Look who's here

Meanwhile, on a less surprising note, Israel continues to emulate the old apartheid-era South African regime by exporting terror to anywhere prepared to put up the cash. In this case, Georgia.

I liked "Meanwhile, the Israeli trainers are trying to glean from reports on the movements of the Georgian army whether their trainees have internalized Israeli military technique". I mean, gosh, I don't know. Have they been planting booby traps outside South Ossetian schools and firing flechette shells into civilian areas? Have they been shooting handcuffed captives? Bulldozing houses onto their occupants? So far I haven't heard any such reports: some people just won't be taught, eh?

I haven't read about it, but was it the same trainers that helped our military in Guantanamo, or were we teaching them techniques?

Not sure, but the Georgians clearly learned one important lesson from their mentors: when up against guys with heavier weaponry than rocks and suicide belts, run.
