''You know yourself what a vigorous activity is now under way in Georgia, Batumi and Poti, aimed to reinforce the NATO navy presence. And we are going to take counter measures,'' he said.


And Abkhazia has already taken the only counter measure it's capable of even attempting: It's let Russia in to ward NATO off. It should be noted that the strategy is working perfectly for them, though.

Since I don't feel like dying anytime soon, I hope it continues to work and NATO keeps itself to Georgia's waters.

I think we are heading for another cold war, but the fact is that russia isn't really the power it once was. Sure they got a massive fleet in the black sea, but they got much trouble in their, corruption is flagrant, Mafia got hold of most cities and Poutine doesn't actually do anything to counter it, he is just another power money monger. I don't think they would actually start WWIII but by bringing fear into people they make it more easy to sell arms and such.

Closer and closer this conflict goes. When Europe gathers in Germany and marchs east then THEN you will know. You will know my namesake was always right.

.... I mean this is freaking nutty. You got military naval forces play 2 year old. "I'm only 3 yards from you" says nato. "Well I am only two yards away from you" says Russia.
