A brief little documentary about Turkmenistan, alias "The North Korea of Central Asia". At least until 2006, when the dictator Saparmurat Niyazov suddenly died. The documentary was made the year before.
Not sure why some regimes still pull stunts like this? Swedish propaganda is more subtle and much more effective - I mean, we are completely brain-washed around here, while everyone knew that Türkmenbashi was a totalitarian wacko.
I´m sure the present president of Turkmenistan is an altogether nicer guy, and wants to share his oil and gas with Amerika and Schweden, yes?
PS. Apparently, Türkmenbashi´s holy scripture, the Ruhnama, is available for free in an English translation. Sounds like something I should review...in 10 years. LOL!
