2010-03-31Weapons Trafficking, End User is NOT Georgian Territorial Integrity
The fallout of the war of August 2008 brings us up to speed with a much larger game that is being planned and played-out within the framework of today’s security reality. I've always suspected Georgia of having been, perhaps even before the final breakup of the USSR, a hub and transit point for most every illicit item one could imagine.
