Summary/Abstract: The paper covers and explains how the “Islamic Caliphate”/DAISH has been posing a threat not only to international community at a global level but also to Georgia at local level. Georgia lays on the most prominent geopolitical crossroad, linking West (EU+USA) and East (China+CIS states) and with its location Georgia has played double gamble with its nation’s future geopolitical destiny. The location attracts positive as well as negative factors in defining Georgia’s security provisions and in some cases it could cause the so-called “security dilemma” for Georgia’s geopolitics. Hence, Georgia’s security is facing with a new phenomenon, the so-called “asymmetrical threat” that could be really dangerous to national interests.
