Georgia: 1 of over 100 Nations -US Actively Assists (in and out of US)

-Posted by D. Worth (US) | for- M. Barbay (France)

Georgia is only ONE Country of over 100 Nations receiving 'hands-on' US assistance. We've on-going medical institutions, developmental programs, and security personnel; of which different levels of expertise range from vaccinations, evolution of structure, and medical upgrades…

My friend is one of the thousands of US Physicians living abroad, to assist in medical technology, for the following Countries (below)... His interventions (alone) invalidate Putin's fear-based perception of US 'singling-out' the tiny Nation of Georgia…
These countries, of which America offers positive support:
Afghanistan, Albania, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Bulgaria,
Burkina Faso, Burma, Cambodia, Cameroon, China (People’s Rep. of) Cote d’Ivorie, Croatia, Djbouti, Egypt, Georgia, Ghana, India,
Indonesia, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Laos People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Mongolia, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, Romania, Russia yes Russia! Saudi Arabia, Serbia and Montenegro, Sudan, Thailand, Togo, Turkey, Ukraine, Vietnam…
UPDATE: This is an edit... I don't think anything is worth the furthered instability, we are seeing here... I can only say that I pray that help for others does not become a thing of the past... What it will take for better living, is a shared sense of community… Amidst a calmed set of circumstance.

Iraqis might choose to re-examine Russian contracts... If you are visiting here, please use foresight to support future council for Iraq... May God Bless. Perhaps this clip (below) will explain more...



I am too sentimental, but the fact is... This has little to do with people... Residents are urged to be calm. My thoughts are with you, always...

These regional conflicts (below) are not brought on by the US... They are issues which have manifest since the disintegration of the former USSR... The region has always raised concern of future "launching-pad" attacks...Both against the immediate populations, and the West...

History of a complicated (and unresolved) past...

Separatist conflicts (Source)

Most military conflicts in the post-Soviet space have had to do with the separatist desires of territories with different ethnic or religious demographics than the majority of the state they're officially recognized as part of... Some, destabilized, to be kept under control.

Conflicts in the former Soviet Union...
Nagorno-KarabakhSouth Ossetia1st AbkhaziaGeorgiaNorth OssetiaTransnistriaTajikistan1st Chechnya2nd Abkhazia - Dagestan2nd Chechnya

Such territories and resulting military conflicts have so far been:
Chechnya, where separatists have been seeking independence from Russia. This conflict has bled over into and Dagestan and Ingushetia likely, at times.
Transnistria, de-facto independent from Moldova
Abkhazia and South Ossetia, de-facto independent from Georgia, and Adjara has been seeking higher level of autonomy.
Nagorno-Karabakh, de-facto independent from Azerbaijan and Talysh-Mughan Autonomous Republic (Talyshstan) has been seeking higher level of autonomy.

Civil wars unrelated to separatist movements...
These have occurred twice in the region:
The Georgian Civil War between the forces of Zviad Gamsakhurdia and Eduard Shevardnadze. The war ended after Russian forces intervened in support of Shevardnadze's government, which in turn agreed to join the Commonwealth of Independent States.
The Tajikistan Civil War that lasted between 1992 and 1997.
