Following The Hague's recent dismissal of Georgia's bogus attempts to claim that it was attacked by Russia, the former Soviet Satellite now finds itself in the dock for war crimes. As many astute people tried to point out immediately after those events took place- that it was Georgia who attacked South Ossetia, nearly 3 months later, the mainstream media are finally running with the real story. And it seems that Georgia has committed some very horrible atrocities to boot.
The BBC's report merely scratches the surface of this debacle in Georgia, a country which has received nearly $5 Billion in US military aid since 2005 and counts no less than 500 US 'military advisors' in its country as well as 4 Israelis and 2 US citizens in its new cabinet. For "strategic reasons", Washington has been desperate to fast-track Georgia's membership into NATO. Go figure.
The BBC report describes how numerous eyewitnesses described Georgian tanks firing directly into an apartment block, and how civilians were shot at as they tried to escape the fighting.
"They went on firing all the next day without stopping. At some point there was a pause, and we saw Georgian soldiers going along the street in their Nato uniforms" said resident Taya Sitnik. Comically, Georgia's President Mikhail Saakashvili (former NYC lawyer) is trying a White House-style whistle stop PR tour through the US networks refuting all allegations of war crimes.
Naturally, the BBC's judicial coverage of Georgia's war crimes flies in the face of dozens, upon dozens of "expert" TV pundits, as well as the great US State Department (add to that list McCain, Palin, Obama & Biden who all included a swipe at Russia in their debates) who publically condemned Russia when there was plenty of intel available to the contrary.
This recent "official" revelation proves once again that the mainstream media are pretty hopeless when it comes to getting the truth out. And more frightening still, is the realization that mainline politicians will almost certainly follow whatever lines are being circulated around at any given time. To hell with the facts- we're living in the re-run world of the Twilight Zone. All too predictable.
