Photo Gallery of the Russian Invasion of Georgia

Soon I am going to post a list of links to various commentary on the Russian invasion of Georgia, but given that so much of the coverage is vastly inaccurate, perhaps these photos do the best job of communicating the terrible developments happening there. The situation, in my opinion, should no longer be tolerated by Europe and the United States, and intervention must happen immediately. Foot dragging is just not acceptable in this case, and let’s hope that everyone remembers that stability in the Caucasus is a mutual interest for all parties involved. russiageorgiawar1.jpg Russian soldiers atop their armoured personnel carrier roll through the South Ossetian settlement of Dzhava August 10, 2008.

A Russian warplane dropped a bomb on an apartment block in the Georgian town of Gori on Saturday, killing at least 5 people, a Reuters reporter said. The bomb hit the five-story building in Gori close to Georgia’s embattled breakaway province of South Ossetia when Russian warplanes carried out a raid against military targets around the town.(David Mdzinarishvili/Reuters)
