Colonel Robert Hamilton on Abkhazia (again): A Reply (again) from George Hewitt

Some 10 years ago I had an exchange of views with one Robert Hamilton of the US Army regarding what he wrote at the time about the Georgian-Abkhazian conflict. See, for example: http://abkhazworld.com/aw/conflict/720-reply-to-hamiltons-reply-from-george-hewitt and http://circassianworld.blogspot.co.uk/2008/09/some-thoughts-arising-from-lt-col.html. He has now returned to this issue in two pieces that appeared on consecutive days (viz. 18/19 December 2017); see: www.fpri.org/article/2017/12/post-soviet-wars-part-i/ and www.fpri.org/article/2017/12/post-soviet-wars-part-ii/. However, Hamilton does not limit himself to just the one post-Soviet conflict, but it is the Georgian-Abkhazian conflict to which I shall limit myself in this riposte, highlighting especially the author’s comparison of the Georgia-Abkhazia and Georgia-Ajaria cases.
