Uzbek has a new tyrant

He's called the "tyrant of Tashkent" in a Monday editorial by The London Telegraph.

One of the rebel leaders in his country says that he makes Saddam Hussein look like "a choir boy." And Sunday, British Foreign Minister Jack Straw said there had been a "clear abuse of human rights" in rioting in his country where the CBC reports police and troops have been accused by aid groups of killing as many as 700 people, including women and children.

And he's our ally.
