Word just came down from HQ, gentleman. We have official confirmation that at 0600 hours three Russian armored divisions crossed the border and linked up with rebel forces to the north. The Russian foreign minister has issued a statement condemning "International meddling in regional affairs". Look's like we've got ourselves a full-scale international incident.
For now the U.S. is still backing the legitimate Georgian government. Our orders are, quote, "To aid the Georgian army's defensive operations in any way practical". Short and sweet that means we've got the green light to blow stuff up.
First priority is to slow down the main armored column headed for Tbilisi. We've identified an ambush point about 60 klicks west of here where the highway crosses under a rail line. A Georgian command post is nearby - if it's overrun their entire western flank will collapse. Take out the Russian advance patrols first, then the tanks. And keep your demolitions expert under cover until you need him - those tanks aren't going to be stopped by anything less than a rocket up the tailpipe.
