My First Adventure

This story, though it is aspires to be a humorous parody of Casino Royale, is an all too serious fictionalization of the Andijan massacre, which occurred in eastern Uzbekistan in 2005, aided indirectly but materially by the United States. It is the first story in a trilogy about how James Schuyler Hamilton Shively the Fourth, a neo-conservative Republican patrician, has his conservative values undermined by his experiences working for Dick Cheney, Mitch McConnell and as a political shill (see The Great Objectivist Strike and My Last Adventure).

This story is sarcastically dedicated to Herman Cain (may he rest in peace), who during his bid for bid for leadership of the Republican Party in 2016 talked about “Uzbeki-beki stan”, as if mockery of this benighted country somehow justified supporting a dictatorship in which members of the political opposition were horrifically tortured, and even boiled alive in oil. 1

Please note that though the narrator of this story is breezy and flippant, the goal of this story is certainly not to minimize the horrors of the Uzbeki dictatorship, but rather to expose how our flippant, fraternity humor approach to international relations masks sinister practices.
