For the last two weeks, we had all gotten used to the American, and some other media bias in their reports about the state of South Ossetia. There is no need to describe all the false information spread by the western media in the past couple of weeks; however, it is undeniable that it was widely condemned by the civilians of South Ossetia. A single fact can tell you everything: during the first three days of the war, when major war crimes were being committed towards Ossetian civilians, there were no western journalists located on South Ossetian territory; they all were covering the war from the Georgian side.
At midnight on August 7th to the 8th, the most feared and anticipated (by both Ossetians and Georgian civilians) took place in South Ossetia. Only a few hours after the Georgian President, Mikhael Saakashvili, officially announced that all fire would be seized in the name of the Olympics and world peace, Georgian troops began a wide spread attack on all of South Ossetia. The Georgian troops concentrated their forces on the capital city Tskhinvali, using all possible forms of force (including warplanes, tanks, mortar rockets “GRAD” and artillery) to fire at innocent civilians in apartment complexes and suburban areas.
The Georgian government has made their point clear- To teach Ossetains a lesson and to force them to leave the de facto independent Republic of South Ossetian. The chauvinistic Georgian government claims that they are a democratic country and that they represent freedom, but have in reality proceeded to start a bloody genocide on innocent Ossetian children, woman and elderly civilians. On top of this, innocent Georgian citizens of the surrounding villages have found themselves in the middle of all this crossfire and are being hostages of their own government.
