U.S. Seeking Georgia's Help In Possible Strike Against IranTopics: Iran
According to the Jerusalem Post, American officials have been quietly probing whether Georgia, which is situated just northwest of Iran, will be willing to allow Washington to use its military bases and airfields in the event of a military conflict with Iran. The US already maintains its own military bases in Georgia, so are we looking at a "for real" possibility or a possible misdirection for Iran to "stew over" ?
On the other hand, the Georgia option may be a peek at the stick being formed while Bolton lays out a carrot - Iran could defuse international concerns over its nuclear program by following the example of Libya.
