Now, at last, we know the truth about Georgia
The myth of a plucky republic being 'ethnically cleansed' by an evil Russian regime was just that: a myth.
"NYT says, 'The accounts suggest that Georgia's inexperienced military attacked the isolated separatist capital of Tskhinvali on 7 August with indiscriminate artillery and rocket fire, exposing civilians, Russian peacekeepers and unarmed monitors to harm.'"
This is propaganda. It's making excuses. It's saying that it was inexperience that caused the targeting. It's a lie. The Georgians were guided by the U.S. and Israel. All the targeting was guided by hi-tech means from space. Georgia didn't roll in blind. They went in to set up a pretext for attacking Russia in the press and driving public opinion in the West against Russia and for more U.S. military presence on land, sea, and air in Eastern Europe — plain and simple.
Georgia has also been heavily armed by America, under the auspices of the 'war on terror', and has been encouraged to hope for membership of NATO.
Israel — you forgot Israel. What are you afraid of? Are you worried about being called and anti-Semite by Political Zionist warmongers and land thieves? Israel was deeply involved every step of the way.
Western policy in Eastern Europe and the Caucasus is helping to fuel local tensions and promote instability, and for no definable strategic purpose.
This is hogwash. The strategy is exactly as I've said from the very moment events began unfolding in South Ossetia. It's all part of the Grand Chessboard of Empire building.
Your article is way too timid. You've barely scratched the surface of the truth.
