Uzbekistan doesn't take criticism well

after finally speaking out against the repressive regime in uzbekistan and the mass shootings of protestors, the u.s. is getting its hand slapped...
Uzbek President Islam Karimov recently curtailed U.S. military operations at the [Karshi-Khanabad air base -- dubbed K2 and located in southeastern Uzbekistan] after U.S. criticism of his government's shooting of hundreds of protesters in Andijan last month. The restrictions prohibit nighttime operations and also limit flights by C-17 and other heavy cargo aircraft.

THAT'LL teach us to speak up against brutal dictators...!
