4. What happened recently in the Caucasworld and the Great Caucasworld ?
5. Why the need of a Caucasworld or Great Caucasworld organization and policy ?
Conflict in the Nagorno-Karabakh area, Borders conflicts betweeen Georgia and Russia, Unrecognized or semi-official states, multiple ethnic groups, war in Iraq, war in Syria … among others are the issues in the Great Caucasus area. These issues affects the geographical zone, and all the countries which borders them. Off course, the Great Caucasus held a strategic imortance that can not be ignored by its members, this imply a real mutual Great Caucasus peace and prosperity policy.
What is the Great Caucausus ?
The Great Caucasus is a geographical area that surrounds the Caucasus Mountain.
The countries includes in the Great Caucasus are :
Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Russia, Syria, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Ukrain, Uzbekistan
The Great Caucasus could be nicknames the « Six Seas », as it embraces the Sea of Azov, the Black Sea, the Mediteranean Sea, the Caspian Sea, the Aral Sea and the Red Sea.
The Great Caucasus is a circle that includes people with common history linked to the Caucasus, and the nations that have make its history.
The History of the Caucasus :
We will not describe the evolutions of this area, from Anatolian, Irano-Persian, Armenian, Turkic, Mongol, Russian, Nomayad, Ibero-Caucasian, and Greco-Roman, Arab, Turkish, Sumerian, Assyrian and Babylonian (each of the last three peoples are noted as Mesopotamian civilisations), among others.
What we can say is that the GREAT CAUCASUS is the crossroad of Asia and Europa, and linked several influential locations through eras.
The Great Caucasus was a fundamental checkpoint for great empires, causing the direct interactions between Persian, Russian and Turkish imperial empires.
Accordingly to the late Zbigniew Brzezinski, former US National Security Council Advisor, the key of power for the United States of America or another power was Eurasia.
Our purpose is not to deny this fact, we could do better by precise this assertion.
Eurasia is not a precise concept; some see Eurasia as the addition of Europe and Asia (with Arabia included or not), and some as the intermediate place between Europe and Far Eastern Asia.
Even if Eurasia was Europe and Asia, or just the Central Asian steppes, no one can deny than the majority of that space is controlled by Russia, China, and countries linked to them by geo-proximity or common history.
As US geo-strategist, Brzezniski pointed the US officials attention on this intermediate place, to break the Soviet assaurance in his geo-zone.
From the Brzezinski Eurasian doctrine came the US assistance to the Mujahideen fighters in Afghanistan, a then direct neighboor country of UUSR, a US assistance that lead to the Soviet-Afghan War, the « Afghan Trap » set by USA to USSR, as for Brzezinski himself : » We (the US) did not push the Russians to intervene, but we deliberately increased the likelihood that they would. «
The withdraw of a pro-communist afghan regime by djihadist fighters ocertainly opposed to the soviet secularism was a way to destabilisate USSR, which at this time nearly entirely controlled Eurasia as it contained present states as Armenia, Azerbaijan, Russia, the western Turkestan socialist states … for a total area of 8, 649 500 sq mi !
The Soviet Hegemony on Eurasia was a legacy from the USSR predessor, the Russian Empire which led a progressive conquest of Eurasia, after the Tsars conquest of Siberia.
Your servant don’t know if US geostrategists who succeeded Brzezinski were aware of the Russian conquest of Turkestan when they launghed a policy of US implementation in Central Asia in the 2000 years, for the War on Terror, but they couldn’t not be aware of the Russian conquest of Caucasus and the geo-human troubles that occures by this away.
The Chechnya War was the last symptom of this long share history between Great Caucasus States.
Concerning the control of the Helasia, and by this way of Eurasia, the Great Caucasus is nothing more than crucial for local and international powers.
Our thesis is simple : All conflicts that occured since the end of the Second World War in Eurasia is linked to at least one State of the Caucasworld or concerned neighbors, geo-allies, geo-opponents of at least one Caucasworld State.
Let examine our assumption by detailing wars that take place in Eurasia and how they were linked to at least one State of the Great Caucasus or concerned the designated single or numerous states curretn or former neighbrs, current or former allies.
For example :
- The First Indochina War know in Vietnam as the Anti-French Resistance War (1946-1954) :
- Involved Caucasworld states : USSR, as support of Viet Minh /
- Involved Extended Caucasworld states : none
- Great Caucasworld State geo-allies involved : China, East Germany /
- Involved Great Caucasus States geo-opponents involved : United States of America
- The Greek Civil War (1946-1949) :
- Involved Caucasworld State involved : USSR (indirectly)
- Involved Extended Caucasworld States : none
- Involved Geo-allies of a Caucasworld/Extended Caucasworld state : Bulgaria, Albania, Yugoslavia and other Eastern Bloc countries /
- Involved Involved Geo-opponents of a Caucasworld/Extented Caucasworld state: United States, United Kingdom
- The Indonesian National Revolution or Indonesia War of Independence (1945-1949) :
- Involved Caucasworld State involved : none
- Involved Extended Caucasworld States : none
- Involved Geo-allies of a Caucasworld/Extended Caucasworld state : none /
- Involved Geo-opponents of a Caucasusworld/Extended Caucasworld State : United Kingdom, for and with the Dutch Empire; as they are geo-opponents of a Caucasusworld State (USSR)
- The Paraguayan Civil War (7 march 1947, 20 august 1947) :
- Involved Caucasworld State : none
- Involved Extented Caucasworld State : none
- Involved Geo-allies of a Caucasworld/Extended Caucasworld state : Paraguayan Communist Party; linked to the Soviet Communist Party
- Involved geo-opponents of a Caucasusworld/Extended Caucasworld State : none
- The Indo-Pakistani War of 1947-1948 :
- Involved Caucasworld State : none
- Involved Extended Caucasworld State : none
- Involved Geo-allies of a Caucasworld/Extented Caucasworld state : none
- Involved Geo-opponents of a Caucasworld/Extended Caucasworld state : United Kingdom, thorugh the British Indian Army
- We will extend our list for the future readers of this paper, to create an evolving list.
As the Cold War intensified, we can see that the main Caucasworld State directly or indirectly involved in conflicts was the USSR, and the main involved states from the extented Caucasworld are Middel-East Countries.
This means one thing : the geostrategic policy is the same in the Caucasworld or the Middle-East, as the two geo-zones belongs fully for the first and partially for the latter, to the Extended Caucasworld.
The different wars in this area are attempts to establish local or extralocal powers in the zone, in conflicts between factions of this area.
The intent of the establishment of local and extralocal powers in this zone are interests, security and control.
With conflicts in the Caucasworld and extended Caucasworld, which will lead to common instability, the first solution is to create a GREAT CAUCASUS ORGANIZATION.
This organization will reunites countries from the Caucasworld (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Russia, Syria, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Ukrain, Uzbekistan) as full members according to their wishes, and associated countries excluded from the extended Caucasworld as associates members.
A CAUCASWORLD ORGANIZATION, proposed by the News agency K1FO, will be one the sole places, if not the sole, where Iranian, Saudi, Israeli, Russian, Syrian, Georgian, Turkish, Armenian, Iraqi and Azeri leaders, among others, could push the reasons of negociation and peace before the process of war exposed in this paper.
Such a Caucasworlder should be based on a Golden Rhombus reuniting Moscow, Ankara, Riyadh and Tehran.
