US to prepare 9 battalions of Georgian Armed Forces

As the TASS, Georgia and the United States signed a Memorandum of Understanding on the implementation of the Georgian Defense Readiness Preparedness Program (GDRP), which involves assisting this Caucasian country in the training and education of military personnel of nine battalions of local armed forces over the next three years.

In the next three years, together with our American colleagues, we are planning to staff, equip and conduct training for the military personnel of nine battalions of the Georgian Armed Forces.

- explained the Minister of Defense of Georgia Levan Izoria.

According to him, the Defense Preparedness Program of Georgia "aims to make Georgia a safer country in the future."

Earlier, he reported that the preparation of the relevant infrastructure necessary for the implementation of this program has already begun.

In accordance with the plan adopted in 2016, the Georgian armed forces are currently being reformed. It is assumed that the structure of the land forces of the currently existing five brigades (4 infantry and 1 mechanized) will remain four (which will allow to reach full-strength). It is planned to change their locations. The plan states that the number of Georgian armed forces in 2017 will remain unchanged - 37 thousand troops. Innovation is a return to mandatory appeal for military service.

        If a favorable situation arises, they will certainly attack and deploy any NATO facilities on its territory, any use of its airspace and sea will be warmly approved. For NATO does not enter there for a year or two, but creates a whole belt of Russia’s unfriendly states on our borders, designed for the long term.

          In military terms - Georgia is a poor territory and has no prospect! Therefore, no one will place serious facilities in Georgia ... 9 battalions trained even by Darth Vader, in the event of a war with us, and no one else, they will not even be able to get out of the RPD ... However, let them train - what is it to us?

            The Baltic states, Georgia, and similar neighbors are microscopic militarily if Russia uses all its military power, but my message is that they learn how to interact within the bloc and non-aligned allies are only formally not in NATO, but in fact the same preparations for aggression It means that they can be written into the forces of the West, but what kind of war with the West was easy? And this despite the fact that all the wars of the West were split and we participated in one of their alliances, as it is, it is rallying against Russia and our guard underbelly in the form of Ukraine, the Baltic states, etc. they manage to drag by hook or by crook to their side.
            Georgia is a wretched territory, but Ukraine is not. And so the naval command is placed there and it seems that part of the seals will move there, as well as on the northern flank, in Klaipeda. And what is so strange if it is added to the posts of Georgian border guards (already packed with modern surveillance equipment) a group of coordinating officers of the headquarters of the NATO Navy in Europe?
            Miserable, the Kadar Gorge alone is worth concentrating on the militants who infiltrated Chechnya in large groups. The use of the Georgian airfield network to quickly jump to our borders cannot be discounted, just like the placement of strike missile systems covered by the Patriot battalion. it’s ridiculous to make fun of the wretched, but it’s precisely in the long term that such a “buildup” of our neighbors does not bode well for us. You will say that we, according to our latest doctrine, will cover them all at once, if only the USSR built the most powerful combined-arms bastions on the border with NATO and tank armies supported by numerous air forces (and they don’t give them 10 raw planes per year). That’s why they were doing this. And they tried to push the NATO deployment lines as far as possible from the central region with Moscow in the center. Retrograde, After all, everything is decided by the use of the Strategic Missile Forces, and therefore let them unfold, although in Finland (also, by the way, miserable and funny)

              The Kodori Gorge after 2008 is completely controlled by Abkhazia, or Russia! Georgia is not dangerous in military terms because it is fully controlled, and most importantly, we control the transportation routes ...
              Ukraine is a different scenario, but after the loss of Crimea, its importance as a military bridgehead fell by several times! As before, Poland remains the main springboard against us. It is in this direction that we should focus our efforts. Joint exercises "West-2017" are precisely what this is aimed at ... hi

      A joke about the attitude of Americans towards Georgians:
      The sluggish conflict of Abkhazia and Georgia. During mortar shelling by Georgians of the Abkhazian checkpoint, a donkey was killed on which firewood was transported, the cooking capacity of the field kitchen was broken, and other minor damage was inflicted on military property. With regard to such a “significant” victory, a grand banquet was organized with the invitation to it of all those involved in the army and not very, but respected people. Chic tables, barbecue, wine by the river, long toasts and polyphonic singing. In general, everything is as it should. Among the guests there is a certain John Smith - a muddy person in dark glasses and camouflage without insignia. All guests understand that he is a representative of the special services, but they do not emphasize this tactfully. At the height of the fun, the toastmaster rises and says: “Friends, now I want to give the floor to our dear friend - John Smith. Tell us something, genatsvale!”
      This John Smith, who was specially prepared for work in the Georgian direction, gets up from his chair and begins to speak through a translator toast about the beautiful Georgian land that gives birth to such powerful warriors, about the great union of America and Georgia, about future victories, etc.
      And at the end of his speech, clearly wanting to please the public, he adds: “But I had a mother for these Abkhazians ...”
      Suddenly there was an oppressive silence at the table. All guests sit and are silent, looking down. John Smith, realizing that he had blabbed something wrong, shoves the elbow of the translator and asks what happened.
      The translator says that he has just publicly expressed his intention to enter into an intimate relationship with a woman of childbearing age on the side of the enemy, which theoretically could lead to the conception of a child and, most likely, a male. The boy will grow up, become a warrior and take revenge. In short, he now expressed his intention to strengthen the side of the enemy. John Smith has lost his mind about such a statement of the question, but the situation needs to be corrected. He gets up and says: “Friends, you didn’t understand me correctly. Actually, I wanted to say that I also had a Georgian mother ...”

    The Georgians didn’t make any conclusions .... well, get ready, the USA has already “really” helped you, your former president Mishiko is still on the run. And do not teach and prepare your army of 37 thousand people, arm, you have only one result - for Russia you are just a pawn, in other matters as for the USA you are a bargaining chip ....

    It would be better if they began training employees of hotels, guides and animators. This would be many times more beneficial for Georgia.

    Georgia at the end of the XVIII century. became part of Russia. Now it is a branch of the state of Georgia. Other considerations are not significant. The purpose of the US administration is to prevent the restoration of a large independent state, such as the USSR. For this, the US administration will deal with the separation of the Russian Federation. Thus, the United States will train 9 battalions in Russia against the USSR.

    Well, it’s not their fate to fight, they would grow grapes, give birth to children, who suggested to them that they are warriors, a fighter Obama or something ???
    And you know, as soon as all the military hype from the states ceases to give money wherever it goes, Russia will immediately fall in love and crawl away. Unfortunately, this is apparently a viral infection that has affected the former social camp and is called paid Russophobia against the background of pathological lack of dependence of patients.

    In vain you boast, probably they scored how many of your Russians ran 41st, so everyone knows how to run, now boast, roll yours right now, and so on. Wagnerites and what have you done - but not to hell, a question for smart cleavage will last 3-4 Russian army brigades against the Narmal army ?? the answer is terrible for you = a few hours, and you laugh at the Georgian army, oh hero defeated the four infantry brigades. Yeah, how many guys in the war with the Georgians lost eta you tell them with a laugh that they will tell you pass.
