Georgia: No Withdrawal

Posted By Laughing_Wolf • [August 22, 2008]

Not much more can or needs to be said. The Russians are now saying that it may be the end of the month before they will pull out. Meantime, they continue digging in, clearing areas of inhabitants, robbing, raping, and otherwise doing things to punish the citizens of Georgia as well as the State. They control major roads and send patrols out over larger and larger areas. The world waits.

Pursuant to yesterday's post, here is an article worth a read. Not saying I agree with all of it, but there is a lot of data there for those that are serious about understanding the situation we face.

As always, here are links to sources of information. My thanks to all who are posting or sending new links, and as always be a critical consumer:
