Kyrgyzstan: Which Color?
Another colored revolution devoured itself on Wednesday as violent protests engulfed the Kyrgyz capital of Bishkek. By nightfall, 40 people were dead with hundreds injured. The opposition had taken the government, and Kurmanbek Bakiyev, the man the Tulip Revolution had put into power, had fled.
If there is a color for this “revolution” it will be red. Red for the anger. Red for the blood. Red for the fire.
The question is why, and why now?
Alas, the winner is Red.
