Breaking: Russia Set Up Georgian Military

August 11, 2008

Some interesting analysis on the Russo-Georgian Conflict, including how Putin stole a page from Hitler 1939. Via Ralph Peters at Armchair General:

First, let’s explode the myth disseminated by the Russian government (and accepted by many in the Western media) that Georgia started this fight by “invading” South Ossetia. Setting aside the fact that South Ossetia is legally a part of Georgia, this fight began with a set-up worthy of Hitler’s machinations in Czechoslovakia and Poland. Having created, funded and fully backed the South Ossetian separatist movement since the Soviet crack-up, in late July the Kremlin ordered the local militias they own to provoke the Georgians.

In the week prior to the invasion, South Ossetians, aided by Russian “peacekeepers,” had shelled and raided Georgian villages beyond South Ossetia. In Tbilisi, the freely elected president, Mikheil Saakashvili, a pro-Western leader, took the bait and walked into Moscow’s trap—he ordered Georgian forces to go in and clean out the areas where the South Ossetian militias were operating.

Within hours, the Russian military was on the move.

So we find that Russia set the whole thing up, which should come as no surprise considering Putin’s KGB routes. Finally there is this:

Anyone seeking proof of who orchestrated this war has only to consider how swiftly Russian ground, air and naval forces “responded” to Georgia’s attempt to protect its citizens. Even the U.S. military—which is vastly better prepared, better trained and better organized than Russia’s—could not have launched so broad a coordinated assault from a standing start.

    Yeah, either we stop the Russians here or we fight them later down the road, when the Bear is even stronger.

    It is pretty clear to all but MSM, that Russians are in the big lie mode. I believe virtually nothing the Russian are saying to media who rarely questions their verracity.
    Did not Hitler say he was invading other countries to protect German citizens?
    This invasion is truly a setup and other countries had better watch out if someone does not stop the Russians.
