Another Opinion on Russia - Georgia and Europe

Victor David Hanson ..........

"The long-suffering Russian people resent the loss of global influence and empire, but not necessarily the Soviet Union and its gulags that once ensured such stature. The invasion restores a sense of Russian nationalism and power to its populace without the stink of Stalinism, and is indeed cloaked as a sort of humanitarian intervention on behalf of beleaguered Ossetians."

"Indeed, tired of European lectures, the Russians are now telling the world that soft power is, well, soft. Moscow doesn’t give a damn about the United Nations, the European Union, the World Court at the Hague, or any finger-pointing moralist from Geneva or London. Did anyone in Paris miss any sleep over the rubble of Grozny?"


Right ... and a h/t to !No Pasaran! for the link to VDH!

Hello from another middle-aged guy,

This whole Russia-Georgia affair is a purposely-orchestrated and easily-pierced theatrical production. How convenient is it that the Bush Administration trained and prepped Georgia and then (some...) US troops-trainers pull out just before they initiate an "apparent blunder" that the Russians have been ready and poised to respond to, for months. Remember, nothing of this scale can be pulled together quickly, and all sides have been watching each other, like hawks, for decades.

Remember, both sides have satellites and very well equipped spy agencies, so any assertion that anyone was surprised is laughable. It goes without saying that all sides in this strange little war have something up their sleeves that most people have no clues about. All the pieces were placed on the board before major world leaders went off to the Olympics, pretending to be surprised, and pretending to be mad at each other afterwards.

It is amazing how easily duped the sheeple of this world are. Keep them stupid and enslaved to money and they are easily herded to the slaughter. The poor people of Georgia and the soldiers on all sides of this and all wars are merely pawns to the whims of those slithering in the shadows. This little production has been planned for some time to coincide with the Olympics, but that was such a poor cover that it should be obvious that something else is afoot.

How convenient is it that the Olympics are on 8/8/08? The timing of 8/8/08 links this to the same gang that pulled off 9/11 (and many other events), with its blatantly obvious numerology. Contemplate Machiavelli and Mystery Babylon, since they both point to the same gangs of liars and their secret society cohorts.

Time to get a clue to help stop this evil gang, before its too late...

How convenient that people can create elaborate theories that allow them to avoid dealing with facts and reality?

While SSH makes some valid points about the nature of misinformation in regard to geopolitics and the Georgian situation .... just sticking to the facts is quite sufficient I think.

Occam's Razor ... the principle works.
