Photo Report on Ossetia

I got this last August during the time I was not active on ACG, but just found it again and thought some might find it interesting. It's a series of annotated photos from Ossetia.

Good shots. Too bad you didn't get the pictures of the downed russian aircraft and the 20-30% of military vehicles that had to be towed behind each battalion. Funny thing. All of the 2000 trained Georgian soldiers were in Iraq helping us at the time...we flew them back immediately but so what? When Russia comes knocking with 30,000 troops and lots of firepower even New Jersey would fall.

Where do you get this 30,000 and firepower from?

Number of Russian contra Georgian troops here, aswell as equipment.

On Georgian Air-defences: http://mdb.cast.ru/mdb/3-2008/item3/article3/

Graphic is right... damn... those guys really love showing off pics of dead Georgians in "American style" uniforms.

Cute pic on the cover of that magazine, Putin and Achmydirtyjob shaking hands..."Bothers in Arm?".... fascinating.
And that was some twisted propaganda, they sure try hard to make anyone freindly to America look like the Devil Himself, but they have lots of practice at that.

So, what tiny country are they going to beat up next? Is Estonia going to be bombed because they don't throw politically correct parades.

Stop grumbling. There are plenty of pictures of poor dead Russian boys killed by everyone from Germans to Chetchens. Some pics of idiots who actually ate **** trying to kill them for once isn't so bad.

Although all death is saddening, especially of those Georgian bastards who died 100% in vain for Saakashvilly's folly.

Grumble? I'm more amused by the whole thing than anything else.

I really don't want to get into this, it's not really that interesting, but I just have to toss this out; Putin timed it so that his troops hit Georgia the day that the Olympics opened. Pretty slick, making sure the world's eyes were elsewhere on D-day. That was the day I started thinking of Putin as the Mussolini of out time.

And we air-lifted 2,000 Georgians home in just a couple of days, that must have raised some eyebrows in Moscow...
Do you think the Georgians will be more favorably disposed towards the Russia now, or the US?

Errki- thanks for those last pics, the cammo patterns on the Russian and America uniforms (older ones) are easy to confuse, so maybe some of the corpse pics were Russians? Or 2nd-line Militia from one side or another, thats what I was thinking.

Let me clear it up for you, Georgians attacked first and its Saaki who "timed" it, if any timing was done.
