2009-10-27 11:48

"While I will never hesitate to use force to protect the American people or our vital interests, I also promise you this - and this is very important as we consider our next steps in Afghanistan: I will never rush the solemn decision of sending you into harm's way," Obama said Monday during a visit to Naval Air Station Jacksonville. "I won't risk your lives unless it is absolutely necessary". - The Associated Press


Previously Georgia and the USA started the "Immediate Response"2-week joint military maneuvers, held in the course of the program for training military to be sent to Afghanistan.

The drills are designed to promote Georgian forces interoperability during the international security assistance mission in Afghanistan. For the period of these exercises the training will be focused on preparation of Georgian Armed Forces for counterterrorist operations. Georgian servicemen together with the US militaries will perform counterterrorist operations in Afghanistan.

The group of U.S. marines started training Georgian military in early September. The 31st infantry battalion is undergoing the 6-month training course. Then the battalion will participate in the peacekeeping operation in Afghanistan.
