stop.

The third cause for writing an Ebook is to make passive income online for a long time to appear. Most people come into my plan with this in mind. By locating a market of hungry potential customers that are inclined to spend for details they want to know about procustomwriting.com you can do very well on the world wide web. Just bear in mind to compose your Ebook in a way that provides people what they want, not what you think they need.
