Russian tanks roll towards Tbilisi – 14 August 2008

Georgia says Russia has violated an EU-brokered ceasefire after a Russian military convoy rolled into the central town of Gori.

And without warning the armoured personnel carriers later moved on towards the Georgian capital of Tbilisi, as Al Jazeera’s Alan Fisher reports.

  3. Greetings D.S. and all,

    This war is a bigger mistake than most people realize. The arrogant fools on all sides of this smelly affair have fallen head-long into a trap. Read the referenced material and then hold their feet to the fire !!! Now we finally have the slimy deceivers where we want them, hence a few short steps from jail.

    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 the leaders on 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.

    Time to get a clue, before its too late…
