Georgian Aggression

BBC NEWS | Programmes | From Our Own Correspondent | Ossetia's connection to Scotland
For King Edward I of England, think President Mikhail Saakashvili of Georgia. He attempted back in August to regain control of the separatist-held territory of South Ossetia, but was beaten back by Russia, assisted by Ossetian volunteers who cast themselves as modern Bravehearts.
Oh right, so at the time and in the weeks after, it was Russian aggression, they were the invaders. But now time has passed and the political spotlight is on other things, it's safe to admit the truth!

Fucking BBC. Fucking news.

The Beeb was never very 'ooh, evil Russians' about the conflict though - they were my main news source and they made it pretty obvious (whilst obviously trying to be as impartial as possible) that Georgia started it. The newspapers were doing the big anti-Russia spinning.
