The War in Georgia

A report by John S. Torell

 

Our television screens suddenly exploded with pictures and video clips of Russian tanks and soldiers invading the nation of Georgia this past week. Some people thought it was the state of Georgia here in the United States. Sadly, many people don’t even know there is a nation called Georgia, and if they do, they have no clue where it’s located. Let us begin with a brief historical background of this nation.

HISTORY

Around 400 B.C., the Georgian tribes were united to form the Kingdom of Georgia. The Roman Empire conquered the Caucasus region in 66 B.C. and Georgia became a Roman client state for the next 400 years. In 330 A.D., King Marian III converted to Christianity and this became the state religion.

Due to war between the East Roman Empire and Persia, the Georgian Kingdom fell apart and became a cluster of small kingdoms. When the Muslims began their conquest and started to war against all the nations in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, Georgia fell under the brutal boots of the Islamic invaders.

Prince Ashot I of the Bagrationi family began to reign in 813 A.D. and for the next 1,000 years this family would rule Georgia. Western and Eastern Georgia were united during the reign of Bagrat V (1027-1072). During the years of David IV (1099-1125), the Seljuk Turks were driven out of the kingdom and it was expanded southward into Armenia and eastward to the Caspian Sea.

The Khazar Empire just north of Georgia that existed during the 7th through the 11th centuries cannot be omitted. A part of Georgia was held by them, and since Judaism had become the state religion in this empire, Georgia also has a Jewish community dating back to this time. These Georgian Jews are not blood descendants of Abraham, but descendants to Gentiles who converted to Judaism in the eight century. They are also known as, “The Thirteenth Tribe.” However, the World Zionist Organization considers them full blooded Jews and most of them are loyal to the state of Israel. 

The Mongolian invasion in 1226 reached Georgia and the kingdom with its capital of Tblisi fell to the Mongols. As the Mongols eventually were defeated and driven out of the area, Georgia again fell into small serfdoms with local tribal leaders fighting for dominance. During the 16th century, Georgia was divided into an eastern province ruled by Persia and the western province ruled by the Ottoman Empire. Many rebellions took place with reprisals against the civilian population by the occupying forces. At one point the population in Georgia had been reduced to 250,000 persons. In 1747, the Georgian people started an uprising and were eventually able to kick out the oppressors and unite the kingdom once again under King Heraclius II in 1762.

THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING

In 1800 the Russians came south and claimed that King George XI had requested for Georgia to be annexed into Russia. This decree was finalized in 1801 and confirmed by Tsar Alexander I, on September 12, 1801. In the summer of 1805, Russian troops defeated the Persian Army and established control over Tblisi. During a war in 1810, the Russians established firm control over the Western portion of Georgia and a number of territories outside Georgia were added to the newly formed Georgian province. Some of the people living in these territories like Ossetia and Abkhazia are currently fighting to break loose from Georgia.

Georgia declared its independence when the Communist take over began in Russia 117 years later. A year later, in 1918, Georgia went to war with Armenia over a land dispute. Great Britain intervened with troops, and from 1918 to 1920, Georgia was under British protection.

It is interesting to note that during the years of 1918-1919, the Georgian general Giorgi Mazniashvili led Georgian troops in battles against the White Army of Russia, which was trying to fend off the communists.

In February 1921, Georgia was attacked by the Red Army and defeated. A puppet communist government was installed in Tblisi, with Filipp Makharadze, a Georgian Bolshevik at the head.

In 1924, the Georgian people revolted against the Communists and were brutally suppressed by the Soviet army. To ensure that there would be no further troubles for the Soviets, Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan were all lumped together as a new republic, which became known as Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic (SSR).

During World War II, 700,000 Georgian men were forced to serve in the Red Army. 350,000 of them died on the battlefront with Germany. Thousands of Georgian men hated the Soviet regime and enlisted with the Nazis to fight against the Russians.

From 1924 through 1991 Georgia suffered under the oppression of the Soviet Union until it collapsed and Georgia once again became independent.

THE BEGINNING OF INDEPENDENCE

A demonstration for freedom, like so many before it took place on April 9, 1989, in Tblisi but was brutally suppressed by Soviet troops and resulted in a number of dead civilians. Two years later, on April 9, prior to the collapse of the Soviet Union in November 1991, Georgia declared its independence but in a short time found itself embroiled in a bitter civil war that would last until 1995.

The first elected president of the independent Georgia was ousted in a coup in 1992. Order was not restored to Georgia until 1995, when the former Soviet Minister of Foreign Affairs under Gorbachev, Eduard Shevardnadze was elected president of Georgia. During the Soviet era, he had been the head of the communist party in Georgia and had held a number of government offices.

The Russian government under the leadership of Boris Yeltsin was unhappy with losing Georgia since the region was vital for future natural gas and oil transfers to the West. The Russian intelligence service, now renamed “Federal Security Service,” formerly known as the KGB, was used to foment trouble in two regions of Georgia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Both regions achieved some kind of independence from Georgia and Russian troops were stationed in the regions as peace keepers. 250,000 ethnic Georgians were forced by Russia and its national separatists to leave their homes in Abkhazia. The Russian government granted Russian citizenship to the people living in these two breakaway regions.

It is noteworthy to point out that Vladimir Putin, the former Russian president and current prime minister was a career KGB officer.

GEORGIA, A HOT PIECE OF REAL ESTATE

Our current civilization is based upon oil and natural gas, without these two components, any nation and its armed forces will come to a stand still.

Since the World Government encourages the existence of different power blocks like the United States, European Union, Russia and China, each government is constantly looking to secure enough oil and gas to run their respective nations. Let’s not forget the nation of Israel, the centerpiece in the World Government and the future ruler of a United World. Therefore, any nation that is valuable to any of these power blocks, can expect a presence of foreign intelligence services. This is what happened to Georgia after it broke loose from the Soviet Union. These intelligence services will work on several fronts, sending in agents to rally people for different causes, stir up trouble and eliminate any opposition.

The Western nations in the mid 1990’s, put together a plan to build a huge set of pipelines from oil and gas fields in former Soviet republics and route them through Georgia. There was a pipeline built in 1997-1998 that ended up in the Georgian seaport of Supsa in the Black Sea and another line that snaked through southern Georgia and through Turkey to the Mediterranean Sea. Thus, we are talking about several pipelines, some for natural gas and others for oil. They are operated by British Petroleum (BP).

The American government under the administrations of Bill Clinton and George W. Bush realized that it was important to keep the Russians out of Georgia and pull this republic into NATO and under Western control. The government of Israel also wanted a piece of the cake, but in order to control Georgia, the old Soviet Foreign Minister must be taken out of power. Shevardnadze had been re-elected for a second term in 2000, and as an old school Communist, he walked a tightrope between Russia and the West, but tilted more toward Russia.

ENTER GEORGE SOROS

George Soros is a Hungarian born Jew residing in the United States, one of the world’s wealthiest men and on-call for the Mossad (Israeli intelligence service). Over the years the Mossad has taken a number of European Jews and made them into billionaires and been able to use them for Jewish causes. Robert Maxwell (1923-1991) was another Hungarian Jew, who along with Rupert Murdoch, an Australian Jew, built media empires that serve the interests of Israel.

A young Georgian man was selected by the World Government to be the new president of Georgia. Mikheil Saakashvili was born in 1969 and received an education in Ukraine, France and the United States, where he attended Columbia University Law School in New York City where he met his wife Sandra who is from Holland.

In October 2000, he returned to Georgia with his family and was appointed justice minister by Shevardnadze, who trusted the young attorney and started to groom him for further political offices. Mikheil resigned in 2002, claiming that the entire Georgian government was ripe with corruption. In the summer of 2003, George Soros paid all expenses for Saakashvili and a group of his followers to spend time in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, where they were trained in how to overthrow the government.

THE ROSE REVOLUTION

Once back in Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili led large demonstrations brandishing red roses. These demonstrations continued and increased in the number of people attending until Shevardnadze was forced out of power. These demonstrations took place in the middle of the winter, and fresh roses had to be flown in on a daily basis. This was paid by Soros, who in turn was reimbursed by the Mossad, who in turn was reimbursed by the CIA, who in turn used American taxpayers’ money for this project. It is estimated that $46 million dollars was spent on this regime change in Georgia.

Once Saakashvili had taken over the office as the new president of Georgia, he promised to bring the two breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia back under Georgian control, knowing this would spark an armed conflict with Russia. But Israel and the Western powers wanted South Ossetia to be under Georgian control, since the oil and gas pipelines were running very close to the border of South Ossetia. Two years later in an election, he was legally elected president of Georgia with a landslide victory.

BUILDING UP THE ARMED FORCES OF GEORGIA

Without the knowledge of the American people, the Bush administration started to send military advisors and hardware to Georgia. Israel also sent military advisors and sold military hardware to the government of Georgia. Isn’t it interesting that Israel receives billions of dollars in aid every year from America and it sells military hardware too. That makes them a winner twice and the taxpayers a loser twice because the military hardware and financial aid given away.

The political ground was laid to bring Georgia into NATO because the Bush administration wanted to place a strong anti-missile defense system in Georgia. Officially, it was to neutralize the Iranian missile threat but it would also neutralize the Russian missile as well. Russia knows this and has bitterly opposed it, promising military action if this takes place.

SHEEP DIPPING

Sheep dipping is a military term for the following cover up. The CIA has armed and maintains secret mercenaries around the world. The majority of these soldiers in these combat units are non-Americans but there are still thousands of American soldiers in these units. Here is how they are recruited:

The CIA puts in a request to the U.S. armed forces of what kind of personnel it needs. Regular military personnel are then contacted and given the option to serve in a secret CIA combat unit with a huge salary.

Once a man accepts the new assignment, he is taken off the official rolls of the U.S. armed forces and ceases to exist.

He is trained and taken to a foreign land where he serves in a clandestine operation. His uniform has no markings, he carries no personal papers, and if he is taken captive, there is no identification that leads back to the U.S. military. If he is taken captive, the American government will not help him and will deny that he is an American service man. He is totally on his own, and usually men who are taken captive are tortured to extract information and executed.

If the man survives his tour in the CIA unit, he is transferred back to the U.S. armed forces and begins to exist again. The time he has served is counted on his records and all promotions given to him are transferred to his official record.

There are CIA combat units operating in many foreign nations, instigating trouble and working to undermine national governments in order to facilitate American policies. The Russians have released information that they have captured American and Israeli advisors, who they claim led the Georgian forces.

GEORGIA ATTACKS SOUTH OSSETIA

On Monday, August 4, 2008, the Georgian army started an offensive beginning with artillery shelling of Ossetian defense positions and six Ossetian soldiers were killed. Four days later Georgian tanks were entering the city of Tschinvali, the capital of Ossetia. At the same time five villages were attacked by Georgian army units.

On Saturday, August 9, the President Saakashvili declared his nation is at war with Russia and called home 3,000 troops from Iraq. The U.S. Air Force immediately began to airlift the Georgian troops home so they could fight the Russians.

By Sunday, Russia responded by sending in 6,000 soldiers and landing another 4,000 Russian soldiers via the Black Sea. Russian military aircrafts were bombing targets inside Georgia, causing much damage.

On Monday, August 11, the Georgian Minister of Reintegration, Temur Yakobashvili (Jewish) was interviewed by the Army Radio of Israel and made the following statement in Hebrew, Israel should be proud of its military, which trained Georgian soldiers.”

The Israeli newspaper “Haaretz” wrote the following on its web version the same day, “Georgian Minister Temur Yakobashvili yesterday praised Israel for its role in training Georgian troops and said Israel should be proud of its military might.” (Yakobashvili was referring to the sheep dipping of Israeli mercenaries Georgia had hired.) “Yakobashvili said a small group of Georgian soldiers were able to wipe out an entire Russian military division, thanks to the Israeli training.”

ANOTHER BAY OF PIGS?

In 1960, the CIA had trained a large force of Cuban soldiers in Nicaragua and a year later U.S. Navy landed them on the beach of the Bay of Pigs in Cuba to overthrow Fidel Castro. But once the landing crafts were in the water and on the way to the beach, the President Kennedy gave the order that no further assistance could be given. The promised naval bombardment and air cover was withdrawn. The end result was that the entire invasion force was either killed or taken captive.

The same situation seems to be developing in Georgia. Israel cut off all arms sales to Georgia in July, 2008, even though they knew in advance that Georgian troops had been ordered by the CIA or the Mossad to attack Ossetia in August.

On August 13, 2008, the Israeli Foreign Ministry announced that 210 Israelis and 30 immigrants from Georgia arrived safely back in Israel the day before and that 600 Israeli mercenaries and Georgian Jews, which had assembled at the Israeli Embassy in Tblisi, would be evacuated as soon as possible. In other words, Israel was pulling back its mercenaries and leaving Georgia to fend for itself against the Russian bear.

George Bush on the other hand gave orders on August 13th to start airlifting supplies to Georgia to help its people. The first cargo plane landed in Tblisi with more to follow and U.S. naval forces are also sailing toward the Georgian coast bringing relief supplies. There are also regular American military personnel stationed in Georgia, plus the CIA units.

Condoleezza Rice, the American Secretary of State, has been ordered to fly to Tblisi to assess the situation and give a strong warning to the Russians but there are questions which need to be answered. Who gave the suicidal order for Georgian troops to attack in Ossetia? With no fighter aircraft and only small units of tanks and artillery, the Georgian troops had no chance against the Russian army, navy and air force. Was this attack ordered by some “trigger happy Georgian nationalist” or is it a diversion to cover some other future military operation elsewhere?

Since the Georgian troops were controlled by either U.S. officers or Israeli Army officers, the attack could not take place unless both Washington D.C. and Jerusalem were in agreement. This brings us to the next question. Oil prices have been falling steadily the last four weeks but once BP shut down the oil pipeline in Georgia, the price of oil is rising again. Was this conflict started to boost oil prices since oil consumption has fallen by 800,000 barrels a day in the United States alone?

THE SPIRITUAL FACTOR

It is clear to me that powerful demonic principalities have ruled this area for thousands of years. Wars, atrocities, mass killings, deception and treason have been the norm for the region. Russia is ruled by the demon prince’s Gog and Magog and the demon prince of Persia has ruled his region for a long time. These demon powers never die and use generation after generation for their war games. Only God can stop this madness and that requires fervent praying by Christians! Are you willing to pray and fast for this?

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. (Ephesians 6:10-13)
