Joint Georgian-American military exercises started near Tbilisi

Joint Georgian-American military exercises started near TbilisiAt the military base in Vaziani, near the capital of Georgia, Tbilisi, joint exercises with the American army began under the name Agile Spirit.


“The purpose of the exercise is to deepen coordination and interaction between military units, assist in the exchange of skills and capabilities, improve efficiency for peacekeeping operations and counter-insurgency operations,” the Georgian Defense Ministry quoted the message “News-Georgia".

From Georgia, 450 troops from the 4th Infantry Brigade of the Ground Forces take part in the exercises. The US Army is represented by 350 marines and an anti-terrorism battalion.

Representatives of the US Army have already declared their "interest in joint exercises" and stressed that they will favorably affect US-Georgian relations.

Agile Spirit teachings are featured in the annual training curriculum. Now, US marines will train Georgian troops to carry out combat missions during the peacekeeping campaign in Afghanistan.

      No, amers are preparing cannon fodder for their replacement in Afghanistan, tired of putting their asses under Taliban bullets!

      For some reason, I thought that the Russian Federation conducts exercises with the participation of Americans every year. And where is the war?

    Georgia and the United States are hostile states - if it were possible they would attack. If there is no possibility, then there is pressure and diverse propaganda, which unfortunately has turned many Russians into opponents or destructive elements.

    Learning hard is easy in battle; learning and labor will grind everything. You can laugh at the Georgian army as much as you like and make fun of their leadership, but Georgia received a good lesson in 2008. And having experienced a bitter defeat from the Russian Federation, they took seriously the preparation of the army. Most likely, Georgia will never go alone against the Russian Federation, but the surrender of its territory to NATO will greatly damage the interests of the Russian Federation. The Georgian army, as it is not a matter of parallax, will cover the withdrawal of NATO troops and the leadership of the republic in case of their flight from Georgia. I’m not a military strategist, but without this it’s clear that the Caucasus is a strategic height, Amer climb into Georgia in which there is nothing, in general, for what? In order to be closer and higher to Mother Russia. Apparently missed the maternal affection.

    I served in the construction battalion in Soviet times, many different nationalities served with me, including Georgians. The only ones who reacted to our appeal, where there were only Russians, (and in the senior appeals there were only five Russians) in the truest sense of the word with joy. What is happening in Georgia now doesn’t fit in my head. I could imagine that the Uzbeks are against us, the Tajiks, a number of other Asian republics and of course the “always European” Baltic, but that Georgia ... Even after everything that happened, I don’t believe that the Georgians are against us.
