The situation in Georgia was, during the Olympics, Russian forces began doing military “drills” along Georgia’s border, and about the same time alleged S.O. Separatists started shooting rockets at Georgian cities, thus leading to a response. More than likely, the rocket-men were Russian Spetsnaz.
I recall seeing the photos of dead Georgians chopped to pieces from what was probably helicopter fire. Big holes in them, top halves of body separated from bottom halves, with the top halfs off some 10 or so yards.
yeah... uh.... well... just watch this.
That’s a very misleading account of what happened. Georgia attacked South Ossetia in a full scale, pre-planned operation with the goal of seizing the whole territory. The idea that Georgia attacked SO spontaneously in response to some provocation is false.
