    Never get involved in a land war in Asia.

    The US will never have much influence in the landlocked countries of central Asia, because we will never be doing much trade with them, so we shouldn’t even try. Since we will be leaving Afghanistan soon anyway, we will no longer have a need to air freight supplies through Kyrgyzstan, so why renew a rental agreement with Kyrgyzstan passed the 2014 expiration date? When Kyrgyzstan realizes that the rental money is going to stop, they might even lower the rent in an attempt to keep at least some of the income flowing into their coffers. You have to be willing to walk away in a negotiation, or you are in a very weak negotiating position.
