Clouds on the Horizon

Restless things are afoot in Georgia.

Authorities foiled an attempted army mutiny in Georgia that they believe was designed to disrupt NATO exercises that are to begin Wednesday in the former Soviet republic, the country’s interior ministry said.

The rebelling soldiers said they were “unhappy with the political situation in the country,” Utiashvili said. The government thinks the mutiny was intended to disrupt the NATO exercises.

Whether or not the “rebelling” soldiers were actually incited into some mischief by outside entities remains to be seen. But rest assured, the next major land conflict will be in Georgia, with Russia claiming to be protecting its citizens, much as it did last summer.
