PM Putin criticises Mercenary West

"Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has said the West is mistaken about who the real aggressor is in the conflict with Georgia.

He accused the US in particular of cynical manipulation, and of bolstering the Georgian military by transporting their troops home from Iraq.

Imagine what the USA would do if at war with another country, a third party gave transport to it's enemies troops!"

And here's ex-US Treasury official Paul Craig Roberts' views on the mercenary West:

Georgia was part of Old Russia and the Soviet Union for two centuries. After Soviet communism collapsed, the US taxpayer funded neoconservative National Endowment for Democracy broke every agreement that President Reagan had made with Gorbachev and began using US taxpayers’ money to rig and purchase elections in former constituent parts of the Russian/Soviet empire.

The Endowment for Democracy purchased Georgia as a US colony. The affront to Russia was extreme, but at the time Russia was weak. Oligarchs with outside money had grabbed control over Russian resources, and Russia was in dire straits and could not resist American imperialism.

Putin corrected the situation for Russia.

Now using American weapons Georgia for reasons yet to be revealed has violated its own agreement with Russia and attacked South Ossetia, killing in the process Russian peacekeepers. Vladimir Vasilyev, chairman of the Russian State Duma Committee for Security told the press: “The things that were happening in Kosovo, the things that were happening in Iraq – we are now following the same path. The further the situation unfolds, the more the world will understand that Georgia would never be able to do all this without America.”


Yes, without America there would be no war in Ossetia and no war between Russia and its former constituent part.

Without America there would be no war in Afghanistan. No war in Iraq.

Without America there would not be 1.2 million dead Iraqis and 4 million displaced Iraqis. We have no idea of the toll on Afghan civilians, although women and children appear to be the prime targets of the US/NATO forces that are “bringing peace and freedom to Afghanistan.”

    I am optimistic about the ICC (International Criminal Court) involvement in this conflict.
    The key is that ICC prosecutes *individuals* who committed war crimes. *Someone* should have given orders to shell sleeping Tshinvali, right ?
    At the moment some news sources tell that Georgia filed a claim with the ICC. In fact, they filed a claim with the ICJ, not ICC; ICC haven't heard anything from them:


    ICC was strictly opposed by the US and Bush administration, and I doubt Georgians would file a claim with them.
