Tbilisi, Washington To Discuss Afghanistan Supply Corridor

TBILISI (Eurasianet)–Washington’s point man for Afghanistan will be traveling to Georgia to discuss Tbilisi’s offer to facilitate the supply of arms and supplies to North Atlantic Treaty Organization troops in Afghanistan.

US Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Holbrooke will arrive in Tbilisi “soon” to hold talks on Georgia’s cooperation with NATO, US Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg told journalists in Tbilisi on February 5.

During a meeting with Steinberg, President Mikheil Saakashvili repeated an earlier offer to provide a corridor for US arms supply via Georgia, the US official said. Steinberg added that he redirected Saakashvili to the Pentagon to discuss the issue.

    Holbrooke is most pro-Turkey person the world has ever seen. This is the guy, who instead of focusing on Rwanda, fought so hard to save a few thousand Turks in the Balkans. What a disgrace. He should have been fired when we lost the 7 CIA officers to the Turkish double agent who blew himself up. His wife, who lives in Turkey, said her husband died as a martyr.

    Where ever Richard Holbrooke goes Christians get screwed. He is the poster boy for American Imperialism. Papa Bear (Russia) ain’t gonna be happy with this. Apparently Georgia has not learned any of its lessons.
