Olympics diversion? war between Russia and Georgia

War between Russia and Georgia orchestrated from USA

By Pravda

Russian officials believe that it was the USA that orchestrated the current conflict.
The chairman of the State Duma Committee for Security, Vladimir Vasilyev, believes
that the current conflict is South Ossetia is very reminiscent to the wars in Iraq
and Kosovo.

South Ossetia: Inside Georgia but dependent on Russia

By The Irish Times

A short history of the conflict in South Ossetia.

~:~ Yes, I watched a good bit of TV’s touted “spectacular opening ceremony” last evening from Beijing and saw the chummy schmoozing going on between George Bush and Vladimir Putin sitting oh-so-near one another, soulmates as they are.

Did either or both of them know of – or perhaps orchestrate – the destruction going on in Putin’s neck of the woods in ‘real time’….FROM their cellphones? Freakiness from a couple of cool customers who as usual, leave others to pay for their political machinations, if so.

Then Bush officially scolds (or pretends to) Russia on use of force – as if he’s not of the same ilk for illegally and pre-emptively invading Iraq! The mind reels at the hypocrisy…surely political thespians have the hypocrisy market cornered by now. 

Can’t you hear their conference call from the other day? “You know the Olympics opening ceremony would be a good time to smash them while the world looks the other way.”

Guess that’s the way of terror promoters the world over who’re always up to no good especially where the ‘common good’ can be crushed and discouraged.

“One World One Dream” my patootie. One dream of a one-world-government, more like.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
