US military interest in Azerbaijan usually begins and ends with it being on the border with Iran, but today NATO’s interest in the tiny republic centers on its being along a border with Russia.
You can’t have a border with Russia these days, or in Armenia and Moldova’s case be just kind of close to Russia, without NATO looking to throw military assets at you these days to “counter” an imagined Russian threat.
Moldova, which at least sort of borders Ukraine (tiny autonomous Transnistria notwithstanding), is getting a NATO “liaison office,” according to the reports, while Armenia is getting full-fledged military exercises, and Azerbaijan is getting a defense rehaul aimed at protecting its offshore oil and gas fields in the Caspian Sea.
While NATO has imagined a looming problem in Moldova over the status of Transnistria, Russia has extremely cozy relations with both Azerbaijan and Armenia, and the only hint of any military tension for either Armenia or Azerbaijan in the region are with one another, not with Russia.
Rather, NATO seems to be looking to use the fiction of an “expansionist” Russia to engage in some military expansion of its own, insinuating itself ever-deeper into Asia for no apparent reason beyond just sticking it to Russia.

We said it and we saying it again, the world facing the biggest threat to humanity the way that EU governing body, NATO and USG playing their idiotic war games, the third world war is on the corner where the US corporation or for that matter EU corporations give a damn about.
NATO has announced that it is suspending all military and civilian cooperation with Russia over the Ukrainian crisis, the bloc said in a joint statement.
"We have decided to suspend all practical civilian and military cooperation between NATO and Russia. Our political dialogue in the NATO-Russia Council can continue, as necessary, at the Ambassadorial level and above, to allow us to exchange views, first and foremost on this crisis," the statement reads. The alliance plans to review its relations with Russia at a meeting in June"
USG and NATO are in cooperation from 1990s to establish their militarism regimes at the door step to Russia, the idea later carried out by Bill Clinton and Madeline Albright when they decided to bomb-divide Yugoslavia, then Tony Blair and rest of European from Swedish government, social democrats, aristocrats, Neo, old and ok'd fascism joined in in occupation of Afghanistan, the plan is a on going social political process and it will not stop there. Hitler sow Russia as the greatest obstacle for the German fascism march toward rest of the world, especially Central Asia where the natural resources are, the Neo liberalism are on the same path in cooperation. Russia is against the Syrian war and were against Libya regime change, Russia is against USG and NATO countries wanting to destroy the Iranian nation, Russia is for a united nation not a bought, bribed united nation, the growth of Russian economy is also a obsticke for unfair and unjust western economic-bankers and other form of corrupted-corruptions economy taking place in US and in EU from Sweden to Turkey.
Those who started the Syrian war are losing, the Afghanistan war they have lost, the Libyan war they have lost, the only thing they can do and have left is to use the social garbagfes figurines as Neo, old and ok'd fascism in Ukraine and left over terrorists, the Islamic fascists from all over Europe, Saudi Arabia and UAE to Chechnya creating the scenario in more wars, in the process however, they intimate Russia and others, meanwhile they are finalizing their plan for a bigger war, if is with Russia so be it, if is with Iran so be it, if is with rest of the world so be it, simply they are in business of making wars since 1990s. This plan occupying Eastern Europe after collapse of USSR is nothing new, it's been on the desk of every president since Bill Clinton and all of them have created a new path achieving their dreams circling Russia with their militarism, "what is so good about this military might if we can not use it" are the words by Madeline Albright and whom ever the president been following the saying, the only thing, is different is that European governing body in the past, to some point they were against it, now all kind of falsified social or otherwise democracy are for such plan and oppenly supporting Saudis barbarians inhuman actions in Syria and applauding their militarism plan for a bigger disasters for humanity.
This constant meddling into the perimeters of Russia and China can only lead to the very logical conclusion that Russia and China must preemptively take out the US with a nuclear first strike.
map… NATO and necon aggression since 9/11, since putin reposeesed Russian assets from Russian neocons
It's not a matter of sticking it to Russia but sticking it to Putin. He has turned into a political clown, part Kadaffi, part Milosevic and as such is a peramnent source of danger. The strategy is to discredit him among his own elderly supporters by showing that not only will there be no new "Soviet Union" but that Russia's empire in the Caucasus and Siberia is going to go the way of all the former European empires and is (finally!) going to be decolonised. US forces in Azerbaijan thus imply support for the independence movements in Chechnya, Ingushetia and Dagestan, which is the part of the Russian empire that borders on Azerbaijan. The price Putin pays for playing Milosevic is to be treated like Milosevic!
what chickens are gonna come home to roost on the neocons, who seem to think they're entitled to run the world? …"benevolent global hegemony" and "full spectrum dominace"… have you heard of them?
the reason the neocons are so upset with putin is because they, the neoccons, thought they had russian oil and gas sewed up… and how you gonna achieve "benevolent global hegemony" if you dont control russian energy?
and never mind that the neocons' "benevolence" is suspect after watching them tear country after country limb from limb
can you blame the russians for resisting the neocon empire? ..after watching their "benevolence" in action?
You forgot to call him 'Hitler', c'mon already!
Is it you McCain?
And Western leaders, you see these as paragons of virtue, truth and honesty? i.e. NOT clowns? Hahahaha.
I don't see how Putin not bending over and spreading his cheeks for NATO encirclement and Empire's diktats makes him a clone of Qaddhafi or Milosevic and a permanent source of danger. Maybe because he has a backbone and his not selling out his country like all the Western EU poodles? AND they can't muscle Russia the way they did with Serbia, Libya, Iraq?
Everyday you come here and cry the Western propaganda song of the evil Putin and evil Russians. Did some Russian steal your bike or your girlfriend? Why does Russia standing up to Western bullying and the ever-present 20 year push to surround Russia bother you so much?
You sound like a Western propaganda wench and should probably be treated as such, with your short-sighted comparisons and butthurt whining, crying and carrying on.
Apparently still a lot of uninformed simpletons out there who are easily scared and angered by half-truths and plain old BS. Can you go and blow the Empire elsewhere?
As for Chechnya, Ingushetia and Dagestan? Who cares about these tiny nuisances? Russia should let them go if they want to leave.
STOP WATCHING FOX NEWS IT IS MAKING YOU SPOUT ONE IDIOTIC PIECE OF NONSENSE AFTER ANOTHER.
This is money that could be spent to heal, educate and house Americans. The public is against it. Why is Congress so helpless in standing up to the military industrial complex?
