Rep. Coffman Discusses Iraq And Afghanistan On CNN



We have to have an honest conversation about Iraq and Afghanistan. Rep. Coffman has actually served in uniform and knows what he is talking about unlike most of the politicians on the hill who have a silver spoon in their mouth and no experience in uniform. We certainly know that there is no experience in the oval office. I don't think we should be nation building and we need to actually fight this like it is a war. I would rather their side die than our soldiers' and Marines' lives be wasted in some unrealistic attempt to avoid civilian casualties.

Obama Bans Press From Accurately Covering The Gulf Oil Spill

In a shocking move reminiscent of the Lincoln administration Obama has ordered the press to stay back 65 feet from the ships, oil booms, and beaches. This effectively ends detailed coverage of the disaster. We will no longer have access to the photos and reporting that bring the story alive for so many of us.

Not only is this unconstitutional it is being done strictly for political reasons. Obama's poll numbers are down so now the Coast Guard has to make up safety reasons to limit press access. Does this White House ego know no bounds? The whole debacle in the Gulf is due to the feds deliberately stopping the states from protecting their own shores. Now you can debate if it is simply due to their inexperience or as I believe because they deliberately are allowing the damage to be done to a region that did not vote for them and never will.

I love how the Democrats are high and might about freedom of the press. Where are they now? It is also of note that all the animals being devastated by the spill no longer seem to matter to many of the Democrats who use the animals as convenient excuses to deny us the development of our own resources. Their hypocrisy truly knows no bounds.

I cannot believe how out of control our federal government is or that the American people are sitting back and putting up with it. November will be here soon. There needs to be a political price. If there is a D at the end of their name you need to vote against them. Our Gulf states are all suffering and most of the damage should have and could have been avoided had the feds just got out of the way.

The Caucasus Cauldron

This report is republished with permission of STRATFOR.

By George Friedman

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited some interesting spots over the July 4 weekend. Her itinerary included Poland and Ukraine, both intriguing choices in light of the recent Obama-Medvedev talks in Washington. But she also traveled to a region that has not been on the American radar screen much in the last two years — namely, the Caucasus — visiting Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia.

The stop in Poland coincided with the signing of a new agreement on ballistic missile defense and was designed to sustain U.S.-Polish relations in the face of the German-Russian discussions we have discussed. The stop in Ukraine was meant simply to show the flag in a country rapidly moving into the Russian orbit. In both cases, the trip was about the Russians. Regardless of how warm the atmospherics are between the United States and Russia, the fact is that the Russians are continuing to rebuild their regional influence and are taking advantage of European disequilibrium to build new relationships there, too. The United States, still focused on Iraq and Afghanistan, has limited surplus capacity to apply to resisting the Russians. No amount of atmospherics can hide that fact, certainly not from the Poles or the Ukrainians. Therefore, if not a substantial contribution, the secretary of state’s visit was a symbolic one. But when there is little of substance, symbols matter.

That the Poland and Ukraine stops so obviously were about the Russians makes the stops in Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia all the more interesting. Clinton’s statements during the Caucasian leg of her visit were positive, as one would expect. She expressed her support for Georgia without committing the United States to any arms shipments for Georgia to resist the Russians, who currently are stationed inside Georgia’s northern secessionist regions. In Azerbaijan and Armenia, she called on both countries to settle the issue of Nagorno-Karabakh, a disputed region within western Azerbaijan proper. Armenia took control of the region by force following the Soviet collapse. For Azerbaijan, the return of Nagorno-Karabakh under a U.N. resolution is fundamental to its national security and political strategy. For Armenia, retreat is not politically possible.

This means Clinton’s call for negotiations and her offer of U.S. help are not particularly significant, especially since the call was for Washington to help under the guise of international, not bilateral, negotiations. This is particularly true after Clinton seemed to indicate that the collapse in Turkish-Armenian talks was Turkey’s responsibility and that it was up to Turkey to make the next move. Given that her visit to the region seems on the surface to have achieved little — and indeed, little seems to have been intended — it is worth taking time to understand why she went there in the first place, and the region’s strategic significance.

The Strategic Significance of the Caucasus

The Caucasus is the point where Russia, Iran and Turkey meet. For most of the 19th century, the three powers dueled for dominance of the region. This dispute froze during the Soviet period but is certainly in motion again. With none of these primary powers directly controlling the region, there are secondary competitions involving Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia, both among these secondary powers and between the secondary powers and the major powers. And given that the region involves the Russians, Iranians and Turks, it is inevitable that the global power would have an interest as well — hence, Hillary Clinton’s visit.

Of all the regions of the world, this one is among the most potentially explosive. It is the most likely to draw in major powers and the most likely to involve the United States. It is quiet now — but like the Balkans in 1990, quiet does not necessarily reassure any of the players. Therefore, seven players are involved in a very small space. Think of it as a cauldron framed by Russia, Iran and Turkey, occasionally stirred by Washington, for whom each of the other three major powers poses special challenges of varying degrees.

The Caucasus region dominates a land bridge between the Black and Caspian seas. The bridge connects Turkey and Iran to the south with Russia in the north. The region is divided between two mountain ranges, the Greater Caucasus to the north and the Lesser Caucasus in the south; and two plains divided from one another, one in Western Georgia on the Black Sea and another, larger plain in the east in Azerbaijan along the Kura River. A narrow river valley cuts through Georgia, connecting the two plains.

The Greater Caucasus Mountains serve as the southern frontier of Russia. To the north of these mountains, running east to west, lies the Russian agricultural heartland, flat and without any natural barriers. Thus, ever since the beginning of the 19th century, Russia has fought for a significant portion of the Caucasus to block any ambitions by the Turkish or Persian empires. The Caucasus mountains are so difficult to traverse by major military forces that as long as Russia maintains a hold somewhere in the Caucasus, its southern frontier is secure. During the latter part of the 19th century and for most of the Soviet period (except a brief time at the beginning of the era), the Soviet position in the Caucasus ran along the frontier with Turkey and Persia (later Iran). Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia were incorporated into the Soviet Union, giving the Soviets a deep penetration of the Caucasus and, along with this, security.

After the fall of the Soviet Union, the three Caucasian republics broke free of Moscow, pushing Russia’s frontier north by between about 160 to 320 kilometers (100-200 miles). The Russians still maintained a position in the Caucasus, but their position was not secure. The northern portion of the Caucasus consisted of Chechnya, Ingushetia, Dagestan and others, all of which had significant Islamist insurgencies under way. If the Russians abandoned the northeastern Caucasus, their position was breached. But if they stood, they faced an interminable fight.

Georgia borders most of the Russian frontier. In the chaos of the fall of the Soviet Union, various Georgian regions attempted to secede from Georgia with Russian encouragement. From the Georgian point of view, Russia represented a threat. But from the Russian point of view, Georgia represented a double threat. First, the Russians suspected the Georgians of supporting Chechen rebels in the 1990s — a charge the Georgians deny. The more important threat was that the United States selected Georgia as its main ally in the region. The choice made sense if the United States was conducting an encirclement strategy of Russia, which Washington was doing in the 1990s (though it became somewhat distracted from this strategy after 2001). In response to what it saw as U.S. pressure around its periphery, the Russians countered in Georgia in 2008 to demonstrate U.S. impotence in the region.

The Russians also maintained a close relationship with Armenia, where they continue to station more than 3,000 troops. The Armenians are deeply hostile to the Turks over demands that Turkey admit to massacres of large number of Armenians in 1915-16. The Armenians and Turks were recently involved in negotiations over the normalization of relations, but these talks collapsed — in our view, because of Russian interference. The issue was further complicated when a U.S. congressional committee passed a resolution in March condemning Turkey for committing genocide, infuriating the Turks.

One of the countercharges against Armenia is that it has conducted its own massacres of Azerbaijanis. Around the time of the Soviet breakup, it conducted a war against Azerbaijan, replete with the ethnic cleansing of hundreds of thousands of Azerbaijanis in a region known as Nagorno-Karabakh in western Azerbaijan, leaving Azerbaijan with a massive refugee problem. While the U.N. Security Council condemned the invasion, the conflict has been frozen, to use the jargon of diplomats.

The Importance of Azerbaijan

For its part, Azerbaijan cannot afford to fight a war against Russian troops in Armenia while it also shares a northern border with Russia. Azerbaijan also faces a significant Iranian problem. There are more Azerbaijanis living in Iran than in Azerbaijan; Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is a prominent Azerbaijani-Iranian. The Soviets occupied all of Azerbaijan during World War II but were forced to retreat under British and American pressure after the war, leaving most of Azerbaijan inside Iran. The remainder became a Soviet republic and then an independent state.

The Azerbaijanis are deeply concerned about the Iranians. Azerbaijan is profoundly different from Iran. It is Muslim but heavily secular. It maintains close and formal relations with Israel. It has supported the war in Afghanistan and made logistical facilities available to the United States. The Azerbaijanis claim that Iran is sending clerics north to build Shiite schools that threaten the regime. Obviously, Iran also operates an intelligence network there.

Adding to the complexity, Azerbaijan has long been a major producer of oil and has recently become an exporter of natural gas near the capital of Baku, exporting it to Turkey via a pipeline passing through Georgia. From the Turkish point of view, this provides alternative sources of energy to Russia and Iran, something that obviously pleases the United States. It is also an obvious reason why Russia sees Azerbaijan as undermining its position as the region’s dominant energy exporter.

The Russians have an interest, demonstrated in 2008, to move southward into Georgia. Obviously, if they were able to do this — preferably by a change in government and policy in Tbilisi — they would link up with their position in Armenia, becoming a force both on the Turkish border and facing Azerbaijan. The Russians would like to be able to integrate Azerbaijan’s exports into its broader energy policy, which would concentrate power in Russian hands and increase Russian influence on Russia’s periphery. This was made clear by Russia’s recent offer to buy all of Azerbaijan’s natural gas at European-level prices. The Turks would obviously oppose this for the same reason the Russians would want it. Hence, the Turks must support Georgia.
Iran, which should be viewed as an Azerbaijani country as well as a Persian one, has two reasons to want to dominate Azerbaijan. First, it would give Tehran access to Baku oil, and second, it would give Tehran strategic bargaining power with the Russians, something it does not currently have. In addition, talk of present unrest in Iran notwithstanding, Iran’s single most vulnerable point in the long term is the potential for Azerbaijanis living in Iran to want to unite with an independent Azerbaijani state. This is not in the offing, but if any critical vulnerability exists in the Iranian polity, this is it.

Consider this from the American side. When we look at the map, we notice that Azerbaijan borders both Russia and Iran. That strategic position alone makes it a major asset to the United States. Add to it oil in Baku and investment by U.S. companies, and Azerbaijan becomes even more attractive. Add to this that its oil exports support Turkey and weaken Russian influence, and its value goes up again. Finally, add to it that Turkey infuriated Azerbaijan by negotiating with Armenia without tying the issue of Nagorno-Karabakh to any Turkish-Armenian settlement. Altogether, the United States has the opportunity to forge a beneficial relationship with Azerbaijan that would put U.S. hands on one of Turkey’s sources of oil. At a time when the Turks recognize a declining dependence on the United States, anything that could increase that dependence helps Washington. Moreover, Azerbaijan is a platform from which Washington could make the Iranians uncomfortable, or from which to conduct negotiations with Iran.

An American strategy should include Georgia, but Georgia is always going to be weaker than Russia, and unless the United States is prepared to commit major forces there, the Russians can act, overtly and covertly, at their discretion. A Georgian strategy requires a strong rear base, which Azerbaijan provides, not only strategically but also as a source of capital for Georgia. Georgian-Azerbaijani relations are good, and in the long run so is Turkey’s relation with these two countries.

For Azerbaijan, the burning issue is Nagorno-Karabakh. This is not a burning issue for the United States, but the creation of a stable platform in the region is. Armenia, by far the weakest country economically, is allied with the Russians, and it has Russian troops on its territory. Given that the United States has no interest in who governs Nagorno-Karabakh and there is a U.N. resolution on the table favoring Azerbaijan that serves as cover, it is difficult to understand why the United States is effectively neutral. If the United States is committed to Georgia, which is official policy, then it follows that satisfying Azerbaijan and bringing it into a close relationship to the United States would be beneficial to Washington’s ability to manage relations with Russia, Iran and Turkey.

U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates visited Azerbaijan a month ago and Clinton visited this weekend. As complex as the politics of this region are to outsiders, they are clearly increasing in importance to the United States. We could put it this way: Bosnia and Kosovo were obscure concepts to the world until they blew up. Nagorno-Karabakh, South Ossetia and Abkhazia are equally obscure now. They will not remain obscure unless strategic measures are taken. It is not clear to us that Clinton was simply making a courtesy call or had strategy on her mind. But the logic of the American position is that it should think strategically about the Caucasus, and in doing so, logic and regional dynamics point to a strong relationship with Azerbaijan.

Racism In America - The Ugly Truth

In the run up to the '08 elections we were promised Obama would be a post racial president. Unfortunately many fell for this lie. Others simply voted out of white guilt for a crime they never committed.

Now after having endured not even 2 years of Obama's oppressive agenda it is all too clear that far from being post racial Obama and his allies in the Democrat Party are openly fanning the flames of racial resentment. His decision in the Black Panther case proves this beyond a shadow of a doubt. After all he is defending people who are calling for the killing of white people and their babies. We have also learned that the justice department has put on the back burner other cases of voter intimidation involving black defendants.

He is a strong supporter of hate crimes legislation which is not only unconstitutional but stokes racial anger when a white person receives a longer sentence simply because of the color of their skin.

Look at affirmative action. Now if you are white you can be denied a job simply because someone who scored lower than you has a different skin color. In their supposed quest for racial harmony and fairness the liberals have become the oppressors. Racist now only means that you are white. Even Bill Clinton a staunch liberal has been smeared with the racist tag when he went up against Obama.

I don't believe they care for racial harmony. It is my personal and strongly held belief that they thrive on the chaos and anger that the racial animosity that they stir up causes. After all they have convinced millions of whites to be ashamed of their history and their skin color. We are not even supposed to honor the founding fathers any more because they were all supposed racists. What passes as history, I am sorry social studies, in this country is countless pages of praise for every minority group imaginable while George Washington, Daniel Boone, and a host of others are simply forgotten.

This country will never fully unite until everyone has equal opportunity to succeed or fail. Not artificial benefits simply because of one's skin color. No more Black caucus, Hispanic caucus. Where is the American caucus? Why are representatives not concerned with bringing jobs and justice to everyone instead of only worrying about their particular ethnicity?

It is time to drop the hyphens and put an end to the Democrat Party's abuse of racial differences for political gain. When I was on active duty we had a saying, we are all green. It is time that we all look at ourselves as red, white, and blue. Long live the American Republic for it is more that its current unworthy leadership.

Gov. Jindal Is Still Struggling To Get The Feds To Do Their Job

Gov. Jindal has been forced to once again bring to the public's attention that the federal government has no plan to deal with the devastation brought by their failure to handle the oil spill.

I believe this brings up a much needed topic of reliance on the federal government. We as states need to become self sufficient again. The states have allowed the federal government to gobble up land and responsibilities they were never meant to have. As a result the Gulf coast is being devastated due to the fed's intentionally stopping every effort the states have made.

Both Alabama and Louisiana's governors were proactive in protecting their beaches and had plans in place. The feds either took their resources or out right denied them the right to implement their plans. We have forgotten that the feds answer to the states and not the other way around. It is time to restore the balance and this November will be your first opportunity.

Update from the House Republican Study Committee (RSC)


RSC Update: Monday, July 6, 2010

From the Chairman
No Independence Day celebration is complete without a heartfelt “Thank You” to the men and women who serve in our Armed Forces. They dedicate their lives to defending our great country and the principles of freedom and liberty on which it was founded. In order to perform their job, however, the members of our military need to be given the right resources at the right time. Unfortunately, the House of Representatives took steps last week to prevent that from happening.

Several months ago, Congress began the process of approving supplemental funding for operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. And after significant delay, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates pleaded with Congress to approve this funding by July 4. If that did not occur, he warned that the Pentagon would be forced to do “stupid things” to avoid disrupting military operations. Yet when House Democrats brought the legislation to the floor last Thursday, they tacked on tens of billions of dollars for a bailout of public sector union employees and other totally unrelated spending – sending the bill back to the Senate instead of to the President’s desk.

With that reckless decision, House Democrats ensured that our military would not get the resources it needs by July 4. It is simply unacceptable that the same people who insist on giving terrorists a timetable for U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan could not stick to a timetable for funding our troops in harm’s way. Our men and women in uniform deserve better.

Sincerely,

Congressman Tom Price

Government Healthcare - Bad Medicine

I don't even have the words for this post, but it must be addressed. What happened in the St. Louis VA center, exposing over 1,800 patients to HIV and other deadly viruses, happened because of government healthcare; Obamacare. This is the quality of healthcare headed our way is it is not stopped. Now imagine you are the one receiving the letter informing you that you may have been exposed to horrible diseases because it was more cost effective to not properly sterilize equipment before using it on the next patient.

NASA's New Frontier

The agency that is supposed to explore space has received a makeover, compliments of Obama. Barely recognizable anymore this agency has been reduced to nothing more than a foreign relations science experiment. I think that Obama's people have mistaken alien to mean foreigners; mainly Muslims.

Obama's main goal for NASA is to expand relations with Muslims and make them feel good about science, math, and engineering. What? Isn't that what school is for? At least the math, science, and engineering part. And the feel good part, how about start by not abusing women and becoming suicide bombers, that would go along way toward a feeling of good will. Obama has gone off the deep end on this one and is taking a once respectable agency right along with him.
