I don't watch TV. Is it true that the mainstream news on TV is reporting that Georgia was right to surprise-attack the South Ossetians? Mike Whitney took some figures from a Russian doing some independent commentary from Russia: "In a 2006 referendum, 99% of South Ossetians said they supported independence from Georgia. The voter turnout was 95% and the balloting was monitored by 34 international observers from the west." Mike says that the capital of South Ossetia has no military bases, but Georgia attacked the population center with fighter planes, multiple rocket launchers, artillery, and tanks. Why is anyone saying that Russia started the fighting?
Well, the war-mongers of the military-industrial complex are the ones who are always one-sided about these things. It's okay for Kosovo (Kosovo) to leave Serbia, but when South Ossetians want to leave Georgia, it's not okay, all on account of which side of the Empire wars one is on.
Well, I'm not on either side, but I know who has the greater evil in this instance and it isn't Russia.
