Victory seems complete in South Ossetia
All that is left of Georgia's South Ossetian adventure is the wreckage of her armour. The people of the territory must now count the human cost of anything up to 2,000 dead and roughly 34,000 living rough across the border in Russia. That is about half the pre-war population, by the way.
In spite of all claims to the contrary, the Russians have not attacked Georgia, and with luck, the war is now over. Both sides will sneer at each other for decades to come, but the slaughter of the past few days seems to be over.
The apologists for globalist expansionism will now start muddying the waters with a barrage of lies about what happened over the past few days. We need to be ready to counter those lies with the truth, and the simple truth is that they fucking lost.
