Clinton to calm US allies on eastern Europe, Caucasus trip

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton travels to eastern Europe and the troubled Caucasus region Thursday on a mission to allay the concerns of regional allies over newly invigorated US-Russian ties.

A top item on Clinton's agenda will be to explain warmer relations between Washington and Moscow to countries in the region which once chafed under Soviet control.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This trip has very little to do with explaining the current status of US/Russian ties to our allies.

This weekend, Secretary of State Clinton will be in Baku, Azerbaijan, a central Asian republic bordering Iran's northwest border at the Caspian sea.

She will be talking to the leadership there about what they are prepared to do if their neighbor, Iran is attacked, by a US/Israeli strike force.

Also, mid-July, there will be another delegation from the US to Baku to discuss military cooperation between Azerbaijan and the US.

The timing of these meetings, two weeks apart, is no accident.
