Now ten years on, the Russo-Georgian War that began on this day in 2008 is one of the most lopsided but nevertheless important geopolitical events of the last 20 years. And all fingers point to the usurping Zionist entity as being the prime mover and shaker behind the bloodshed–despite such an awful few analysts and commentators digging deep enough to find the evidence. Before tackling the battle itself however, a note needs to be made about just how the ground became fertile for conflict and it can be done in three words: The Rose Revolution. A destabilization operation bankrolled and pushed through by George Soros through his Open Society Foundation, Peter Ackerman through CANVAS, Peter Lewis, a frequent coreligionist partner of the first two regime-change-obsessed Zionists, USAID, the NDI, the NED and bloodthirsty Iraq Genocide architect Paul Wolfowitz.

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin’s incredible poll numbers tell him he has the support of the public for the policy agenda he chooses. This makes both Putin and Russia feel confident.
For years Putin has made it abundantly clear in his speeches Russia is not happy with the global status quo. His address to the Federation Council this week is evidence of this. As far as Putin is concerned, the entire international system is rigged to Washington’s advantage. The very existence of the U.S. dollar ensures Washington and its closest allies will never allow a fair playing field. That said, Putin is not eager to see the current global system collapse.
