In February 2004, came the message expanded state of the American Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis (Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis), Jacqueline Davis and Michael Sweeney "Central Asia in U.S. strategy and operational planning: Where are we going?" . The essence of dzhospetiel retractable design was to appoint two interrelated theses: "In Rethinking our approach to Central Asia, the United States should adhere to two strategic considerations. First, they must identify and separate the Central Asia and Caucasus. A close relationship between the Caucasus and Central Asia, we restrict us to develop a creative idea about how these two world areas most associated with their natural neighbors - especially with the Middle East, South Asia and East Asia in the case of Central Asia. For its part, the Caucasus, in itself, is is probably more appropriate to consider in the broad sense of the Black Sea coastal zone and how the "end" of Europe, not as an appendage of Asia, or the coastal area of the Caspian Sea.
Second, because of the above, the United States must continue to move beyond the existing terms of the Caspian Sea as the main place for the safety of "Eurasia". Caspian hydrocarbon resources are important for world energy markets, but they are not revolutionary, and besides, they do not even pale in comparison, to avoid long-term depending on the Persian Gulf as a major world region, which produces oil and gas. Thus, the Caspian region can not be considered as an axis, and the American strategy for the Caucasus and Central Asia. "
