American general: Georgia deserves NATO membership

45

"Given the size of Georgia, you can see how great its contribution to the mission in Afghanistan. This small country has given a lot to NATO."


This opinion was expressed by the former commander-in-chief of the North Atlantic Alliance in Europe, American General Philip Breedlove, in an interview with the Voice of America radio station, answering a question about the possibility of Georgia joining NATO, given the existence of territorial disputes with its neighbors.

The general believes that no country has done more for the NATO mission in Afghanistan than Georgia. This country unquestioningly fulfilled all the requirements of the alliance, trying to become a member of this military-political bloc. Breedlove believes Tbilisi's efforts to integrate into the West have exceeded all expectations:

In my opinion, Georgia has already reached the finish line in terms of its contribution to NATO.

The general said that if we count the efforts invested in the mission in Afghanistan, then, as a percentage of the population, Georgia sent the most soldiers to Afghanistan and lost most of them.

US Air Force General Philip Breedlove is now retired. Previously, he led the American military contingent in Europe, and then the NATO forces on the continent. Prior to that, Breedlove participated in hostilities in the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan.

      Georgia sent the most soldiers to Afghanistan and lost the most.

      Cannon fodder.

      For the sake of the interests of the Americans, Georgians send their boys to the next world.

      All right, butting with neighbors (what mountains without rams laughing ), but why do the Georgians want Afghanistan? request

    Especially when you consider that Georgia has unresolved territorial and armed conflicts, which is contrary to the NATO charter, then okay. What can not be done only for the faithful slaves. Let them join. With friends like Georgia, you don't need enemies. laughing

    “In my opinion, Georgia has already reached the finish line in terms of its contribution to NATO.

    - A little bit more...
    - Already at the finish line
    - Almost reached
    - blah blah blah...
    Turkey has also been joining the European Union for years ... twenty ..
    Have the territorial problems of Georgia been resolved? Or is Georgia ready to join NATO by renouncing its claims?
    General is a balabalet, but NATO does not need problems, especially with unbalanced and sick ambitions countries!

      Judging by the open information, 2004 thousand Georgian servicemen have visited Afghanistan since 11. 32 were killed, more than 200 were wounded. There were about 500 soldiers from Lithuania, 1 dead.

    It took fresh "cannon fodder". It will be good if it is Georgian "meat".
    And no paragraphs on territorial disputes of any NATO charters bother the general.
    Ukraine, wash and get ready.

    It is naive to think that NATO membership is recognized for merit - even active participation in foreign missions.
    The real reason is Georgia's disposition and attitude towards Russia.

    Officially, NATO's defensive pact is showing surprisingly aggressive expansion. it's a dangerous game.

    The gallant speeches of generals and politicians with the prefix ex, most of all raise the confidence of the modern elite of Georgia, and not only of Georgians. I think that this is what happened, but the issue of territorial claims has not been resolved and there are no fools in NATO at all. once to think, to believe the promises of the former .............

      Are you hinting at their territorial problems with Abkhazia and South Ossetia? So "gentlemen" nothing prevents them from changing their own rules and do not care about these problems.

        Well, the Naglo-Saxons constantly use this, but Russia is no longer the same as in 2008.
        And on the American continent, there are also quite a few who would like to make friends with Russia, tired of the US dictatorship.

    the possibility of Georgia joining NATO, taking into account the existence of territorial disputes with neighbors

    Why should they? It doesn't matter who to receive, there is already a full vivarium. That and look, a military conflict will begin between such odious members of the organization as Turkey and Greece. The US is being eliminated and Cyprus may well become completely Turkish. With such a composition, Georgia can be accepted. What a difference already. request

    In the glorious times of the USSR, the BF construction battalion was based in Liepaja, so the whole staff, which was all sorts of Givi, Mishiko, Vano. Well, they were stupid. And how they were chased by sailor patrols, it was dear to watch. Dragicomedy.

    American general: Georgia deserves NATO membership

    First - laboratories, then 08.08.08/10.08.08/XNUMX, then an incomprehensible defile and a sea battle on XNUMX/XNUMX/XNUMX on the Black Sea ...
    What's next? Probably the deployment of the American INF Treaty in Georgia?
    It seems that it is time to block the Georgian Military Highway ... And then speak in strict tones about the spread of NATO, the likely threat to Russia and its retaliatory actions.
    It has not been shaking in the mountains for a long time ... yes
