Page -20- With the invasion of Georgia, Russia now has a firm grip on the only pipeline it did not control to Easter/Southern Europe, as well as the major supply to Israel. However, with its invasion...there were three other major benefits that have occurred. The oil that flows through these pipelines originates from Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan. Both of these countries were pro-US, which is why they assisted in building the pipelines with US funding. ADDITIONAL GEORGIAN INVASION BENEFIT 1: Azerbaijan . (Baku oil region) has just switched from being a pro-US government…to pro-Russia. It has also switched a large portion of its oil supplies from the US/EU pipeline…to the Chechnyan/Russian pipeline.

Unformatted text preview: ADDITIONAL GEORGIAN INVASION BENEFIT 2: Turkmenistan has also followed the same direction. (Switched from pro-US to pro-Russia and started exporting more oil/gas to Southern Russia) ADDITIONAL GEORGIAN INVASION BENEFIT 3: Israel had been helping Georgia, and as a benefit had been allowed to use a Georgian airfield for Israeli military aircraft.

Russian military forces captured that base, and still hold it. GRI Newsletter, January 2009 © Roger K. Young 2009 all rights reserved...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
