Monument Of S Zorig
Ulaanbaatar

Sanjaasuregiin Zorig was the leader of a successful democratic movement in Mongolia in 1990. On October 2, 1998, at the age of thirty-six, he was stabbed and axed to death in his apartment in Ulan Bator. At the time of his death, the Mongolian government was in a deadlock.

For the past four months, the president and Parliament had been attempting to appoint a new prime minister. It had been over three months since the last prime minister, Tsakhiagiin Elbegdor, had been forced to resign. Four potential candidates had already been advanced since Elbegdorj's July resignation, but none had garnered support from both the Parliament and the president.

The Parliament was controlled by the Democratic Union Coalition (DUC). The president belonged to the Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party (MPRP), a group of (former) communists.

It seemed that Zorig, despite his efforts to overthrow communism in 1990, was well-like by members of both parties. Word surfaced at the beginning of October that Zorig was going to be the next nominee for the prime minister opening. Moreover, despite his DUC affiliation, he had apparently secure the president's approval. These rumors surfaced on October 2. Later that night, Zorig was murdered. Neither parties will address whether the crime was politically motivated. Nobody has been arrested in the stabbing.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
