Kyrgyzstan Kicks out US Marines Corps Print E-mail

The few, the proud, the too cowardly to confront the Kyrgyzstan government, the U.S. Marine Corps are fleeing a U.S. military base operating in the small nation of Kyrgyzstan.

According to the Moscow Times, "All soldiers will vacate the U.S. Manas Transit Center near the Kyrgyz capital Bishkek within a week, the U.S. Ambassador to the Central Asian country said Tuesday. Following a ceremony at which symbolic keys to the airfield were handed over, Ambassador Pamela Spratlen said cooperation between the two countries would continue, Interfax reported."

The U.S. Marines appear to be ducking and running as they head towards Western Ukraine and Poland.

As reported by the Moscow Times, "Kyrgyzstan, a member of the Moscow-led Collective Security Treaty Organization, declined to extend the U.S.' lease of the base last year. Russia has opposed the U.S.' military presence in the region, and after it promised Kyrgyzstan $1 billion in military aid and the financing of hydropower infrastructure projects, President Almazbek Atambayev vowed to move the U.S.' Manas facility."

Yet another shining example of President Barry Obama's Reset on Russia.
