Pentagon seeks to gain foothold in Kazakhstan against China

Analyst Alya Kaminskaya does not rule out that the Pentagon seeks to use the Almaty hub [in Kazakhstan] as “an air base for reconnaissance and military cargo planes.” She points out that Almaty International Airport no longer belongs to Kazakhstan since news emerged in May that 100% of its shares had been purchased by Turkey’s TAV Airports Holding.

Russia had no right to stop the transformation of Kazakhstan from an impoverished, brutal dictatorship into a peaceful and prosperous democracy just as the US did for Iraq, the Ukraine, and Libya, a democracy that would provide a corridor through which peaceful, pro-democracy activists like al-Qaeda and ISIS could get into Xinjiang, remove all the Chinese, and declare Xinjiang to be the independent country of East Turkestan (this has been a major US project for at least 20 years, and it looked like it was getting a LOT closer until Putin interfered).
