Uzbek town still burying its dead

Uzbekistan is an ally to the United States ever since they allowed the U.S. to put an army base in their country. Does this give their government the right to shoot innocent people protesting the incarceration of other innocent people? Does the U.S. turn a blind eye to certain countries atrocities because they cooperate with the U.S.?


"Eyewitnesses have told the IWPR media development charity that troops were still shooting injured people dead three and a half hours after the gunfire began."

"TASHKENT, Uzbekistan -- An Uzbek opposition leader says her party has compiled a list of 745 people allegedly killed by government troops in Uzbekistan."
