That war was definitely uncalled for :X

I also distrust Putin because he seems to be pulling all the string's in Russia's government. He was president for two terms, appointing one of his colleagues Dmitri Medvedev for the position while Putin "demoted" himself to Prime Minister. But in most European countries, the Prime Minister is more powerful than the president (i.e. in Germany and Italy). So Putin set himself up for more.

Putin is extremely manipluative. Manipulative... that's it.
I don't know too much on the matter, but I know some things. Your point is very valid. As stated several times above, Medvedev is simply a puppet.
But to be fair to some innocent little Russians here, it's not necasarily (mispell) the people as it is the government. It's just like the U.S. and the war in Afghanistan. We pretty much sit by and watch.
But I'm just glad this stupid war with Georgia is over. At least, I think it is. Is it? ... goes to show how uneducated I am about the war... *strives to learn more*

Exactly. Putin is a con man, Medvedev is a puppet, and Russia is in for another downward spiral if things don't change when the elections come.

John McCain's words rang true when he said "I looked into the man's eyes and I saw a K, a G, and a B" about Putin. I support Obama, but still-

I feel really bad for the Russian people that just want freedom. Same with Ukraine and Belarus.

Some of the journalists in those countries over there are akin to heroes for me, risking their lives and their freedom to bring truth to the public.

hmm, America wants oil but doesnt want it from russia, one, they'll be dependant on Russia, which sees the US as untrustworthy and manipulative, and 2, the profit for russia will make them even stronger, not a good combination for USA.
so they try their best in different countries. Russia, is preventing that.

Europe, Nato and USA cant do much besides bitch about Russia, as they all are afraid of Russia and Russia knows this and takes advantage. Why do you think it hasn't fulfilled the things it said it would when it signed a contact with france?
Russia is not only the biggest country in the world, with the latest military equipment including nuclear weapons and missiles but it also is one of the main oil suppliers. Europe is afraid of loosing that oil supply so thats why they cant do much.
Russia is a very aggressive country, thats why Europe is afraid to displease it.

Russia has absolutely no freedom of speech and everything that is shown on TV there is controlled by the president aka puppet of putin.

Saakashvili is another complete idiot which needs to be thrown into jail for starting that war that Russia so desperately wanted and provoked! He is such a corrupt a**hole!

I wonder when things will start getting better and when Georgia will finally have a president as well as parliament which TRULY cares about its people and start ACTING for the better for their country rather than only think about themselves and their pockets!!!

Well, it seems that you are politically retarded then, you're a female after all.

So ok, please tell me: why would Russia want war with a country she couldn't be arsed about ? You weren't and will never be a threat to Russia in any way: political, military, financially. Nothing, never been, never will be. Why would a lion eat a pussy cat ?

Think about it, you're just talking a bunch of non-sense bullshit and propaganda. And check the facts, check the American news, there is not 1 mention of Georgian agression. Check the other facts: the UN agreed that Georgia provoked it and was agressive in the first place.

So, what was Putin supposed to do ? Fire back with a slingshot ? You're full of shit and you know it.

and you are a brainless male who knows next to nothing about the countries or anything what the war represented.

If Russia wasnt 'arsed' then its troops wouldnt have entered Georgian land and handed out Russain passports to the Osetians and claim that it was 'defending its citisens' and take the land from Georgia.
Russian thinking is simple 'if you are not with us then you are against us'. Georgia chose America over Russia. Russia didnt like it or the fact that America was helping Georgia so Russia wanted revenge.

Thats why you are an idiot lol its not about 'threat to Russia in any way: political, military, financially. Nothing, never been, never will be. Why would a lion eat a pussy cat ?'
because Russia is a very strong country.
Its about 'advantages' and pissing off America. The cold war never ended between America and Russia doesn't matter how much they deny it cause it shows, and the Georgian situation was one of the examples. Its like a child's game.

I know what the Americans and UN have said i dont narrow my information gathering to only a couple of sources as you do.
Georgia has STARTED the war but Russia PROVOKED it and was ready for it way before and there were evidence of that.

What happened is exactly what i expected Putin to do, he didnt hold back even tho knowing exactly how crappy Georgia's military is, its like comparing a cave man's stick to desert eagle gun. there's no comparison. it was slaughter. that's why Russia was called aggressive.

I really shouldn't have carried on this debate after the second comment you have made to my first post cause as i have suspected you know shit, rude and debating with you is a waste of time.
dont expect a reply after this.

You're from the UK, my dear female... like that means some shit ? It doesn't matter what gender you are when you're discussing serious issues.

How can I read between the lines in what _MEDIA_ says ? Media is bullshit. And even _IF_ I got that stuff from people I know, that's still a better source than anything you've got. Now YOU tell me, how the fuck were you informed about the conflict if it wasn't for the media ?

oh really? so just cause on my DA page it says i live in UK you assume that im English and dont know anything how the media is controlled by the president in Georgia?

The media is controlled by the president so most of what you hear is bull and everyone knows that so its easy to read between the lines about the real truth in their words. I watch and listen to Georgian 'talks' when the opposition party discuss the situation. I also watch Russian news. I know people directly and indirectly who were in the war, or the villages that they had to flee from and saw the real horrors.

Is that enough for you?
Or are you going to be foolish enough to continue this debate which you have lost from the beginning?

Well, I can't really understand most of you people...Are you acting out of surprise, anger or god damn hypocrisy.
The Georgians started it. Its a fact. It is also a fact that they did so by attacking Cinkhvali with MLRS, and opening fire on russian peacekeepers. Especially the last one, georgian peacekeepers attacking the russian ones, is a war crime. Then they got what they rightfully deserved for being inexcusably stupid.
From this moment on, honestly please tell me - do you really think Russia would have stood down? Is there a single sane person who expected a different reaction?
What Russia did, is that it got a carte blanc and then used it. Its as simple as that! When you live next doors to one of the strongest states on the planet, like it or not you must always consider its interests. What would happen if, say Cuba declared war on the USA and killed a few US citizens? There won't be a single building standing in a few hours. I am even surprised that the russians stopped before Tbilisi, instead of dragging Saakashvili to the gallows, because such criminal idiocy deserves nothing less!

Your thinking is as rotten as Russian Jiguli &i can tell you, that everything you know, is false, i saw everything, i was in that war, my friends were wounded & some are still in hospital, and why is that so? To tell the truth, i don't like our policy, but i know that we didn't start this war.. it's not about 7th august, it begun much earlier and Russian foreign policy is bloody and they are still grabbing peaceful peoples homes.. maybe you've watched Russian TV too much and thats why you believe that we are guilty and it's our fault, but once again i'm tellin you, THATS NOT TRUE! and please, stop writing such foolish things!

Actually, I don't watch TV at all.

Yes - its not about 7th of August, nor about 1992 when it all started. That's just facts that were present for the russians to use, and of course, they did. Not saying they are innocent - like all great powers Russia has a lot of blood on its hands. But here and now, in the present situation, they are less guilty than you are.

I don't think you get it. You are guilty above all, of stupidity. You attacked russian citizens and peacekeepers without warning, OR were baited to attack - it doesn't really matter actually. What the hell was your leadership thinking? That doesn't matter either. If you stand up and shout "Come and hit me!" don't feel surprised when you get hit.

By the way, the very course of the war suggest that Georgia started it, but thats another matter.

Georgia, we are with YOU!! For us, people from Poland, this situation is clear. When one part of Georgia want to separate, it is natural that Georgia can send there the army. Russia want to defend rebeld provinces only for take charge in this region of the world and close the way for oil to European Union. Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia do everything we can to stop this war. But Russia is no afraid of anything. They use bombs which are prohibited by international conventions and kill civil people. Poland remember situation from 1939. Then we have alliance with France and United Kingdom but when Germany attack us, they did nothing, they was waiting so long, and when they woke up, Germans were already in Paris. Countries from Easter Europe know what means dying when you are still waiting for help and what means political depending on Russia for 50 years. That's why our president go to Georgia and our foreign minister try to force EU and ONZ to act.

Ahh, but you forget that the French did not stand by when Poland was invaded, for they sent a flock of sheep into a German minefield, thus France invaded Germany early in the war. They needed all of their men to defend a wall that was easy to just march around.

On a serious note, I wish for Georgian solidarity.

That's right, Poles and other peoples of Eastern Europe know what it means to live under occupation by Russia and the Georgians do not want that. Georgia - is a modern "Prague Spring" of 1968.
