Georgia's President Mikhail Saakashvili says he has proposed to the United States that his country become a logistics hub for the expanding U.S.-led war in Afghanistan. The Obama administration may not be eager to accept the offer as it seeks to improve relations with Russia.
In a telephone interview with The Associated Press, Saakashvili outlined a Georgian proposal to develop a corridor for armaments across Georgia and Central Asia to Afghanistan. Georgia is offering its Black Sea ports to Western military supply ships and its airports as refueling points for cargo planes.
Despite the fact that Russia is not making good on their offer to open a supply line through their territory, we aren't exploring the Georgian offer to "improve relations" with Russia.
Yeah, our troops can eat and shoot "improved relations with Russia."
