Last year, at the opening of the new building of National Guards on December 26, President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili stated that the country is ready to start preparing reservists “to fight the enemy”. Nevertheless, the most interesting points in Mikhail Nikolozovitch’s speech are worth quoting. “There is a war against Georgia and we are threatened every day but the enemy should not cherish any illusions, for any adventure will meet with a rebuff. “We must prepare any citizen in the country, including women, so that they would be ready and armed to provide resistance to the enemy. Each town, house, street and family should become a citadel of resistance and all of us should be ready for a war”.
