During course of my monday morning reading I found a few interesting articles and videos that shed some light in a different view with the whole political unrest between Georgia/Russia.

Here is the Main story...

Then a video at the end of the document

With all the media relanting that "Russia" has "invaded" this country, has the American Government forgot the pass 7 years of the 21st century?

Maybe this was justified after all and our media is to blame once again.

Any ideas, comments or other news that supports this?

Just because the Western Media lies, doesnt mean any other media is any better.

Russian media is just as bad im afraid.

Its propaganda on both sides, to drum up a war, so they can go shoot people and blow stuff up.
Both sides are guilty of this.

Thats how I view both Western + Russian media. Liars. Warmongers. etc

Thanks for listening

Rings true.

Though I am not saying one side is better in this situation I am suggesting that this whole, world news source and media frenzy has gotten the better of humanity, without doubt in my mind. I believe that the situaiton proves to be very problematic in that if everyone lies, and everyone tries to make themselve look like the savor or the "country in the right" then actually who is right?

evetually something has to give.....but what?

South Ossetia is part of Russia. Georgia is not, and Georgia attacked South Ossetia. Russia had every right to intervene. The US is only bitching because Georgia is the US's toe in the door for the oil pipeline that runs through that part of the world. Everyone has a right to defense when they are attacked without provocation. Simple as that. South Ossetia did not provoke Georgia.
