TBILISI, Georgia — A contingent of Green Beret trainers landed in this ex-Soviet republic Sunday, adding Georgia to the list of countries where U.S. troops have deployed in the 8-month-old counter-terror campaign.

After two days of travel from Fort Carson, Colo., about 50 Army Special Forces soldiers, in green camouflage uniforms, laden with heavy packs, stepped briskly down from a U.S. Air Force C-17 transport at the Georgian capital's airport.

Considering that the Russkies have deliberately been destabilizing Georgia for years now, by providing support for the "rebel uprising" and then using that as an excuse to leave garrison troops in Georgia, I think the Georgians are damn glad to get us in there.
