Loved the post and the comments about Cain's cheerful dismissal of Uzbekistan as a small, insignificant state. Sure, Cain's opinion will appeal to many Americans. Who cares about Uzbekistan when you're having economic problems in the US? But Nathan's right- it's pretty stupid foreign policy to think of most countries as insignificant (like Bush did about Pakistan in 1999). And we wonder why so many people in those small and insignificant countries don't have much love for the US. We don't spare any for them.
Still, there is tremendous potential for Cain and his pizza in Central Asia. Bishkek has some decent pizza, but nothing like what Cain has created.
