Georgia Lost Up to 3,000 Men in S. Ossetia Conflict - Source

September, 2008

About 3,000 Georgian military and police personnel were killed during its recent attempt to take control of South Ossetia, a Russian intelligence source said on Monday. Georgian troops attacked the breakaway republic on August 8, killing a number of Russian peacekeepers and hundreds of civilians. In response, Russia launched a five-day military operation to "force Georgia to accept peace." "Our data gathered from various sources indicates that Georgia lost up to 3,000 servicemen and police in the attack on South Ossetia," the source said, adding that Georgia's Western allies also were aware of numbers involved. "Georgia's leadership is attempting to cover up the real scale of the losses and is officially reporting about 70 confirmed deaths," he said. "But their figures are significantly understated." The source said Georgia suffered such heavy losses because of the poor training and low morale of its military personnel, especially reservists. "Besides, many Georgian soldiers, who are accounted for as MIA, are deserters," he added. "Georgian police are still looking for these people, who simply left the battlefield." Official statements last week put Russia's losses in the short conflict with Georgia at 66 killed and at least 340 wounded.

Britain Outraged by Lavrov’s English

Past weekend, a raft of Britain’s media accused Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov of using an expletive in the conversation with Britain's Foreign Secretary David Miliband. Lavrov is said to have sworn in the phone conversation with Miliband dedicated to Georgia. The RF Foreign Ministry denied the accusations. That English-language telephone conversation of Lavrov and Miliband happened August 13. According to The Daily Mail, Lavrov exploded when Miliband set to describing Britain’s attitude to Russia’s actions in Georgia. "Who the xxxx are you to lecture me?" Lavrov allegedly said. Of interest is that, according to The Daily Telegraph blog, Lavrov said: "Who are you to xxxxing lecture me?!" The bringdown rebuff blamed on Sergei Lavrov is in line with the context of current relations of Russia and Britain that aggravated beyond any limit past year, when the Kremlin ordered to shut down British Council’s offices in Russia and refused to cooperate in the case of Alexander Litvinenko. Britain’s standing on South Ossetia didn’t improve the relations either. Nevertheless, the RF Foreign Ministry denied such tirade of Lavrov, saying he is the diplomat of great experience, and his comments on foreign events are always well-formed. Lavrov explained swearing during the Sukhumi news conference. The minister claimed he repeated to Miliband the description of Georgia’s President Mikheil Saakashvili given by one of European leaders. “xxxxing lunatic” were the words that Lavrov quoted in an attempt to convince his British counterpart that it had been Saakashvili that had started the war for South Ossetia.

Dear reader,

Arevordi will be taking a sabbatical to tend to personal matters. New blog commentaries will henceforth be posted on an irregular basis. The comments board however will continue to be moderated on a regular basis.

The last 20 years or so has also helped me see Russia as the last front against scourges of Westernization, Globalism, American expansionism, Zionism, Islamic extremism and pan-Turkism. I have also come to see Russia as the last hope humanity has for the preservation of classical western civilization, Apostolic Christianity and the traditional nation-state. This realization compelled me to create this blog in 2010. Immediately, this blog became one of the very few voices in the vastness of cyberia that dared to preach about the dangers of Globalism and the Anglo-American-Jewish alliance, and the only voice preaching the strategic importance of Armenia remaining within Russia's orbit. From about 2010 to 2015 I did monthly, at times weekly, commentaries about Russian-Armenian relations and Eurasian geopolitics in general. It was very difficult as I had no assistance in this endeavor. The time I put into this blog therefore came at the expense of work and family. But a powerful feeling inside me urged me to keep going; and I did.

When Armenia finally joined the EEU and integrated its armed forces into Russia's military structures a couple of years ago, I finally felt a deep sense of satisfaction and relaxation, as if a very heavy burden was lifted off my shoulders. I finally felt that my personal mission was accomplished. I therefore felt I could take a step back, as I really needed the rest. Simply put: I have lived to see the institutionalization of Russian-Armenian alliance. Also, I feel more confident now that Armenians are collectively recognizing the strategic importance of Armenia's ties with Russia. Moreover, I feel satisfied knowing that, at least on a subatomic level, I had a hand in the outcome. As a result, I feel a strong sense of mission accomplished. I therefore no longer have the urge to continue as in the past. In other words, the motivational force that had propelled me in previous years has been gradually dissipating because I feel that this blog has lived to see the realization of its stated goal. Going forward, I do not want to write merely for the sake of writing. Also, I do not want to say something if I have nothing important to say. I feel like I have said everything I needed to say. Henceforth, I will post seasonal commentaries about topics I find important. I will however continue moderating the blog's comments section on a regular basis; ultimately because I'm interested in what my readers have to say and also because it's through readers here that I am at times made aware of interesting developments.

To limit clutter in the comments section, I kindly ask all participants of this blog to please keep comments coherent and strictly relevant to the featured topic of discussion. Moreover, please realize that when there are several anonymous visitors posting comments simultaneously, it becomes very confusing (not to mention extremely annoying) trying to figure out who is who and who said what.Therefore, if you are here to engage in conversation, make an observation, express an idea or simply attack me, I ask you to at least use a moniker to identify yourself. Moreover, please appreciate the fact that I have put an enormous amount of information into this blog. In my opinion, most of my blog commentaries and articles, some going back ten-plus years, are in varying degrees relevant to this day and will remain so for a long time to come. Articles in this blog can therefore be revisited by longtime readers and new comers alike. I therefore ask the reader to treat this blog as a depository of important information relating to Eurasian geopolitics, Russian-Armenian relations and humanity's historic fight against the evils of Globalism and Westernization.

Thank you as always for reading.
