This whole trend of peaceful revolutions (and a failed attempt) in Kirgistan, Uzbekistan, WeRanOutofPrefixesistan, etc makes my head hurt. I'm starting to hope they all settle back into being complacent again so I just don't have to care anymore.
ETA: To the Russian Studies commenter, is OK, I don't think you're an asshat, and I should have remembered that these republics aren't technically new. The USSR was around for, what, over eighty years? It's easy to not know, or to forget, what came before.
