Israel Has $1 Billion Invested in Georgia 10 Aug 2008 The Israeli-Georgia connection is estimated to be worth $1 billion, according to a former Georgian ambassador to Israel. The Jewish state and private investors have provided military assistance and advisers to Georgia, where pipelines pump oil destined for Israel. A new pipeline is being built to bypass Russian territory. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that Israeli companies in Georgia have begun evacuating their staff and that Israeli tourists are leaving for home.
The reason Israel is involved is they get most of their oil supplies from there; its just a continuation of the past discontent between Russia and Georgia. These two entities have been at it for years of course.
Also, it seems that Bush, Cheney, and the Neocons have lost another war.
