Russia expands Georgia blitz

Georgia calls for cease-fire, Moscow says troops aren’t withdrawing

TBILISI, Georgia – Russia battled Georgian forces on land and sea, reports said late Sunday, despite a Georgian cease-fire offer and its claim to be withdrawing from South Ossetia, the separatist Georgian province battered by days of intense fighting.

Russia claimed to have sunk a Georgian boat that was trying to attack Russian vessels in the Black Sea, and Georgian officials said Russia sent tanks from South Ossetia into Georgia proper, heading toward a strategic city before being turned back.

Russian planes on Sunday twice bombed an area near the Georgian capital’s airport, officials said.

The violence appeared to show Russia’s determination to subdue diminutive, U.S.-backed Georgia, even at the risk of international reproach. Russia fended off a wave of international calls to observe Georgia’s cease-fire, saying it must first be assured that Georgian troops have indeed pulled back from South Ossetia.

Russia expands Georgia blitz

I know that Georgia is supposed to be our ally, I know we’re supposed to back our allies and support them in any way we possibly can and I fully expect that this is what the USA will do, but there IS a valuable lesson in military tactics and strategies at work here and George W. Bush needs to pay attention.

“We have made it clear to the Russians that if the disproportionate and dangerous escalation on the Russian side continues, that this will have a significant long-term impact on U.S.-Russian relations,” U.S. deputy national security adviser Jim Jeffrey told reporters.

Significant long-term impact?? OK, that’s a good thing, but Mr. Bush needs to understand, the Russians, right or wrong, are waging war the way war was meant to be waged.

You don’t WIN a war by playing tit for tat and patty-cakes, you WIN by using disproportionate force, and by using it often. You KILL as many of the enemy as you can possibly kill and you inflict as much damage on their infrastructure as you possibly can. That is the very nature of WAR, but to know that you must 1st BE a warrior, and our current leadership is anything but warrior like!

If Mr. Bush, or any future leader of this nation doesn’t have the BALLS to wage war in that manner, they have NO business being the President of the United States. And if our leadership is not prepared to use disproportionate force the next time WE go into battle, then we, as a nation of FREE people, are done for!

    The Bush Administraiton has been underestimating (or claiming to do so) Putin and his motives for over a year now. This is another in Vladimir’s steps to re-establish the unified Soviet Union. Take notes, it may not be “political” but rather economically motivated.

    StormWarning, anyone that thinks it’s NOT politically motivated isn’t nearly as *in the know* as they think they are…

    There is always a method to Russian madness, they have never gotten over the defeat that WE financed and orchestrated in Afghanistan, and they WILL do anything possible to draw us into some long term engagement, and my oh my, isn’t Afghanistan starting to look like the place??

    Georgia may be next, and anywhere else the Russian Bear can rear it’s head and rouse Islamic hatred against *The Great Satan*…

    Economics and politics are closely aligned. When it comes to Putin, he is power hungry, but he also sees the EU and its economic clout.

    Couldn’t agree more… The thing that really fries me is the bullshit, from OUR OWN people, about disproportionate force!

    Have we become SO politically correct, are we led by a bunch of half a faggot metrosexuals that have NO idea of how to wage war??

    I don’t know where this nation is headed, I know that under Bush it headed to hell in a hand-basket, and I know that under McLame or the Obamessiah it will get NO better, and that is the part that really pisses me off…

    We have no MEN WITH GUTS left, we have a bunch of whiny-assed crybabies that want everything in this world to be equal and fair…

    I think that concept has been tried, it’s called communism… And we have a socialist Dem trying to gain the Oval Office?? And a worn out OLD bastard that isn’t anywhere near being a REAL Republican and can’t even spell Conservative??

    Leadership of this nation has gone down the shitter, and I see nothing on the horizon that can rectify that other than the REAL Conservatives of this nation standing up as one and taking America back…

    For damn sure we can’t do ANY worse than the Dems and Dem Lites, uh, oops, sorry, the Repubs have done…

    Conservative talk about how wonderful it would be to have a Reagan again?? I’d be happy with another Kennedy, John F. Kennedy that is, he may have been a Dem but he had BALLS and he was a WARRIOR…

    Start with the premise that war has changed. We have the conventional type wars like in the Balkans, Iraq and now in Georgia. Then, we have the War vs al Qaeda and its clones and spin-offs.

    With conventional war, we’re pretty good at it. But right now, as I see it, the guys doing the leading haven;t got a clue about the ways in which to foght both at the same time.

    There is no question that Obama hasn’t got a clue and we’ll all be in deep do-do with him as Prez. McCain on the otherhand, I believe, is one of those who doesn’t know how to fight and strategize right now. We can only hope that he wins, and that when he does win, he’ll sprout the balls that are needed to fight the unconventional war too.

    BTW, and again, you don’t have to be a conservative to be a Republican. It wouldn’t be so bad if the Democrats had nominated someone palatable to more people. And as you noted last week, we’re all in trouble because of what’s happening down “south.”

    I know people that are seriously Conservative and registered Dems, I also know folks that are seriously Conservative and are registered Repubs, and there’s guys like me, seriously Conservative and VERY Independent..

    Conservatives come in all shapes, sizes, flavors and colors, and being a CONSERVATIVE takes precedence over being a member of ANY party, and that’s what it’s all about…

    God help the Dems and Dem Lite if the REAL Conservatives ever figure out how bad the DNC and RNC are raping them and we band together and destroy BOTH of those antiquated old relics…

    Proportionate is a word for those who plan to lose. Those who want to negotiate how much they have to lose in order to put an end to the conflict. Winners talk about taking and doing, not giving and protecting.

    Your right Fred we are in serious trouble.

    To the IDIOT that claims WE are supporting *thugs* and their running of Georgia: Your comment and membership has been denied… Learn to READ and comprehend you idiot, I wasn’t *supporting* anything other than the way Russia goes about conducting combat operations…

    And ANY asshat that comes in here jumping in the middle of ME or my regular readers, especially on their 1st, and what turned out to be LAST visit, needs to read the Comments Policy 1st…

    There’s no PC crap for the Russians when it comes to waging war. If Bush would have done likewise in Iraq, the thing would have been over with a long time ago.

    You’ve got to miss the Soviet Union. During the Cold War of the 70′s and 80′s we were in relative peace. Oh, there were a few skirmishes here and there but both us and the Soviets kept everybody in line due to mutually feared destruction. It was like two big kids on the same block. Each one stood across the street waving their fists at each other but neither really wanted to fight the other. Now, each big kid had minor “gang” members who would get into fights and then the big kids would pull their minions back and put them in line.
