When it comes to Georgia and surrounding areas, the amount of strategic force applied because of oil is just unreal -- it totally overwhelms all other considerations. Is it necessary to remove the Russian bases to secure the oil pipeline? If so, perhaps we will see very serious effort in this direction, because of massive money and support from allies.

Of course it is not so necessary because of oil, but there is no arguments for existence of this bases as well. What in fact those troops are doing there? Spying only? Georgia don’t need them.

For transit security, more important is separatism not only in Abkhazja ans South Ossetia but also in Karabah region.
