Kyrgyzstan Nowhere On World Map. U.S./Russia Victims Of Madoff?

Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan's parliament will delay a vote on expelling U.S. troops from an important base there until it receives $450 million in aid and loans promised by Russia, a lawmaker said Monday.

"We're open to the highest bidder", stated Communist leader John Doe Itsaverbimispronounce.

The base is a key staging platform for U.S. and coalition operations in Afghanistan.

"We have decided to wait until the Russians send the money," Communist Party deputy Absamat Masaliyev, a member of the parliament's coordinating body, told The Associated Press.

A delay in the vote to shut the Manas air base could give Washington extra time to confirm their finding that there is no such country as Kyrgyzstan and that it's just another scheme from Bernie Madoff.
