Georgia, On the Rebound

Hello all!

I doubt many of you will be interested in the following link, but I thought I’d share it anyway because A) it’s very significant in international affairs, and B) I think it’s interesting. 🙂   If you will recall, Georgia, a country struggling to implement a westernized values system emphasizing personal and economic freedom, was shamelessly invaded by Russia last year in a blatant power grab involving an oil pipeline running through Georgia, a pipeline that threatened a Russian monopoly on the oil supply to Europe.  This article gives you an update on what’s going on in Georgia as they try to recover and continue their forward progress.   I hope you find it enlightening and encouraging, if not interesting.  I believe it’s important to support the efforts of Georgia.  They are not a large country, but they are struggling to bring about social and political change that is desperately needed in that region of the world.

  1. Mark,

    Thanks for this. I am researching into it. I want to find out how dedicated they really are to true liberty. I agree very much: it is interesting.

    With joy and peace in Christ,

  2. Jay,

    I’m personally convinced that they really are committed, but as will usually be the case with countries coming out of an authoritarian domination and bordering the most totalitarian sector of the world, there will be problems and inconsistencies in/through the process of implementing a westernized style of democracy. So, don’t be surprised to find out that sometimes they come dangerously close to reverting back to their old ways. 🙂

  3. Mark,

    Yes, I realize that the sophistries of the devilish regimes penetrate very deep. Especially in those places that have resided under their shadow for so long. See how much America has been affected, and realize what places like Georgia have to struggle against. I will be praying for them.

  4. Thanks a lot for posting this, Mark! I’ve been researching diplomatic ties, international relations between countries (or the absence of it) and this has helped a lot. 🙂

    God bless!

  5. You’re welcome, Alyssa. 🙂
