Ten years since Georgia attacked South Ossetia and Russia: The Truth about Olympic War 08.08.08 & Russia’s New Army
Wednesday, August 8, 2018, marks exactly a decade since the infamous war of 08.08.08. when Georgian leader Saakashvili, armed by the US and prodded personally by US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, shook world politics and ushered in a new era of antagonism between Russia and the West. The lies about that war continue to abound in Georgia and the West. The truth in this video.
The shock of that event created a pre-destined Earth Shifting consequence: it woke up Russia the Great Balancer and forced Russians to re-organize the army to respond to new challenges. In 2008 the Russian army was forced to defend Tskhinval against the much better prepared and US trained/equipped Georgian army. It was not an easy victory by any measure, but within 5 days the Russian peacekeeping mission was over, just short of entering the Georgian capital Tbilisi and deposing Saakashvili.
That event reminded Russians not to trust the West and to always be prepared. Russians never looked back. The Russian army we see today, the army that delivered victory in Syria, and the one from 2008 are two completely very different armies and that difference is staggering. Russian Army is stronger than ever. By trying to provoke Russian through Georgia, the US created a self-fulfilling prophecy.
That 5-day war was also called the ‘Olympic War.’ It was a precursor and in many ways, a warning of what was to come in Ukraine. The reason the Ukraine Maidan and coup in 2014 were orchestrated so deviously was in part due to the fact that after the Georgia war fiasco the US realized it couldn’t weaken Russia head on.
