Georgians abandon Gori without a fight
The Times is reporting that the Russians have captured the city of Gori in central Georgia, but that information seems doubtful. The Russians have denied the claim and the only source for it is the Georgians themselves, who have not been exactly reliable with their information up to now. What seems to have happened is that the Georgians have abandoned Gori without a fight. The Daily Telegraph witnessed Georgian soldiers in:
. . .a full scale disorganised and panicked retreat from Gori. They were crammed into vehicles heading down road from Gori to Tbilisi, the capital. They say 6,000-7,000 Russian troops are heading their way and the Georgians are abandoning their positions.
This sounds as if a rumour went round the no doubt terrified Georgian troops that the Russians were on their way, and those troops panicked and fled the area. The Georgians are now trying to save face by claiming that a city that the Russians have not even attacked has been captured by them.

I hope that somebody in authority in Georgia is talking surrender before too many innocent people die.

They haven't got a hope.

We've got a problem Houston.

The mad US Neo cons, that staged this war, had Israeli private armies training the Georgians.

Has the Pentagon, lost all sense?

Writing in the Washington Post today, Robert Kagan goes even further, suggesting that the Georgia-Russia conflict may be the start of World War III:

Do you recall the precise details of the Sudeten Crisis that led to Nazi Germany’s invasion of Czechoslovakia? Of course not, because that morally ambiguous dispute is rightly remembered as a minor part of a much bigger drama. […]

The mood is reminiscent of Germany after World War I, when Germans complained about the “shameful Versailles diktat” imposed on a prostrate Germany by the victorious powers and about the corrupt politicians who stabbed the nation in the back.

Like a good neoconservative, Kagan also links the Western response to the conflict and its wider policy towards Russia as “appeasement.”

Matthew Yglesias asks of Kagan’s World War II analogy: “If we launch a war with Russia — which would seem to be the point of busting out the analogy — then how are we going to find the time to launch wars with Iran and China?”


This is insane policy by the Americans, literally insane, Bush is endangering every European by his false flag operations using an Israeli trained Georgian military.

More fool Georgia for being such a puppet to the Neo Cons.

US Vice President Dick Cheney has threatened Russia after the country was forced to reply Georgia’s attack on South Ossetia’s region.

In a phone conversation with Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili on Sunday, Cheney said Russia’s military actions in Georgia ‘must not go unanswered’.

Continuation of Russian attack ‘would have serious consequences for its relations with the United States, as well as the broader international community,’ Cheney’s press secretary, Lee Ann McBride, quoted him as telling Saakashvili.

“The vice president expressed the United States’ solidarity with the Georgian people and their democratically elected government in the face of this threat to Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” McBride said.

Earlier, Chairman of Russia’s State Duma Security Committee Vladimir Vasilyev announced that US helped Georgia start military operation in South Ossetia.

“The further the situation unfolds, the more the world will understand that Georgia would never be able to do all this without America,” said Vasilyev.
