Russian Barbarians Sack Gori

And you thought the war was over. Not content with purposefully bombing civilians the barbarians unleashed on the Georgian people by the Kremlin have begun the systematic rape of the tiny nation with the sack of Gori:

Georgian Security Council Chief Alexander Lomaia said that the Russian military bombed Gori Wednesday morning and entered the city. The Russian military then let paramilitaries into Gori who started massive looting.

An AP reporter outside the city of Gori saw the convoy speeding past and heading south.

The accusation came less than 12 hours after Georgia’s president said he accepted a cease-fire plan brokered by France. The Russian president said that Russia was halting military action because Georgia had paid enough for its attack on South Ossetia, a separatist region along the Russian border with close ties to Moscow.


In the west, Georgian troops acknowledged Wednesday they had completely pulled out of a small section of Abkhazia, a second separatist region — a development that leaves the entire area in the hands of the Russian-backed separatists.

A few dozen separatist fighters moved into Georgian territory on Wednesday, planting their flag on a bridge over the Inguri River.

“The border has been along this river for 1,000 years,” separatist official Ruslan Kishmaria told AP on Wednesday. He said Georgia would have to accept the new border and taunted the departed Georgian forces by saying they had received “American training in running away.”

Georgia’s Security Council chief Alexander Lomaia said that Russia had moved 50 tanks into Gori, a strategic town 15 miles from the border with South Ossetia, violating the new accord.

Russia’s deputy chief of General Staff Col.-Gen. Anatoly Nogovitsyn denied any tanks were in Gori. He said Russians went into the city to try to implement the truce with local Georgian officials but could not find any.

An APTN television crew in Gori saw some Russian armored vehicles Wednesday morning near a military base there. Puffs of smoke in the air indicated some military action.

An AP photographer saw several Russian troops and two armored vehicles on the northern outskirts of the city. His driver went further up the road and ran into Russian military volunteers, who warned that Russian forces would soon shell Gori. The two retreated south but no immediate shelling could be heard.

Seeing the weak western response to their provocations the Russians have decided to escalate their attacks, and are reportedly eyeing the Ukraine as their next target. Putin seems to be willing to push until America or Europe push back, and unfortunately for the world, Russian tanks will be getting airlifted into Canada before America meets the Russian threat head on.
