    Britain trained Uzbek troops weeks before massacre

    This is an absolute disgrace. Blair & Co should hang their heads in shame, we should have no part in the training of troops under the control of such a brutal regime. From today's Guardian:

    The training was part of a larger programme funded by Britain despite concerns expressed by the Foreign Office at the time over the Uzbekistan government's human rights record. A group of Uzbek military cadets were given a "coaching course" in marksmanship by British soldiers in February and March this year.
    Ask your MP to raise this issue in parliament if you are also concerned about this. There is a link on the sidebar here to contact your MP. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
