Welcome to this discussion forum

Armchair General has created this resource for those interested in following the conflict and learning more about what is going on. We have several sources to share, including the most obvious which is the members of this forum sharing their insights. We also have a very active Russian contingent, and you can read their point of view in our Russian sub-forum.

We have two newly published articles on our site which explain what is happening now and some of the background;

Recent news reports out of the Caucasus region may leave readers wondering what the fuss is all about. ACG Editor in Chief, Jerry Morelock (former Chief of Russia Branch on the Joint Staff in the Pentagon) offers his insight into the Republic of Georgia-South Ossetia- Russia conflict.

Some of the threads discussing this issue have become a bit heated. It might be a good time for a friendly reminder about forum etiquette.

South Ossetia, now long has there been a large population of ethic Russians there? Before or after the USSR forceful annexation of Georgia.

You're splitting hairs. You were saying that there were no Georgians in S. Ossetia. I provided with you 2 links to the contrary.

Now in regards to Stalin, believe what you want. Facts do not lie.

Get smart and all your going to get is bitch slapped. I ask a question. Getting answers is learning. If you don't know than answer then save your time. I guess next your going to claim that Russia (Imperial Russia) never attacked any of it's neighbors and the USSR was the best of neighbor.

The families were Georgian, weren't they. Blood is a better determiner of ethnicity than citizenship.

I could go to Russia today, apply to be a citizen and if accepted, it still wouldn't make me a Russian.

I disagree. What proof do you have of the "mixed" families?

Second my reference was not to religion, but, once again, to blood and where one was born.

You never qualified the statement with "citizens".
