U.S. troops still in Georgia



By John Vandiver, Stars and Stripes


U.S. personnel responsible for training members of the Georgian military remain stationed inside the volatile country, where fighting erupted Friday between Russia and Georgia over the breakaway province of South Ossetia.

The U.S. European Command said on Monday that there were no plans at this time to withdraw the U.S. military trainers from the country. There are still 127 U.S. trainers in Georgia, where the American forces had been preparing the Georgian army for operations in Iraq.

Meanwhile, U.S. civilians started to make their way out of the country over the weekend, according to the U.S. Embassy in Tbilisi.

Convoys carrying family members of diplomats, government workers and ordinary citizens bound for the embassy in neighboring Armenia continued on Monday.

I have an e-mail friendship with an officer in the Russian Air Force and near as I can tell the Russians are laughing at the U.S. knowing full well we are powerless to really do anything about the hostilities in Georgia

That's what they think.

God help them if they truly decide to go down that path.
