NATO concerned over possible Russian military bases in Georgia's breakaway regions

NATO on Wednesday expressed concern over the possible building of Russian military bases in Georgia's two breakaway regions, which Moscow has recognized as independent states.

"This issue of the possibility of building Russian bases inside Georgian territory is one of real concern to the NATO allies because it does seem to be or would be in violation of Georgia's territorial integrity," said NATO spokesman James Appathurai.

Here we go again, just when you thought the west and Russia were patching their relationship. I guess from each side's perspective they are on the right side, but don't you just wish they could agree sometimes?

Maybe they can yet make some progress.


NATO Secretary-general Jaap de Hoop Scheffer would raise this issue with Russian Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov when they meet on the sidelines of the Munich security conference later this week, he said.

Not just tents, but radar stations and missile defense systems! That's really my point about both sides being on the right from their perspective. Look how much grief Cuba caused.

IMO, if South Ossetia and Abkhazia want to break away from Georgia, then it should be the peoples right to do so.

The right and honorable thing for a nation to do is to hold a referendum to allow the people in those provinces the ability to vote on their separation.


Clearly South Ossetia and Abkhazia want to join the Russians. That is the WILL of the people.

Georgia clearly sees them as property instead of people.


Georgia lost all support from me by not holding a referendum as is expected of free nations.
