Kazakhstan, a human rights disaster, hosts Iran Talks

Posted By Steve Horn On February 26, 2013 @ 9:15 am In News | Comments Disabled

Allen Ruff and I have written extensively about Kazakhstan and about the typical hypocrisy at-play in the kleptocratic country. We published an article in the aftermath of the Zhanaozen Massacre about the U.S. imperial Great Game being played in Kazakhstan [1] and Central Asia at-large, then followed that up with an article about the nuclear double-standards, juxtaposing how the U.S. treats Iran vs. how it treats Kazakhstan [2]. Kazakhstan, as we pointed out, provides 30-percent+ of the world’s supply of uranium fuel stock.

Next came our [3] three-part [4] series [5] on the World Bank’s “knowledge bank” agenda in Kazakhstan, bringing Nazarbayev University, named after its “President-for-Life [6],” to Astana.

Today, Allen was on¬†The Real News Network¬†to chat about the nuclear summit dog-and-pony show and why it’s being hosted in Kazakhstan. Check it out below.
