It says in the article:
"Russia's attack on Georgia has become an unexpected
source of support for big U.S. weapons programs..."
I don't think it was unexpected at all. Think about it. Less than two weeks after the highest point of conflict started Condi Rice is signing an
arms deal with Poland.
Like it's been said, Georgia knew exactly what it was doing. Our troops have been training them. Israel has been supplying them. Georgia made the
first move (relative to the hand to hand combat that's going on) and Georgia, the US, and Israel ALL knew that Russia would NOT just sit back and let
it happen. Russia's response was completely expected. This would have never happened if there was not something to gain from it. Obviously
there's the pipeline but now we also see the kicker to it all...the weapons programs.
I suggest some read about PNAC. It clearly states that the goal of PNAC, a group mainly made up of neocons and has had a hand in writing legislature
in this country, is to largely expand America's military industrial complex and control as much oil as it possibly can.
This entire conflict is just one part of a larger agenda and step closer to accomplishing their goals. That is why even if Russia were to just pull
out completely and end all attacks this would not really be over. This is also why officials in the US keep making these incredibly provoking
comments and automatically dismissing Russia demands as "bizarre" and try to mock them as reminding them this isn't the 80's anymore. Condi's
words in this article say it all.
"When you threaten Poland, you perhaps forget that it is not 1988," Rice said. "It's 2008 and the United States has a ... firm treaty
guarantee to defend Poland's territory as if it was the territory of the United States. So it's probably not wise to throw these threats
But here we are threatening the crap out of Iran demanding they don't do what we and many other countries do all the time. It seems like every time
someone in our admin. open their mouths regarding this conflict their words are incredibly hypocritical. And some fail to see it, but most of the
Thank you for this post because it makes thinks a heck of a lot clearer as to what our REAL interest is in all of this.
