War did not let Georgia to NATO

6645.jpegOn August 10, 2008 at 8:56 a.m. Georgia announced ceasefire. Russian consul was handed a note with Mikheil Saakashvili's relevant order. However, Georgian president was lying again. The point is that Mishiko had been reckoning not on his battalions but on the West's immediate support in his adventure; however, he backed the wrong horse, being used as a trial balloon in resistance to Russia, and everyone just got it in the neck.

What was the reason for the turn of events on the third day of the war? So much trouble taken for such embarrassment?


If we track down the chain of events that happened in the Georgian-Ossetian conflict area, it becomes clear that Georgian Armed Forces had performed operational deployment before the military actions started. The major part of the force grouping involved in the operation against South Ossetia was deployed in the theatre of operations before August 7.

Georgia was performing active fortification of the location, preparing a staging area for an attack in the conflict zone. Georgian air forces regularly trespassed on South Ossetia's air space. Right before the Georgian military aggression, the Immediate Response-2008 military training was initiated in Georgia, involving about 1425 American troopers and marines, 600 soldiers of the 4th infantry brigade of Georgia and twenty officers from Azerbaijan and Ukraine.

The training was held under the aegis of European Command. It was aimed at practicing the issues of "taking the problem territory under control and performing the stabilization and security maintenance operation there". According to the developed plan of operation, after the territory of South Ossetia was captured by Georgian troops, they were to be replaced by servicemen from US, Azerbaijan and Ukraine, while the released Georgian forces were to seize Abkhazia.

One should not forget that President of Georgia M.Saakashvili came to power with two basic slogans: regain the lost lands and revive the unified Georgia. He often made loud statements that one day he would surely bring back his country's lost territories. However, there was an absolutely different problem behind the fine words: Saakashvili intended to bring these territories back by all means, through blood and tears.

Saakashvili knew well that Ossetians would never agree to affiliate with Georgia peacefully. The only way was to attack them treacherously, kill the unconquered, mop up the territory, destroy all the life support systems and squeeze those remaining alive beyond the South-Ossetian boundary.

In 2004, Georgia set up an economic blockade of South Ossetia. High points around Tskhinvali were captured. Tskhinval was intensively bombarded at daytime. South Ossetia announced a large-scale aggression against it. Abkhazia placed its armed forces in operational readiness. Georgia's military adventure of 2004 failed and ended up in a number of loud resignations of high-ranking military heads.

After the failure, a large-scale preparation for the next decisive war was started in Georgia. Saakashvili took his previous mistakes into account and exerted maximum efforts preparing for the military operation. Georgians were trained by Americans and the Israeli. Since 2000, American instructors made attempts to exercise Georgian special forces. After half a year of training, Americans failed to make a special unit of Georgians. As they explained their failure with all the simplicity, "Georgians are downright cowards and are terribly afraid of any military actions".
