Georgia attacks South Ossetia

Recommended Posts

Are the Russians going to pillage their lands and violate their personal space and steal their cattle and women?  I just don't understand what they are attempting to do ... they did a piss poor job of attempting to cook up an excuse for this action. 

 

 

Its a land grab, that simple. South Ossetia is inside the internationally recognized territory of Georgia. South Ossetia also held an independence referendum to remain a 'de facto' independent state. From Georgia and Russia. Here Wiki for the less inclined. They are not recognized by one country, including Russia. Russia should not be meddling in the internal affairs of Georgia.

 

Nevermind last night's Georgian barrage and offensive was in response to rebel attacks.

 

Russia used this as no more than a excuse. Peacekeeping my ass. You don't send a tank brigade on offensive maneuvers inside a sovereign country, nor do you launch preemptive airstrikes. They intend to take, and hold.

ATTENTION russian propoganda machine:  you need to get a story out; you look bad in the USA because it's being reported that you basically just invaded Georgia for no reason .... so get your ducks in order! sigh.gif

It only looks bad to the small percentage thjat actually care. I'm pretty sure the massese don't even care about this mainly because it has nothing to do with our country.

 

Now if Russia said " f*ck the USA if they try to get anymore involved we'll bomb them" then the masses will care. But 2 European countries fighting over an invasion doesn't peak much interest in most Americans

It's true, for some reason USA propaganda machine (CNN) acts as if hardly anything happened, but spends hours on end talking about the John Edwards' sex scandal. ((Thank you J. Edwards for distracting America from important news!))

 

This country apparently needs to wake up to world events and people need to pull their heads out of their own asses. I couldn't believe it when I read earlier that 1,400 people had been killed in one day (three more days and there will be more casualties than US lost after fighting in Iraq for 5 years!) - but we would never know it from watching the news.

 

Seriously, Russia could take over many more countries and most in USA wouldn't know/care - we're too busy fighting terrorism, following gay-elections and sex scandals, watching bullshat news, and getting fat. Even if USA wanted to stop them we couldn't do it w/out a draft.

That happens in places like Africa every day and that's not on the news much so why should it be any different with this story?

As I said before if America really wants to stick their noses in other countries problems go to Burma or South Africa or Zimbawe or places in Africa or Asia where mass genocides happen.

Well that's true, but usually the senseless killing is not being done by one of the world's superpowers. This is slightly different - people are getting killed senselessly (thats the same) - but the Russian army is doing it (not a bunch of bushmen). Seriously, if Georgia's actions were intended to prevoke such a conflict, then I really don't grasp their logic. Unless, they plan on stopping the Russians on their own then I'm stumped.

The Russians are pissed after they lost all that land after the USSR's collapse. If someone does not put that line in the sand somewhere, you are going to see a lot more of this.

 

What people seem to forget is, that Russia is the last of the European empires, the difference is that they are land based, and didn't take land overseas like the others.

No it's not being done by any super powers but it's being done by mad men who are killing thousands of innocent people daily. If that doesn't warrant one of the most powerful nations to go in and try to help these places where not only are living conditions horrible in almost evry place but children are being killed just because people have different views then why should America help a country who also has different views but just so happens to be rich in oil.

 

If Africa or certain places where genocides happen in Asia like Burma were rich in oil America would be there every day saying" We're trying to help stop genocide" when they're really there for the oil.

 

The US telling Russia to stop or something will happen is not going to mediate the problem. It's going to expand it. It might not blow up now or maybe not even in 5 years but when Russia becomes a super power again if they do then they won't forget certain situations or countries that they have problems wit.

I suggest the EU do it. The UN is obviously worthless. Seriously, how can the US be ready to fight in Iran if we have to worry about things like this. Many persons (Israel) will be angry if Iran builds nuclear weapons.

 

@Serg: Well I mostly agree ... our policy on stopping such killings does not look so great. And I don't think USA will do anything to Russia, except run our mouth.

 

Anyone - ???? - GEORGIA does not have any NUCLEAR WEAPONS from USSR days do they??? There's no chance that Georgia would do that is there??

Iran would be an absolute cake walk compared to Russia.

 

The question is, do we want to face Russia, or a country that has the power of the former USSR?

I'm sure this will go over well:

 

Fresh of the Press:

DZHAVA, Georgia - Russia dispatched an armored column into the breakaway enclave of South Ossetia on Friday after Georgia, a staunch U.S. ally, launched a surprise offensive to crush separatists. Witnesses said hundreds of civilians were killed. Fighting reportedly raged well into the night with Georgia's interior ministry saying early Saturday that warplanes attacked three Georgian military bases and key facilities for shipping oil to the West.

 

 

Oil for some reason fell 5 dollars today and NYSE went up 300 points ... but come next monday, the story looks like it will change... confused.gif

-----------------------

Also, I don't think any sane person wants to fight Russia, except perhaps .... Georgia.

Conflict might be drawn out.

Georgia-Russia conflict could be drawn out

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Conflict between Georgia and an increasingly assertive Russia has long been in the making and there is no certainty it will end quickly despite the enormous disparity of their forces.

 

Tensions exploded on Friday when Georgia tried to take back control of the rebel region of South Ossetia with tanks and rockets, and Russia sent forces to repel the assault. Fighting raged around South Ossetia's capital, Tskhinvali.

 

Conflicts between Georgia and South Ossetia and another breakaway republic, Abkhazia, began when the Soviet Union broke up almost two decades ago. Violence has flared occasionally, but signs have increasingly pointed to a major showdown.

 

The roots of the recent conflict are threefold, said analyst Svante Cornell, co-director of the Stockholm-based Institute for Security and Development Policy and an expert on Georgia.

 

"It boils down to Kosovo independence, NATO's Bucharest summit and possibly also Russian internal politics and the transfer of power," Cornell told Reuters by telephone.

 

In February, Russian diplomats said Kosovo's unilateral declaration of independence from Serbia would stir up strife in the Balkans and linked Kosovar status to separatist areas Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Western states backed Kosovo.

 

In Romania in April, NATO leaders made a vague pledge to invite ex-Soviet Georgia and Ukraine into the alliance at some future point. In response, then-president of Russia Vladimir Putin promised more support for Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

 

In May, Putin stepped down after two terms and his hand-picked successor Dmitry Medvedev was inaugurated president. Putin did not leave power though, and soon he was appointed prime minister and is still seen as the leader of the country.

 

Cornell said Russia has seized upon a moment to assert itself in South Ossetia when Europe is unwilling to anger at Moscow and the United States is distracted by domestic elections. He suggested Georgia had fallen into an Ossetian provocation.

 

"Irrespective of who triggered this recent action, the general direction of Russian policy is clear, which is: We are taking control of these territories, and we're not even pretending that we're not," Cornell said.

 

CHECKERBOARD

 

Unlike Abkhazia on the Black Sea coast, South Ossetia is not a wholly integral territory with congruent borders. Instead it is a checkerboard of villages and towns in the foothills of the Caucasus mountains, interspersed with islands of Georgia proper.

 

The majority of South Ossetia's 70,000 people are ethnically distinct from Georgians and look to Moscow rather than Tbilisi.

 

Most of the violent clashes in the region this year had been over nearby Abkhazia, with troop deployments, downings of drone airplanes and Russian warplane incursions into Georgian airspace all leading Tbilisi to say war was "very close".

 

When a muscular Georgian military response came on the heels of what Cornell and security analyst Pavel Felgenhauer both called Ossetian provocations, the logistical advantage Tbilisi enjoyed over Moscow in the fight became apparent.

 

"Turning the tide of a Georgian offensive would mean a massive invasion by Russian forces," said Felgenhauer.

 

"They would need to deploy crack Russian troops on the battlefield, and that does not guarantee victory over Georgia because you can't deploy much."

 

On paper, Russia has an overwhelming military advantage over Georgia. Russia has 140 million people compared to fewer than five million in Georgia.

 

But Georgia and South Ossetia have the fortifications of the Caucasus mountains to the north. As Russia has learned in Chechnya, it is not easy terrain to fight in.

 

Only one road runs south from Russia into South Ossetia. There are no military-capable airstrips and snows from October through May close the mountain passes.

 

Christopher Langton, defence analyst at the International Institute for Strategic Studies in Britain, said Russia did have the military capability, "to secure a corridor from Tskhinvali back through the Roki tunnel and to secure Tskhinvali itself."

 

But not everyone is convinced. Felgenhauer said Georgia's U.S.-trained army was stronger than many believed and had trained for just such a scenario.

 

"Massive Russian intervention would mean it's going to be a long war, a bloody war, with an unpredictable outcome, because Ossetia is geographically separated from Russia."

 

"It's a hell of a logistical nightmare to try and take and keep South Ossetia against a rather fine Georgian military," Felgenhauer said.

So Gerogia actually started this and people are saying Russia should stop and are the bad guys?

 

Russia should kick the sh*t out of Gerogia because they threw the 1st stone and started this. That makes no sense that any country should intervene between these 2 countries especially an ally of the country that started it and say Russia should do a cease fire.

Where do you get that? South Ossetia is a part of Georgia, and they responded to Ossetian provatcations.

 

Russia should have no say in the Internal affairs of Georgia.

Oh I had no clue South Osestia was part of Georgia.

 

Either way this is a battle between these 2 places so other countries getting involved makes no sense.

Well you dumb ass if you read any of my post I've made valid points and the only time I was off is when I replied to that last comment with the long article and then I announced myself in being wrong.

 

So why don't you shut the f*ck up and don't involve yourself in something that you aren't involved in. Unless you're his boyfrined or bodyguard I'm pretty sure this was between me and him.

Lol, to be honest, I think there's an equal chance any will win. Sure Russia got more troops and all those tanks, but as someone posted in pictures earlier, Georgia's military is much better equiped with the latest US M4's and other weapons - they even have those new digital camos but in green. I'm sure the same can be said about their other equipment, tanks etc... They were also trained by us especially for such a situation.

Russia's armed forces on the other hand are outfitted with aging AK's and old T72's. But they do have numbers on their side.

 

Most likely if this war continues, the best either side can hope for is a compromise - but after a long and bloody war, with more civilian than military casualties.

 

If they were wise, despite all that's happened, they'll try a cease-fire at least. I still have some faith in their politicians. And why the f*ck don't we bring Russia into NATO, talking about the Cold War being long over!

If we did, then maybe they wouldn't still be against us, our influence and allies!

 

I hope for the sake of the Osetians and everyone in the area this battle finishes before it really kicks of. I lost people I know in the Iraq civil war, and you cannot but generalise your hate and anger - which is horrible because you know it is wrong and feel guilty about it, but it remains, no matter how much you wnat reconciliation.

So for the sake of all remaining human, I hope this finishes as quickly as it started ASAP.

Lol, to be honest, I think there's an equal chance any will win. Sure Russia got more troops and all those tanks, but as someone posted in pictures earlier, Georgia's military is much better equiped with the latest US M4's and other weapons - they even have those new digital camos but in green. I'm sure the same can be said about their other equipment, tanks etc... They were also trained by us especially for such a situation.

Russia's armed forces on the other hand are outfitted with aging AK's and old T72's. But they do have numbers on their side.

 

 

Don't forget, the Georgian military is US trained.

 

The Russians simply can't use numbers to their advantage.

 

There is only ONE major road into South Ossetia from Russia, not to mention it is very mountainous. And closed to part of the year.

 

Here from the story I pointed out.

 

 

"Turning the tide of a Georgian offensive would mean a massive invasion by Russian forces," said Felgenhauer.

 

"They would need to deploy crack Russian troops on the battlefield, and that does not guarantee victory over Georgia because you can't deploy much."

 

On paper, Russia has an overwhelming military advantage over Georgia. Russia has 140 million people compared to fewer than five million in Georgia.

 

But Georgia and South Ossetia have the fortifications of the Caucasus mountains to the north. As Russia has learned in Chechnya, it is not easy terrain to fight in.

 

Only one road runs south from Russia into South Ossetia. There are no military-capable airstrips and snows from October through May close the mountain passes.

 

Christopher Langton, defence analyst at the International Institute for Strategic Studies in Britain, said Russia did have the military capability, "to secure a corridor from Tskhinvali back through the Roki tunnel and to secure Tskhinvali itself."

 

But not everyone is convinced. Felgenhauer said Georgia's U.S.-trained army was stronger than many believed and had trained for just such a scenario.

 

"Massive Russian intervention would mean it's going to be a long war, a bloody war, with an unpredictable outcome, because Ossetia is geographically separated from Russia."

 

"It's a hell of a logistical nightmare to try and take and keep South Ossetia against a rather fine Georgian military," Felgenhauer said.

Where do you get that? South Ossetia is a part of Georgia, and they responded to Ossetian provatcations.

 

Russia should have no say in the Internal affairs of Georgia.

Erm... 90% of population of South Ossetia holds Russian Citizenship. These people were being slaughtered by the artillery strikes and these things. Georgia military didn't just go into the city and met resistance. They started bombing the sh*t out of the city before they even moved the troops in. That's not attacking separatist groups. That's slaughtering general population.

 

Russian Federation is required to protect its citizens, both by Russian and International laws. Russia had full rights to send the army into South Ossetia.

So why did they vote independent from both Georgia and Russia? Not to mention South Ossetia broke away from Georgia and are within their internationally recognized territory. And not one country recognizes South Ossetia as a sovereign nation, not even Russia.

 

The Georgian attack was in response to Ossetian separatists attacks over the last couple weeks. (Not to mention the tit for tat attacks over the last couple years.) Georgia has every right to respond in kind.
