Russia’s Takeover of Georgia

August 14, 2018

I caught an interview on Fox with House Intelligence committee chairman, Devin Nunes, outlining the aggressive buildup of Russian military in Georgia. This is an important issue so, in order to learn more, I turned to a podcast recorded on August 10 of John Batchelor’s radio program.

There Batchelor in an interview with former Deputy Assistant to President Trump, Sebastian Gorka. delved into this problem in greater detail. Gorka resigned his appointment about the time Steve Bannon departed the White House staff. Gorka’s and Bannon’s absence left a gap in Trump’s foreign policy team that was buttressed only by appointment of National Security Advisor, John Bolton. Such changes in staff should not materially affect a nation’s foreign policy, but this Administration’s foreign policies are never certain.

Russian aggression in Georgia and Ukraine is the beginning of Vladimir Putin’s attempt to rebuild the Russian Empire. President Trump’s lack of a foreign policy directed at Putin’s ambitions is a threat to stable relations between our two countries.
