Hating is not the best solutions go to you church. I am sure your priest does not teach you to hate.Or does it?

Well, first of all, there was genocide (!!!) happening first in Bosnia and then in Kosovo due to Milosevic’s politics and that’s why there was NATO intervention that violated territorial integrity of Serbia. Nothing of that scale has ever happened in Ossetia nor Abkhazia. Second, Russian army are not peacekeepers. Peacekeepers should be international and should not supply one side with weapons and military advisors, they should not plunder and they should not have brutal war record Russians have from Chechnya (that was massacre!). Third, South Ossetia is historical and almost central part of Georgia with huge Georgian “minority”. Ossetians are relative newcomers from behind mountains. Fourth, Russia played a major role in feeding the conflict since early 90s and getting advantage of it, for instance they distributed Russian Passport to the population to get “right” for intervention and closely cooperated with Ossitians and Abkhazs. Fifth, Russians are not creating new growing democratic independent states, but dysfunctional colonies with loyal leaders like in the bad old days of USSR. Sixth, listen how Russian leaders like Sergei Lavrov speak about Russian right to forcefully decide lives of people in Russia’s “sphere of influence” and you get the idea. Seventh, Russian state controlled media launched large disinformation campaign creating until today false image of genocide, later contradicted by western reporters and organizations like Human Rights Watch. We had war reporters in Georgia even in 1993 and believe me, they gave us different story, and they were horrified what Russia was doing there. And that continues until today, even in Chechnya, in Dagestan… Saakashvili may have done wrong moves, but it’s not Russian business. Nothing personal against Russians, but Kremlin’s foreign politic is so much horribly wrong. If you don’t like what is happening in Kosovo, Iraq or Afghanistan, it is still an attempt to throw over totalitarian regimes and create moreorless democratic countries and prevent further national conflicts. What Russia does in Caucasus is right the opposite.

“Great powers” talk: Saddam’s army had some 375,000 regular soldiers (not to mention the militias) and was completely destroyed in 3 weeks and the multi-million city of Baghdad fell in about 3 days.

For a comparison Chechen separatist forces had only few thousand men in semi-regular forces, but it took Russia about HALF YEAR to get control of this tiny territory in 1999-2000 (and besieged Grozny for more about 3 months) – not to even mention losing the first war before that.

But they achieved their goal: the average Russian who watched the news channels will carry the idea of Georgians-commiting-genocide in his head till he dies. And tell it to his neighbors and his children, too.
Thats how you achieve indoctrination: build on people’s inbuild paranoia, fears and distrust of everything outside their circle and when their support is needed [i.e. for supporting geo political actions or smt similar], they are easy to trigger.

Happens all over the world.

They are Georgians, dressed up as Russians, stealing their own stuff [in Russian controlled territory, filling up Russian trucks with Russian licenseplates] to mislead the Western [read: american] press into believing Russians are looting and therefore bad people.

All this talk about prestige, greatness and whatnot, is just abstract bla-bla which has no effect on the everyday life of the majority of people, except when the bombs come down.

Like I wrote before, the governments are in a very populistic way appealing to nationalist sentiments to authorize/legalize their actions.

And they know they can get away with virtually anything, in particular in E-Europe/Russia, where people are not used to raise their [individual] voice in protest against their government, or to be critical individuals. If you are not with us you are against us, this idea is still very present in many peoples brain. Planted there by the state.

The ‘state’ : a superstructure, untouchable, looming over them like a thundercloud, controlling and manipulating its citizens, instead of being a service provider representing them, like in W.Europe.

But maybe this will change, like in China, where remarkable things are taking place. And this medieval relying on traditions and national and ethnical identity will be replaced by personal identity and achievements.

Instead of focusing on what sets us apart it’s more productive to focus on what unites us, in the end.

Saakashvili just thought that, as he has a foot in NATO, he’s allowed to do just what he wants and kill peacekeeping soldiers mandated by the UN.

It was a wise European move to prevent Georgia from stepping fully into NATO this spring. In this war, the only obvious thing is that Saakashvili is just another American puppet, and that the US just want to make Georgia one more Nicaragua/Panama/call it as you want.

Saakashvili has nothing in common with European values, although he puts the EU flag for each one of his declarations. He’s only interested by power and has seen the US collaboration as a means to maintain his power.

Russians are fully right to destroy all the equipment of the Georgian army. Just ask yourself, what it would have been within 5-10 years more of NATO providing weapons to Georgia? No doubt that Saakashvili does not give a f… about civilian casualties, and he would just have made the same with a much higher death toll within 5 years, had he been smart enough to wait. But by chance, he’s dumb enough to think he can do anything and that we’ll back him. Now his retirement (or death) would be a big relief for all the world.

At last, it’s completely crazy how politics just do not mind what the Ossetian (and Abkhazian) PEOPLE want. Fortunately today the secretary of the OSCE said that Ossetian should have their word to say about their future. I think it’s the first ever Western politic to say this, which shows how partial our countries can be. Please think about it, you fellow readers from the US and Europe. And I hope this will also show to the Russians that not all Europeans and Americans think alike…

But discussing demographics is pointless, it’s the wishes of people who live there that must count. These people have been struggling for almost 20 years to separate from Georgia, declaring that they wanted independence just when the USSR collapsed. They are still struggling, because we, the West, just believe we can decide who deserves independence and who does not, backing this with dumb arguments such as demographics and percentages, and making fun of what the people want.

Yes they brought it on themselves, and yes they were the aggressors, THIS TIME. However if Russia was suppose to keep the peace why did they let South ossetian bandits fire rockets at the Georgian bases? And why give Russian passports to non-Russian citizens? The whole thing reminds me of the Sudetenland and Germany’s thin excuses for annexing their neighbors.
Russia will be looked out of the Financial markets, and it’s the common people that will suffer as usual, all the while cheering those that made them starve.

I mean, for instance, why does an army have to destroy:

An old woman’s home
A furniture store
An electronics store
An old man’s three wheeled cart (probably all he has in the world)

I can easily understand the burned out tanks and military equipment, the dead soldier’s bodies, but the wanton killing of old folks and the destruction of the poor? Who does this benefit and what does it prove?
It’s the same thing that makes my blood boil when I see pictures of OUR OWN involvement (and others) in IRAQ…

LEAVE THE OLD, YOUNG AND INNOCENT out of it and just fight the soldiers. Unless an old woman is holding an RPG or housing enemy troops she is no threat.
