Informational war is on2010-07-06 16:39
The events of last years clearly show that informational war is a state matter. One should not wrongly believe that the anti-Russian propaganda is something arranged by outcasts. Everything has been planned, weighed up and measured, and Georgia is just a megaphone. Orders are made and sponsored from other places, which can be easily spotted judging by the tone of rhetoric.
Georgia, or, rather, its propagandistic mechanism seems to be living and developing according to Doctor Goebbels, who is known to assert that the more fantastic a lie is, the sooner it is believed. And so Tbilisi follows this scheme without caring much for the smallest credibility of what it says.
Things going on in the Georgian informational space as far as Russia is concerned can hardly be called anything but war. An informational war is a set of events and operations held in times of peace and war where information is a weapon, a resource and a purpose at once. One of the forms of such war is the design and mass distribution of disinformation or packed information through the enemy's channels or global information influence networks to influence the opinion, intentions and orientation of the common people and decision-makers.
It will soon be two years since Georgian aggressors treacherously intruded the territory of the independent republic of South Ossetia. On the night of August 8, an armageddon of Georgian shells came down upon the Ossetian Tskhinval. For several months, the countries of Europe and North America had been teaching the basic principles of democracy to Georgians, carefully providing the "students" with the most up-to-date weapons and ammunition.
For some reason, the Georgian propaganda believes that the more time passes, the more impudent a lie can be. However, according to Goebbels, "if you utter an impudent lie and keep repeating it, the people will ultimately believe it". Besides, the main point is not only slinging mud but also finding supporters in the "enemy's" camp. At this point, we have got such lavish opportunities that we do not even need to invest any money. Let us recollect those days and the people, one by one, although it sounds shameful of Russia.
In these days, Russian human rights advocates stopped hesitating and tore the pleasing masks of patriots off their faces. When there was bloodshed, and soldiers and officers were dying those advocates were shouting about the "unjustifiably excessive application of force against the sovereign Georgia", "an adventurous decision on large-scale Russian bombardments of Georgia that had no reasonable political objective", as well as about Russian government having "drawn a country to the verge of political isolation for the first time since the Soviet times".
Leader of URF (Union of Right Forces) Nikita Bely, leader of UCF (United Civil Front) Garry Kasparov, Boris Nemtsov, leader of movement For Human Rights Lev Ponomarev, Ivan Starikov from RPDU (Russian People's Democratic Union), Maxim Reznik and Ilia Yashin from The Apple and others were deeply concerned about the "brotherly Georgian people" that "received a heavy moral wound from Russian intervention for many years". Oppositionists were breaking their neck to justify the half-sane Georgian fuhrer Saakashvili, accusing Russia not only of deliberate aggression but also of exaggerating the amount of victims. According to them, Georgians had been almost deliberately brought to Tskhinval to be yielded to assassins and villains, while the few Ossetians were, of course, shot dead by Russian servicemen.
