Russia’s policy is not technically genocidal, as it does not seek to destroy Georgians as a race.Â Rather, it is a series of massacres, a campaign of targeting civilian people.Â This is in spite of Georgia’s focus on fighting on military personal.
GORI, Georgia â€” Russia and the former Soviet republic of Georgia veered closer to all-out war on Saturday as Russia moved parts of its Black Sea fleet toward Georgiaâ€™s coast and intensified air attacks on Georgia, striking two apartment buildings in the city of Gori and clogging roads out of the area with fleeing refugees.
Russia acknowledged that Georgian forces had shot down two Russian warplanes, while a senior Georgian official said the Georgians had destroyed 10 Russian jets. Russian armored vehicles continued to stream into South Ossetia, the pro-Russian region that won de facto autonomy from Georgia in the early 1990s.
Russia’s campaign of State Terror recalls their outrages in Afghanistan, Chechnya, and Finland.Â The same factors that make Russia a terrible neighbor and a threat to the Core also lead to their incompetently bloodly military operations: a focus on steadfastness, a history of authoritarianism, and an inability to promote the best to the top.
Russia should be rolled back.Â Back out of Georgia.Â Back out of Europe.Â Back out of an ability to matter.
