Moral foreign policy?

The Times reports that the Uzbek interior minister, who is accused of directing the massacre of potesters in Andijon in May, is currently in Germany for cancer treatment. Colonel General Almatov is one of twelve Uzbeks affected by an EU travel ban announced Monday. EU officials explained that "medical emergencies" were exempt from the travel ban. There goes your leverage.

The sina kurva who runs Uzbekistan has BOILED PEOPLE ALIVE in front of their relatives. I can't get mdiecal treatment for stuff when I need it, and he gets to go get cancer treatment. I get jerked around on my Pell Grant, and he gets to go get taken care of. pisses me the hell off.
