Victory is complete in South Ossetia
President Dmitry Medvedev has just ordered an end to all Russian military operations in Georgia. His troops have been ordered to hold their positions and only to open fire if fired upon.
The Georgians will still claim of course that Russia is advancing into their territory, but with luck the western TV crews will soon be able to travel about and that final lie will be nailed. Nobody will go to the aid of the gang of adventurers who control Georgia and any hope that the country had of recovering South Ossetia has now clearly gone up in smoke.
Shall we allow ourselves a small gloat? Oh, let's do. . . Afghanistan, Iraq and now South Ossetia: globalised capitalism is getting shagged just about everywhere. As for me, I haven't enjoyed myself so much since the night the Brighton Bomb went off.
Right, I only got up to have a slash, so it's back to bed for me!
Note: This post marks the end of the first South Ossetia Conflict archive. If you want to read more about the conflict, please click on this link to go to the South Ossetia Conflict 02 archive. I have to archive postings this way as Blogger only allows twenty posts under one label.
