Presidential palace has been overrun. Is there worse to come for this country?

Who knows? It could follow the path of Georgia, the Ukraine, or Lebanon...

The way this so-called opposition is acting, there could very well be worse to come for Kyrgyzstan. They will be the ones with the blood on their hands, not Akayev.

While Kyrgysztan is a Muslim country, so far there doesn't appear to be much support for Islamic fundamentalism, so that's good news.

Quoting PROSA (Reply 6):
While Kyrgysztan is a Muslim country, so far there doesn't appear to be much support for Islamic fundamentalism, so that's good news.

If you look at the criminals who are 'leading' these events in Kyrgyzstan, there are two major types -- those who are involved in criminal activity (especially drug trafficking) and those who are Islamic fundies. Both types have their strongholds in Osh and Jalalabad in southern Kyrgyzstan, which is where all this brouhaha started.

Criminal groups would explain why the crowds infesting Bishkek at the moment are armed with clubs, molotov cocktails and stolen police riot gear.
