Now, 3 months after “we were all Georgians” according to McCain, and our press completely distorted the events of the short Russian/Georgian war… just today, finally, THREE WHOLE MONTHS AFTER CHEERING FOR THE “GEORGIAN UNDERDOG”, being beaten up by the big Russian bully, our amazingly propoganda driven press has finally come out with an article on the front page of the New York Times, doubting the official Georgian version of fighting a defensive war, and suggesting that Saakashvili may actually be a mass murderer, killing unarmed civilians in their sleep in South Ossetia on August 7, 2008.
Three months later. Unbelievable. Truly we live in an Orwellian world.
Newly available accounts by independent military observers of the beginning of the war between Georgia and Russia this summer call into question the longstanding Georgian assertion that it was acting defensively against separatist and Russian aggression.
Instead, the accounts suggest that Georgia’s inexperienced military attacked the isolated separatist capital of Tskhinvali on Aug. 7 with indiscriminate artillery and rocket fire, exposing civilians, Russian peacekeepers and unarmed monitors to harm.
