Azerbaijan: Hypothetical U.S. Armed Forces Support

J. Gary's Windows Live Space details a hypothetical military operation in which U.S. armed forces support Azerbaijan in restoring sovereignty over part of its territory captured by a mythical enemy, “Ahuristan.” The blog by U.S. Major Gary Casey provides a background to the kind of training officers undergo in preparation for military action to enforce UN Security Council resolutions and to protect Azerbaijan's oil reserves.

    Did the instructors read “Absurdistan” ?
    A very good book, by the way.
