Georgia - Here we go again in the name of oil.

There just happens to be a major pipeline running straight through the capital Tbilisi. This pipeline supplies crude oil from the Caspian area to the West.

Doesn't bother me much. I'm far too old for conscription.

'For the BTC project to remain economically viable, oil prices will have to remain high. The new pipeline is also part of American attempts to bypass Iran in "the new great game".'

Western backed state turns drinking water off. South Ossetia Ready to Explode?
