Russia and Georgia

While the Olympics are touting themselves as harbingers of unity, Russia rolled into and is right now rolling over Georgia.

I found some information form Pravda that was interesting as long as you can get past their “Russia has and will be the bearers of peace and unity” nonsense, they had this little tidbit:

“…Also noteworthy is the fact that Georgian tanks and infantry were being aided by Israeli advisors, a true indicator that this conflict was instigated by outside forces.”

The implication being that if Israel was involved, and we have no idea if that is true or not, Russia can’t control themselves and must attack. Not very confidence inspiring is it?

What I have not heard mentioned in any news reports is the fact that South Ossetia as a region are Orthodox Christians. I don’t believe this is a coincidence. Under Putin, the iron curtain is coming down again and religion will again be on the way out.
