The world knows the aggressor by sight

2010-08-09 17:30


On the night of August 8, Georgian troops initiated a concentrated artillery attack at Tskhinval and the adjoining regions. In several hours, the city was assaulted by infantry and armor. Doesn't the scenario remind you of our history - 22 June 1941? Only on August 8 at 14.59 did Russia join the battle, forcing Georgian side to peace.

It is also notable that on August 8, none of the Georgian leaders said that the war was launched because of the Russian troops. On the contrary, there were statements about "establishing constitutional order" and the intention to "draw the line under criminal regime".


According to western observers, in the morning of August 7, Georgia concentrated about 12 thousand people and seventy-five tanks at the South-Ossetian border near Gori. As was stated by Colonel of the German General Staff Wolfgang Richter who was staying in Tbilisi, he found no proof of Saakashvili's statements about "Russians having advanced into Roksky tunnel long before Tbilisi gave an order to attack".

Saakashvili's lies are evident even to American press. On 10 November 2008, American magazine BusinessWeek wrote: "So far, none of the independent media resources confirmed Saakashvili's statement that on August 7, Russian troops had crossed the border before Georgia deployed an attack". It is especially strange that Georgian authorities never mentioned anything of the kind during the conflict, saying that their activities were aimed at "resuming constitutional order" in South Ossetia. Besides, Georgia said that it assumed an offensive in response to the bombardment of four Georgian villages on the previous evening".

 However, another independent media source, The New York Times paper, provided evidence from the independent western observers who also refuted the official Georgian version. Observers from Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe said they found no evidence confirming that the mentioned villages were really attacked. On the contrary, they accused Georgia of "absolutely unselective and disproportionate attack" meaning intensive bombardment of the civilian targets by artillery shells and unguided missiles.

 However, it is nice to speak about the action dynamics and weapons when you are alive; still, when the aggression leads to the death of hundreds of people, one has to take up arms, put the politics aside and chase the conquerors as far as one chooses.

Just think of it: those people could have been alive if it had not been for Saakashvili.

 According to Georgian data, Russia has significantly underreported the losses. For instance, on August 12, President Saakashvili stated that the Georgian Air Forces killed 400 Russian solders. The distribution of this information is well paid for, so the Georgian gossip flew on the "green" wings. "58th Russian Army lost 1789 soldiers in the battles". "There are so many corpses of Russians in Georgia that they would not even take them to Russia".

 Georgia provides contradictory assessment not only of the enemies' losses but of its own losses as well. As soon as the adventure was on, Tbilisi began to conceal its losses. On August 10, 130 people were reported to be killed and 1165 - to be wounded. Almost 200 dead soldiers were taken to hospital in Poti on August 11. The data was specified only on September 15: the death of 154 servicemen of Ministry of Defense, 14 MIA officers and 188 peaceful citizens; besides, the bodies of 14 killed servicemen were never found. Considering the new data, Georgia's losses amounted to 412 people killed.
