Pentagon intends to strengthen military cooperation with Georgia

38
Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense of the United States (and there are such posts in the Pentagon with his astronomical budget) Michael Carpenter said that Washington intends to intensify military engagement with Georgia. According to the American military official, there is no talk about the deployment of the American contingent in Georgia, but the intensity of the joint military exercises of the United States and Georgia will definitely be increased.

Pentagon intends to strengthen military cooperation with Georgia


RIA News, citing Carpenter’s statement, reports that not so long ago Georgia took part in joint military maneuvers with US and British servicemen. The total number of troops from the three countries that took part in those exercises was more than a thousand or more. Of these, 500 people are Georgian soldiers and officers. We are talking about maneuvers "Nobel partner" ("Worthy partner"). Apparently, Washington and London are understood to be representatives of the Georgian army as “worthy partners”. Training maneuvers were conducted for two weeks in May.

Recall that Georgia is bursting into the North Atlantic Alliance with all its might. To do this, official Tbilisi is trying to fulfill all the financial requirements emanating from NATO, bringing the expenditure of its military budget to 2% of GDP and inviting NATO troops to its territory to conduct exercises of various kinds.

      Georgians apparently took it too seriously:

        "Not into a horse feed" is impossible, from some Georgians, to make a modern, combat-ready army, the chorus - Yes, and the army - No.

          It would be a desire. Georgians know how to fight.

            Yes, this is understandable, only then they fought for the MOTHERLAND, and now for the interests of the United States. Feel the difference.
            The 250 thousand Georgians who died on the fronts of the Second World War probably look with surprise at what their descendants are doing.

        Well, history does not teach them, in the sense of tie-eaters and Yankees.
        And from the Georgians to make a combat-ready army in general today is absurd! Who remembers the great Georgian victories? And what were, remember, who fought for the Georgians !? The same Alans!

      Washington intends to intensify military engagement with Georgia.

      Well yes, it's Georgia,
      Georgia (US state)

      The following is a google translation of a quote from a wiki-pedia:
      Georgia is a state located in the southeastern United States. It was created in 1732, the last of the original thirteen colonies.

      Everything is logical, if in English!
      And the rest is not important for the staff!

        Georgia occupies a strategic position in Transcaucasia, it is the key to Armenia and Azerbaijan, dozens of pipelines pass through it. Nowadays nobody feeds Georgia especially, people do not live badly in Georgia, economic reforms have paid off. I often visit Georgia and have not been to Georgia for a long time. Kaliningrad - so - in Georgia people live much better than in one of the advanced regions of Russia, Georgian restaurants often have no places to sit down, and in Kaliningrad restaurants and cafes were almost without visitors.

            Your key will not work for a long time, at least I personally, and many forum users from Azerbaijan have already concluded that the unresolved Karabakh conflict makes both countries vulnerable.
            Pipelines bring income to the country and increase its importance in the world.
            In Georgia, people live better than in Russia at the moment, if the people have money to sit in a restaurant.
            In Georgia, people do not just sit in cafes and restaurants, as in Greece. Georgians actively absorb food smile , I even wonder how they manage to "fit" so much food wink in itself.

              Under Shevarnadze, they also sat in restaurants. The only salaries there have now been raised, but not for everyone.
              26% according to statistics are unemployed.
              35% of the working population receive a salary.

          Dear Razmik .... where did you get that Kaliningrad is an advanced region in the Russian Federation ??? I visit Georgia, there are many classmates left there and I would not say that the economic reform is good there and succeeded .... Tbilisi sparkles with new buildings, hotels, casinos, etc. - only VIP customers in these casinos are Russians ... and the bulk of people can’t find work, Georgians do not work in specialties, the pension is fixed (only for old age) within our 6000 rubles. Social is average, expensive gasoline and stuff .... so there are enough problems there too. In Batumi, the situation is the same, they live off profits from hotels and casinos .... the business is fully focused on the Turks.

            And which region of Russia is advanced - Moscow and St. Petersburg? I have been not only in Kaliningrad, but also in Tver and Ivanovo, Kaliningrad, in comparison with these two cities, is clearly an advanced city.
            I haven’t been to Georgian casinos, but I often go to restaurants and there the main contingent of visitors is Georgians themselves, people of Slavic appearance there constitute an overwhelming minority.
            I can’t say about pensions, but fruit and vegetables cost several times less than in Russia, the food is delicious. Traveling abroad costs a penny.

      Do you seriously think that when Medvedev was the president, he ruled Russia, perhaps of course, but only after agreeing with who is in charge of our homeland now, so I’m sure that Georgia was not worth taking, because Putin is a very far-sighted politician, he is a strategist and not a tactician!

    I don’t believe in the Georgian army, well, the Georgians are not imprisoned for that. Suck money from someone - that's it. From Russia it is impossible to suck, it means from the Americans. Of course, there is a danger that Georgia will join NATO and deploy missile defense elements there. So it is necessary to "work" with Georgia in all possible directions, except for "feeding"

    Georgia is striving with all its might to join the North Atlantic Alliance. To this end, official Tbilisi is trying to comply with all financial requirements emanating from NATO, bringing the expenditure side of its military budget to 2% of GDP and inviting NATO troops to its territory for conducting exercises of various kinds.
    Attention question! But what is the NATO charter rewritten and allows countries such as Georgia and Ukraine to join the structure? But what about territorial problems? After all, the entry of such candidates means an automatic declaration of war of the Russian Federation.

    Russian and Soviet people loved Georgia, poets wrote verses about Georgia

    The moon above the noisy Kuroy
    And over the lights behind Kura
    Tiflis under the lunar veil,
    But breathes stone heat.
    Tiflis does not sleep, happy, idle,
    Laughter, talk, music in the gardens,
    And there - the diamond sparkle flickers
    On barely visible ridges.
    Having gone into the fog, far north
    With lots of snow and ice
    They are all stricter, all sadder
    They look at the moon smoke of the valleys.

    Poor Georgians used to be masters and honored guests, as well as coveted suitors for 1/6 of the land, but now they have fucked themselves and are being substituted for the whole world. The people are terrified, the elite is playing dermocracy! It is necessary to tell the brothers Ukrainians that they would bring a lawsuit against Georgia, because for the famine and repression, it was not Russia and the Russian that killed them, but the terrible and great Stalin - a Georgian !.
