A Two-Sided Descent Into Full-Scale War

E-mail Print PDF

Nine days ago, late in the afternoon of Aug. 7, Georgian tanks, artillery and infantry began moving out of bases in Georgia and toward South Ossetia, a zone long held by separatists who are backed by Moscow.

As the Georgian units approached the contested zone from the south, Russian army forces were massed just to its north, separated from it only by the 4,000-yard-long Roki Tunnel through the Caucasus Mountains. 


TVNL Comment: The US corporate media are reporting this conflict as an unprovoked invasion by the Russians. That is NOT what happened, but it IS something the US does very well.
