US general pledges military aid for oil-rich Azerbaijan
BAKU (AFP) Nov 21, 2003
A senior US general visited the former Soviet republic of Azerbaijan Friday to discuss military cooperation in the Caspian Sea, an area of massive oil and gas reserves being eyed by the West.
General Charles "Chuck" Wald, Deputy Commander of the US European Command, visited military installations and had talks with Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev.

The Azeri state news agency quoted the general as saying that Washington was offering unspecified military aid which "is important from the point of view of regional security, including in the Caspian. The Pentagon attaches great importance to this."

The Caspian Sea is thought to hold the world's third-largest oil reserves. Washington is keen to exploit the oil as an alternative to the Middle East, and is backing energy projects in the region.

However, there are unresolved security problems associated with the inland sea. Iran is staking claims to oil fields which Azerbaijan insists lie inside its sector of the sea.

The Pentagon has already committed to provide four million dollars of military aid to help improve Azerbaijan's ability to guard its maritime borders.

If Russia has any importance to Armenia. Then life is good for you.

WHAT???

Anyway, the Azerbaijani and Gergian governments do kiss America's ass, but about 90% of their populations are strongly anti-American and that undermines the governments.

You get a scientific poll to back that up or are you just spouting your normal crap.

Well, do you have a scientific poll to prove me wrong?
You think you know Azeris or Georgians?
If 56% of all Europeans think that America is a major threat to world peace, then imagine what Azeris would think.
So stop spewing your crap.

That is the most illogical thing I've ever heard. I don't have to disprove a point that has no evidence backing it up. You have to prove it. If you can't, then shut the fuck up.

The survey of 7,515 people in the 15 EU countries was carried out between 8 and 16 October.

Thanks, but I already knew they Europe is filed with socialist freaks. We're not talking about Europe though. So, basically you decided to post this because it proves nothing.

lmao kazakh.

This is an American forum man.

These guys are American.

They believe what they are doing is liberating the world from evil communists, brutal dictators, and stopping fanatics.

LMAO! They dont know that anywhere they go (besides maybe japan and canada) AMERICANs are disliked, and would rather be treated as second class barbarians.

I've been to the Netherlands, I was treated quite well there.

I hung out with Germans, French, Irish, English, Italians, none of them had any problems with Americans.

Some Moroccan guy stole my bag though, had to chase him down to get it back.

America may be a bitch to the poor in their country, and the rest of the world, but its still a damn good country. Easy to get ahead and make money. If i could find another place, id move there, im thinking about moving back to my home NYC. And then, maybe going back to armenia, help them rebuild.

You only were treated good because you were a tourist. The netherlands are a very, and i mean VERY liberal country. SEX and DRUGS its what is all about in the netherlands.

However, in france, it is very different.

Plus, it is called manners, to treat a stranger from another land with respect, unlike here where my dad has to get searched because he looks like an arab. lol fuck man, he is armenian, american citizen, hard worker, he aint crazy like that.

Piggywiggy,

Maybe you didn't read, or maybe you didn't comprehend.

I said I have hung out with Germans, French, English, Irish, and Italians, and none of them had any problems with Americans.

I also stayed at the homes of four Dutch families, one in Rotterdam, one in Amsterdam, one in Vledderveen, and one near Arnhem. If they thought so lowly of us they wouldn't have taken us into their homes, fed us, and provided us with beds.

you see?

you have been raised with the mind that no1 cares for anyone.

but in other places, an enemy is like a brother when he is in your home.

Ironduke

No, I haven't been brought up with the mind that nobody cares for anyone.

Are you actually implying that these Dutch people I stayed with considered Americans their enemies?

Nope.

I think that they dont care. Mostly everyone these days is anti usa. those who arent are just desperate for money.

Did you ever consider that because America doesn't give hand outs to the poor and protects its interest aboard that that is why it's such a good country? If you want to live in a country that has free health care, free drugs, and free childcare, and concedes its sovereignty to the UN then move to Europe.

Ever hear the story of the pot calling the kettle black?

It's almost funny to hear a Russian say American's are a bunch of war mongers who'd rather go to war than spend money trying to fix our own country.

Another blanket term.

All but one of them were banned for not playing well with us. And the one keeps getting breaks and hasn't joined them (yet).

So now your an American? What happened to "Happy Thanksgiving Americans! I live in Californiastan, but I'm not a Yankee"?
