US intends to “defend” Georgia from Russia


The unsubstantiated statement of the Georgian Prime Minister Georgy Gakharia, who accused our country of organizing “cyber attacks against state and private structures of the country,” received the expected conclusion. After a number of diplomatic demarches, very smoothly and promptly carried out by a number of Western countries, primarily the United States and Great Britain, representatives of the American military department entered into business. Well, this, at least, finally makes it clear what the whole provocation was about.


So, speaking the other day on the air of the Georgian edition of Voice of America, Lt. Col. Carla Gleeson, who is the official representative of the Pentagon, made a statement that her department intends to "protect Georgia from threats posed by Russia." According to her, the US Department of Defense will continue to “continue to strengthen security and resilience” in Tbilisi, in which it sees its ally and partner. Ms Gleeson promised to “blame Moscow for activities leading to destabilization,” however, without specifying in what form this very “responsibility” should be expressed, according to Washington.

The rhetoric is more than significant, and also, we will be frank, extremely provocative. It is unlikely that the United States does not understand that it is precisely these advances that are accepted as a direct promise of military assistance in the event of an open confrontation with our country that have already prompted the top leadership of Georgia to an irresponsible adventure that has cost many lives. On the other hand, it is entirely possible that Washington is striving to implement the same scenario, for some reason believing that this time events will develop in a different way.

The words read on the sidelines of the 56th Munich Security Conference by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu to reporters who officially represented Tbilisi at this event can also testify to the readiness of our country’s ill-wishers to play the “Georgian card”. The head of Ankara’s foreign affairs ministry declared his state’s commitment to expanding the North Atlantic alliance precisely at the expense of countries that have the status of “NATO graduate students” and are generally actively seeking accession to this military-political bloc. Without a doubt, it was primarily Georgia and Ukraine, with which Turkey’s military cooperation has recently been developing more and more actively - and not at all to Moscow’s joy.

In connection with all the points mentioned above, it is perhaps worth being especially wary of any situations that may give direct reasons for anti-Russian attacks and provocations, including military ones. As a specific example of these, the Noble Partner 2020 international exercises, to be held in September this year at the Vaziani Georgian training ground, can be called NATO-sponsored. Five countries of the alliance will take part in the maneuvers: Great Britain, Germany, Slovenia, Turkey and the USA, as well as its partner countries: Georgia, Ukraine and Armenia. It is planned to attract military contingents with a total number of up to 3 thousand people, the main purpose of which, according to statements made during a recent conference on planning this event in Tbilisi, will be "developing skills for the NATO Response Force, as well as deepening cooperation and coordination of joint actions with Alliance forces. "

It’s good, if only everything is limited to this, and the “muscle game” at the borders of our country does not develop into attempts to test their strength in one way or another. It will be extremely sad if the tragic events of 2008 did not become a lesson for those who today are ready to risk their repetition, counting on the very ephemeral promises of overseas “friends”.

    the tragic events of 2008 did not become a lesson

    Apparently, Georgia did not draw any conclusions from the August 2008 war. Georgian authorities believe US promises to protect them from the "aggression" of Russia. The US with its statements on the protection of Georgia contributes to the escalation of the situation in the Caucasus region.

        Georgia did not draw conclusions from the past, when it miraculously survived, asking for the Russian Empire. negative Thanks to this, it is likely that the Georgian people themselves could not erase their enemies from the world map.

        I well remember the year 2008, ours did not take Tbilisi just because someone ordered it from above, otherwise they would have taken everything. The very presence of the Russian military in Venezuela limits the possibilities of the United States in this country.

    According to her, the US Department of Defense will continue to “continue to strengthen security and resilience” in Tbilisi,

    It is necessary to divide this proposal into two parts.
    Let the US Department of Defense continue to strengthen security, and let Colonel Carl Gleeson provide the “resilience” personally.

      А вот в время начиная с 1801 года Россия защищала Грузию, и за период войн с турками и персами, Россия потеряла более 25 000 человек. И присоединение грузинских разрозненных княжеств приносили России больше ущерба, чем прямой материальной выгоды.

      For 30 years, all Georgians have hoped for this miracle; in another way, it is difficult to call the possibility of the return of Abkhizia to Georgia. But Abkhazia is not returning and returning. Abkhazia is integrating more and more closely with Russia. Abkhazia and South Ossetia will never return to Georgia ...

    By all means, the United States wants to establish control over the Black Sea, specifically, the Russian Black Sea coast and the Russian water area. It didn’t work out with Crimea, they decided to establish their bases in Georgia. For a long time in Russia they will "reap" the fruits of perestroika and betrayal of the top of the CPSU.

Well, American strategists are also not stupid and understand that for thousands of kilometers it’s practically impossible to help, and even more so in a war with Russia. Obviously, the effect should produce on the layman. but as an article I liked the article.

    It will be extremely sad if the tragic events of 2008 did not become a lesson for those who today are ready to risk their repetition, counting on the very ephemeral promises of overseas “friends”.


    But there are a lot of hot goals, only Russia is already far from what it was in 2008 and the answer will be much more unpleasant.

    Oh, it’s not possible to organize any exercises in Mexico! To work out the reflection of the invasion from the north ...
    But you can try to exercise together with the Cuban Revolutionary Army.
    Work out cooperation with the Armed Forces of Nicaragua.
    Coordinate military operations with the Bolivarian Army of Venezuela.
    There’s nothing to poke our snout at our backyard, the Yankees are cunning ...
    We ourselves can do that ... yes

    Georgians and the United States, as always, have one result. Georgia believes the USA, and the USA again for its own. During the war they were armed against Russia, and right now they want to crush the country for themselves. Doesn’t anyone remember when, at the end of the war in 2008, they found on one of the military units of Georgia - the American flag and weapons, it was all NATO. They don’t want to learn from mistakes. (With great respect to Russia, Georgia)

    And Trump, and before him they said that "everything that America does is done for America’s interests"... neither Georgia, nor Ukraine, nor the Baltic States, nor anyone else ... This is primary. All that is said after is intended for domestic consumption of the listed neo-colonies. It seems that" the elephant was not noticed there. "

    Here! Why is America everywhere going to protect someone from an imaginary Russian threat. Well, just peacekeepers. Too quickly forget how much nasty thing they have done around the world.
