Oil Casualties: Kazakhs Mull Exporting Through Russia

From Turkey’s Hurriyet:

"Kazakhstan is considering pumping its oil through Russia as an alternative to the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) pipeline due to increased security concerns over the clashes in the Caucasus, a Turkish daily reported on Thursday. A high level Kazakh official told Turkish business daily Referans that question marks now hang over the security of the BTC pipeline. “We could reconsider our decisions on sending Kazakh oil to the world market. Changing the (export) route is in our agenda now,” the official was quoted as saying by Referans."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Way to go, Bush Administration!

You could have turned Russia into an ally and actually developed something approximating a real, working partnership.

Of course, that would have taken some knowledge of history, (to which this administration has proven itself thoroughly allergic), and a sane, far-sighted foreign policy (which this administration hasn't been able to identify with a flashlight and both hands).

Instead, you have driven that possibility off a cliff with your belligerency.
