WAR IN THE CAUCASUS FOR THE CONTROL OF EURASIA:
AGAINST THE FASCISTIC AGGRESSION OF GEORGIA, THE USA AND NATO!
WITH THE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH OSSETIA AND RUSSIA!

 

At the time of the USSR, South Ossetia had the status of "autonomous region" within the SSR of Georgia. An autonomy granted by Stalin. In 1991, it proclaimed its independence towards Tbilissi after the suppression of its autonomy by the first Georgian president Zviad Gamsakhurdia. Tbilissi lost the control of the South Ossetian territory in 1992 following a fatal conflict, started, already, by Georgia only.  For 17 years, the South Ossetian Republic has been a reality!

In the night from August 7 to 8, the Georgian troops made intrusion on the territory of the republic of South Ossetia and subjected its capital, Tskhinvali, with shootings. Most of the city is destroyed. The South Ossetian authorities give a report on many civil victims, nearly 1.500. 

There are also deaths among the peacekeepers deployed in the zone of the conflict. Russia sent troops into South Ossetia  in order to push back the attack launched by Tbilissi. Russia had announced in the morning, by the voice of its Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, that it would counteract after the death of its soldiers in Tskhinvali. President Dmitry Medvedev as for him ensured that Russia would defend its "compatriots" of South Ossetia and promised to punish the persons in charge for the attacks.

Until this 7 August 2008, a contingent made up of three battalions (Russian, Georgian and Ossetian), strong of 500 men each maintained peace in the zone of the Ossetian-Georgian conflict. The body charged to regulate the conflict - Joint Committee of control - is co presided by Russia, Georgia, North Ossetia and South Ossetia.  For some time, the Georgian authorities questioned the format of the commission, with the support and at the instigation of the USA. The puppet and dictatorial Saakhasvili’s Georgian regime  – faked elections, opponents muzzled, exiled or assassinated - being only the Yankee Quisling of the South Caucasus. 

 

THE LOGIC OF WAR
OF THE SAAKHASVILI REGIME AT THE ORDERS OF NATO

Since long months, Georgia launched provocations on provocations: shootings with the rocket, the mortars on the Ossetian villages as also sniper shootings on the civil population and assaults of all natures against the Russian contingent of the force of multinational interposition

The government of the Republic of South Ossetia had however kept calm while refusing most of the time to counteract. South Ossetia had even agreed to discuss once again with Georgia on Friday August 8, on request of Tbilissi to pacify the situation for which it is however not responsible.

But Georgia had another idea in the lead: to launch its armed assault to invade Ossetia. A plan that it has prepared since many months. Today, the warnings of the government of South Ossetia concerning the preparations of war of Georgia take all their meanings. Today, the multiple Georgian provocations for several months against South Ossetia, Abkhazia and the Russian peacekeepers military have found their logical result wanted by Tbilissi: THE WAR! 

 

SAAKHASVILI: A FASCISTIC AND MILITARIST REGIME
TO OUTLAW FROM THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY

For several years, with the assistance of NATO and the money of the USA, Georgia had a massive stock of weapons, multiplied the provocations and prepared the war to take again by force the control of the republics of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. While striking the smallest of these republics, at the time when the whole world had its eyes turned towards Peking and the launch of the Olympic Games (and to the contempt of secular Olympic Truce), by using the blind and terrorist bombardment on Ossetian civil targets (as in Guernica and Rotterdam), the Saakhasvili regime shamefully imitated the methods of the Nazi Reich. And also those of its Master Bush in Iraq and Afghanistan. It will be noted that like formerly Hitler, Saakhasvili speaks about peace and prepares war. Exactly one hour before launching the bloody pack of his roughneck soldiers trained by Yankee and Israeli advisers against innocent Ossetian civilians, the little Georgian Hitler called for "parley" (sic). Such a psychopath is a permanent danger. For his neighbours as for his own people.  It is time to outlaw this fatal regime from the international Community.

As Russia claims it legitimately "The declarations of the Georgian leaders question the capacity of Georgia at being member of the international community ", the Russian Minister for Foreign Affairs Sergueï Lavrov declared, commenting on the recent events in South Ossetia "the fact that the Georgian president states himself determined to persevere is regrettable. All that is known with in background the Georgian flag but also the flag of the EU ", indicated the minister. According to Mr. Lavrov, the acts undertaken by the Georgian leaders against the South Ossetian people "question the intrinsic value of Georgia as a member of the international community and as a State ". 

 

THE WEAPON OF TERROR:
GEORGIA LEADS AN ETHNIC CLEANSING
AGAINST THE OSSETIAN PEOPLE

Within three kilometres from the Ossetian capital this 8 August, the noise of the passage of the planes and explosions was deafening, and one could see many dwellings in flames.

The Russian Minister for Foreign Affairs, Sergueï Lavrov, affirmed to have received reports making state of ethnic cleansing in villages of South Ossetia "We receive reports according to which a policy of ethnic cleansing is followed in villages of South Ossetia; the number of refugees increases, panic extends, people try to save their life ", he declared at the time of a televised intervention.

Marat Kulakhmetov, commandant of the Russian peace mission in Ossetia, declared that the Georgian bombardments "had almost destroyed" Tskhinvali. According to the South Ossetian press committee, the destruction in Tskhinvali is catastrophic. Civilians hide in basements. Whole streets are destroyed, the central hospital where operations were practised in the corridors is destroyed, and the local university is in flames, details the committee. 

Georgia launched the "scorched earth" policy by razing five Ossetian villages, declared also the representative of the South Ossetian authorities in Moscow, Dmitry Medoïev. "Five localities which were at the border with Georgia were entirely razed and are currently levelled under the caterpillars of the tanks ", he declared to the press. People could still be under the debris in Khetagurovo, Dmenissi, Muguti and in two other localities, but the South Ossetian authorities are unable to help them "the situation is within an ace of the humanitarian catastrophe ", deplored Mr. Medoïev. 

 

SAAKHASVILI SHOULD BE JUDGED
FOR WAR CRIMES!

Saakachvili must be prosecuted for these undeniable war crimes. As the South Ossetian Republic requires it legitimately. “Legal proceedings must be engaged, against the Georgian president Mikhaïl Saakachvili and his entourage", declared Dmitry Medoev, representative of the South Ossetian president in Russia during a press conference in Moscow "Today, Europe judges Radovan Karadzic, former leader of the Serbs of Bosnia to have allegedly given the order to bombard peaceful cities and agglomerations. Saakachvili adopted the same conduct: he orders to bombard peaceful villages", declared Medoev. 

 

STRATEGIC AREA, OLEODUCS AND OIL:
GEOPOLITICS OF THE CAUCASIAN CONFLICT

Georgia is located in the heart of the strategic area of the Caucasus, passage of significant pipelines and place of tensions between the Russian and Western influences.  It is today the epicentre of the "Big Game" between Russia  – hegemon of Eurasia and heart of true and free Europe  – and the USA supported by their colonial alliance of NATO. It is one of the principal faces for the domination of Eurasia, which orders in geopolitics that of the world.  Eternal conflict between the Earth (continental power) and the Sea (thalassocracy, commercial empire of the seas) that started 2.500 years ago between Rome and Carthage.

Fyodor Lukyanov, editor-in-chief of the magazine Rossiïa v globalnoï politike (Russia in the global politics), recalled for RIA Novosti the planetary issues of the Caucasian conflict and the perverse effects of the Kosovo Dossier  – where the USA and their servants of NATO and the EU proclaimed the unilateral independence of a Western protectorate -: "Why the situation around Georgia, more precisely around the two unresolved conflicts on its territory, has grown so markedly worse this year? Of course, the absence itself of a final status makes the situation explosive, and the coincidence of some not very significant circumstances is enough sometimes "to heat" a "cold" conflict. However, this time, they are changes of principle, which are the result of a fundamental process. Kosovo’s unilateral proclamation of independence from Serbia last February was the key role, which determined the evolution of the events. There may be endless disputes over whether this has created a legal precedent or not, but realpolitik takes its course regardless.

Moscow and quite a few other capitals considered the move a serious step toward the degradation of international law and the triumph of arbitrary approaches to the resolution of global problems.

 Nonetheless, Russia has chosen a course of compromise. Russia's leaders could not ignore what happened in the Balkans, but they chose not respond by recognizing Abkhazia and South Ossetia, even though they believe that after Kosovo was proclaimed independent they had every right to do so. Reluctant to complicate an already difficult situation, Russia is ready to continue recognizing Georgia's formal territorial integrity. But it has opted for fully-fledged relations with both of the breakaway territories. This approach is manifest in Moscow's decision to withdraw from sanctions against Abkhazia and the Russian president's April decree on practical aid to the residents of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Tbilisi understands that after Kosovo the prospect of restoring Georgia's territorial integrity has become even vaguer. If the status taking shape after Russia's move is accepted and everything is left as it is, it will soon be pointless to talk about re-integration even in theory. Abkhazia will become an element of an enormous economic project called "the Sochi Olympics." South Ossetia is already de facto a subsidized region of the Russian Federation. Tbilisi must show resolve if it wants to break this trend. It can make diplomatic initiatives, exert military pressure and attract the attention of its Western allies by escalating tensions.”

The whole with in background the race for the gas and oil reserves, one of the major stakes of the "Big Game", as recalled by LE TEMPS (Geneva, August 9, 2008): "The immense gas and oil reserves of the Caspian Sea increased the geostrategic importance of the Caucasus, again in the heart of a “big game”opposing Russia and the United States. In Transcaucasia former Soviet republics like Azerbaijan, emergent power thanks to its high contents in hydrocarbons, and Georgia approached the Westerners. The latter financed the construction of the pipeline BTC, which carries Azeri oil to the Mediterranean. A gas pipeline, Nabucco, is in project with, for Europeans, the idea to reduce their energy dependence with Russia. The American administration supports moreover the Georgian candidature for NATO. Azerbaijan, Moslem and Turkish-speaking, maintain close relations with Turkey, pillar of the southeastern side of the Atlantic Alliance. The Russians denounce "an encircling "… ".

 

NATO IS WAR!

“Georgia's leaders believe that closer relations with NATO and future membership in the bloc will help secure their territorial integrity. Washington shares this view”, analyzes also Fyodor Lukyanov.  The point of view of NATO is particularly perverse: " According to this logic, NATO's failure to welcome Georgia and Ukraine into a Membership Action Plan in April was a sign of weakness that prompted Russia to step up its actions toward "annexing" the territories. If Moscow is told in no uncertain terms that the decision will be made, this will ostensibly promote stabilization. ". But “Russia's position on this issue is just the opposite. The closer Georgia is to NATO, the more resolute steps Moscow will take toward recognizing the territories which Georgia no longer controls, because Tbilisi could see some of NATO's formal commitments as a chance to resolve the conflicts militarily. "

 

THE GEORGIAN AGGRESSION IS ALSO
A WAR "MADE IN THE USA"

The implication of the United States in the bloody Georgian aggression is obvious. As specifies the Russian deputy Vladimir Vassilyev, head of the committee for the Security of the Duma (Lower House of the Russian Parliament), "Georgia could not have launched a military campaign in South Ossetia without the participation of the United States. Georgia could not have made anything without the support of the United States ". According to him, in the course of the last years, the Georgian president Mikhaïl Saakachvili did everything to increase the military budget of the country "the country prepared with military actions ", underlined the Russian Member of Parliament. 

Russia wishes peace in the area and plans to continue its mission of peace in accordance with the commitments taken. For the moment, the main thing is not to fight against the aggression, but to restore peace in the area, the deputy concluded. 

An analysis shared by Fyodor Lukyanov: " The United States has been contributing to the tension. Six months before the end of his presidency, George W. Bush badly needs some international success, if he does not want to be remembered for a chain of failures. Approval of the Membership Action Plan (MAP) for Ukraine and Georgia (or at least one of them) at NATO's ministerial meeting next December is fast becoming his only chance to leave a tangible achievement. This is why Washington is being more vocal in its support for Georgia and bringing more pressure to bear on those of its European allies who question the wisdom of such a course. One example is the recent visit to Tbilisi by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Needless to say, Georgia perceives Washington's unequivocal position as a green light to take more active steps.”

 

THE POSITION OF THE  PCN-NCP:
TOTAL SUPPORT TO SOUTH OSSETIA FACING
THE AGGRESSION OF THE GEORGIAN FASCISTIC REGIME!

Our position is clear.

For several years we have actively supported the legitimate fight of the "republics from the cold" - South Ossetia, Abkhazia and Transdniester  – for their independence. For five decades, our Organization has been at the sides of all those who refuse the Yankee imperialism and NATO, and singularly in Eurasia of those who want to see replacing the false small "Europe" of Brussels and Strasbourg, prostituted to the USA and "braked" by NATO, by the true freed Europe from Vladivostok to Reykjavik.

When we hear France, which chairs the European Union, declaring that only negotiations " can make it possible to find a way out to this crisis " and " reiterates the attachment of France to the sovereignty and the territorial integrity of Georgia in its internationally recognized borders ", we want to vomit.

This France, which does not cease betraying the memory and the work of General de Gaulle, and which recognized the "independence of Kosovo" to the denial of the international law, is badly placed to give lessons to the Caucasus.

The “old” NATO countries deliver us their hypocrite declarations on their "concerns" and their "request of ending the hostilities and the resumption of the dialogue". The “new” NATO countries are not locked up in choosing their words with great care and declare their firm and whole support for the armed aggression policy of Saakachvili’s regime.  

In that, they faithfully speak out on behalf of Yankee Imperialism and its collaborators of the “E”U, which reverses the situation by accusing Russia of being the fire-raiser whereas they support Georgia, which bombards and attacks South Ossetia. The fire-raiser who shouts “fire”!

Let us note that the declarations of war of the Caucasus little-Hitler are done on a background of Georgian flag AND the one of the European Union… which does not find anything to say there. Revealing! No, their "Europe" is not and will never be ours!

NATO is the instrument of domination and occupation of the United States. NATO is the war! The United States via Georgia has just declared the war to Russia. And this declaration does not have anything excessive; it is about a simple report.

In a war, the bourgeois wait and hide. But the men and the women of honour engage and choose their camps.

We chose ours, without hesitation, we are with Russia for Eurasia, against the USA and NATO for greater Europe!
