War: Russia invades Georgia

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/new...cle4486208.ece

Russia sent troops and dozens of tanks into the breakaway Georgian province of South Ossetia today, throwing the two former Soviet neighbours into a sudden yet undeclared state of war.

In the most serious regional crisis since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, at least 50 tanks – and possibly many more – rumbled through the Roki tunnel, which cuts through the Caucasus mountains separating South Ossetia from the Russian province of North Ossetia.

"One hundred and fifty Russian tanks, armoured personnel carriers and other vehicles have entered South Ossetia,” President Saakashvili of Georgia told reporters in Tbilisi. “This is a clear intrusion on another country’s territory. We have Russian tanks on our territory, jets on our territory in broad daylight."

Mr Saakashvili added that Georgian forces had downed two Russian jet fighters over Georgian territory.

Georgia mobilised its reservists yesterday and launched a military offensive to regain control over South Ossetia, which broke away from Georgia after it gained independence.

Fighting raged today around the city of Tskhinvali, the South Ossetian capital, as Georgian troops backed by tanks and warplanes pounded separatist forces, who are mostly Russian citizens backed by Moscow. This afternoon as the Russian tanks rolled in, Georgian officials declared that they had secured the city.

“We cannot allow the deaths of our countrymen to go unpunished. The guilty parties will receive the punishment they deserve," President Medvedev of Russia told a meeting of his security council in the Kremlin. “I am obliged to protect the lives and dignity of Russian citizens, no matter where they are located.”

Mr Medvedev's predecessor, Vladimir Putin, now Prime Minister, warned on a visit to Beijing, where he had been due to attend the Olympic opening ceremony, that the Georgian action would bring "retaliatory measures".

South Ossetian officials said that much of Tskhinvali had been destroyed in the Georgian offensive. A Reuters correspondent some two miles from the city said that the roar of warplanes and the explosions of heavy shells was deafening and many houses were ablaze.

The area is of strategic importance, largely because of the BTC oil pipeline, which runs through central Georgia just south of the breakaway region. The pipeline – which features in the 1999 James Bond film The World is Not Enough – pumps around one per cent of global crude supplies from the Caspian to the Turkish port of Ceyhan for export to Western Europe but is already closed because of an attack in Turkey last week by the Kurdish separatist organisation PKK.

Mr Saakashvili, a US-educated lawyer who succeeded Eduard Shevardnadze in 2004 and has since tried to align it more closely to the West, compared the Russian action with the invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 and appealed to the outside world to intervene.

“Russia is fighting a war with us in our own territory," he told CNN as Russian armour rolled into South Ossetia.

“It’s not about Georgia anymore. It’s about America, its values: we are a freedom-loving nation that is right now under attack.”

Both Nato and the White House appealed for an end to the fighting as international diplomacy went into overdrive. The International Committee of the Red Cross called for the establishment of a "humanitarian corridor" through South Ossetia.

Tensions between Georgia and Russia have been rising over the last few months over the two breakaway republics of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

Georgia accuses Russia of fermenting trouble in both regions and supporting the separatist governments as a way to put pressure on Georgia and foil its attempts to join Nato. Russia has given out passports to a majority of South Ossetians and Abkhazians. The UN Security Council met to discuss the situation this morning but failed to agree on a Russian statement calling on both sides to renounce force.

The Russian envoy to the UN, Vitaliy Churkin, described Georgia's actions as "treacherous".

"The situation in the conflict zone has reached a dramatic line," he told the council. "Civilians, old people and children are under massive artillery shelling from Grad rocket systems, guns and large-calibre mortars."

If it were Atlanta being attacked, the city would be destroyed because Delta wouldn't be able to get any planes in the air for 3 or 4 more hours.

In my opinion, Russia is headed back to authoritarian government, and they intend to reclaim 'their' lost territory and restore it to what they perceive as the Soviet Union's former glory.

Just shut the fuck up and talk about the issue at hand. Jesus Christ.
