What does this have to do with roads?

When Turkmenistan's leader starts building roads that spell out his favourite horses' names or whatever, then this sort of stuff is on topic.

Why do you destroy history and change street names? AND the Second Beloved Leader is building the city as it seems mostly by his own ideas and street names. The point is that these roads seem to be signs of power, not needed infrastructure for real. Can some Turkmen explain me do you really like this Turkmenbashy-Ruhnama-stuff and giant spending for buildings where no-one can afford to live?? Like Pjongjang in the 70s or Moscow under Stalin.

I like that names of cities and streets was renamed from Russian to Turkmen. The capital of the United States is named after whom? Why Turkmens do not have the right to call the town or street in honor of the our Dear Leaders? In New York some streets called "First Avenue" or "Fifth Avenue". In Ashgabat, the central square named the St. 2000, the rest of the streets got larger or smaller four-digit numerical names. The names of the central avenues is saved.

Yeah, but someone who is still living and in office and not a democrat and someone after whom one some one "just like to" name a city (Turkmenbashy, "Leader of all Turkmens")
is another thing that guys that lived 350 years ago (Washington, his surname).

Uh, wasn't D.C. named Washington in 1991, by the 3 commissioners in charge, while George Washington was still in office? And also, it was G. Washington who was given full right to choose the location of the new capital district.

The capital of the United States, named in honor of a living president. Turkmens also called secondary (not capital and not populous) Turkmenistan city in honor of the father of Turkmenistan independence. "Turkmenbashi" translated also like "beggining of Turkmens", considering that the city "eastern gate" to Turkmenistan, the name is the symbolic.

I don't understand why it so bothers you. If you look in your countries, you also have the citys named in honor of someone historic person...

The difference is that Turkmenbashi has a long history under different names (Qizil-Su the original turkmen name, red water, Krasnovodsk) while Washington D.C. was a completely new settlement.

Houston is named after Sam Houston who was also in office as the president of Texas in 1837. (when the city was found) so it seems to me that it is common practice in the USA to name the cities after living presidents.
