Comments on: Medvedev: Hysterical on Missile Defense Research (on Financial Markets) Conducted by Other Means Sun, 23 Nov 2014 20:35:04 +0000 hourly 1 By: Andrew Wed, 30 Nov 2011 11:56:58 +0000 It is interesting that Putin/Medvedev are stationing missiles in Kaliningrad to threaten a system that will now be built in Turkey, seems Geography is not their strong point….

Nope, only in your diseased imagination Mr.X, as another esteemed poster here said, hurry back to your boyfriend Mr.Jones and his infowars site.

The US Aircraft that struck Afghanistan flew from Diego Garcia and passed over Pakistan, not Russia, and I have not found any source that says otherwise.

Russian lessons by Neksarov was filmed during and shortly after the war, you should try watching it, though you may be too retarded to understand as it is not lowbrow, highly faked Russian state propaganda. If you watch the film you might actually learn something.

You frequently denigrate Georgians, and their culture Mr.X, and since you obviously know little about either, you are even more contemptible for doing so. If you don’t like client states, how do you explain your flag waving for the mass murdering, ethnic cleansing separatist regimes of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. You do realize the previous regime of Chibirov in South Ossetia was rolled in a coup organised by Russia just as they were coming to an agreement with Georgia about autonomy within a federal Georgia don’t you? In fact the defense minister of that administration was Dmitry Sanakoyev, an Ossetian who became head of the pro Georgian areas of South Ossetia prior to the war, the villages in those areas now no longer exist as the Russian army bulldozed them.

As to why the Georgians wish to hang on to these areas, well maybe things like the 4thC Georgian churches in Abkhazia, the fact that both areas are traditionally part of Georgia and have had large (usually majority) Georgian populations for millenia. Ethnic cleansing by an imperial power like Russia in the late 20th and early 21st century should not be rewarded.

Andrew, don’t be naive: he is about as much worried about it as is the Ostankino TV tower.

By: Mr. X Tue, 29 Nov 2011 04:35:11 +0000 Andrew, I could never lose an argument to an apologist for a tie-eating maniac and drug addict who was groomed to turn his country into a globalzi client state from his days at Columbia. In fact, I’ve run circles around you this entire thread, therefore you result to childish insults, when I merely suggest that your livelihood may depend on continued massive Anglo-American taxpayer support for the Saakashvili regime.

You lost on facts above — one two three boom boom boom — 1) the Polish report says American planes did go through Russian air space after 9/11 2) The film you linked to has absolutely nothing to with the Lada-grenade launching clip from 08/08/08, and it’s clear the Russian documentary you link to was produced in response to 08/08/08 afterward 3) Israeli media has reported on the visa free travel regime for Iranians in Georgia and Misha the Tie Eater’s cozying up to an increasingly Islamist Turkish government. Not coincidentally, this took place AFTER the Israelis pulled their advisors the hell out of Georgia and started selling UAVs to the Russian side instead.

4th, Phobie away after the breathtaking Russian hack against the central water works in a small Illinois town turned out to be made up by an overly ambitious or mendacious Homeland Security spokesperson. But then again, she always scuttles away whenever the names Prokofy Neva, Fitzpatrick or Jamestown Foundation come up.

And praise from some Marines for PR consumption notwithstanding, this present, client state Georgian army did not fight that well in 2008. If they fell back from Tskinval due to a cease fire (and there’s no evidence to support this assertion, not even from the books sympathetic to Georgia written after the fact), then they did so under U.S. pressure, which only underscores Georgia’s total dependency on the U.S. taxpayer for perhaps 25% of its budget. And this dependency is apparently more important than Saakshvili’s loud proclamation that S.O. and Abkhazia are allegedly sacred territories that must be reclaimed at all costs. Good luck with that Misha…

The 200,000 Georgians who fought and died in WWII fought much better (including the ones who fought to save what is today Russian territory from Nazi occupation), and I would never denigrate their sacrifices or their ancient Orthodox Christian nation or their Patriarch.

I simply don’t like globalist client states. I don’t like countries hailed as allies by brainwashed, endless war advocating Republican MIC whores when they’re actually actually client states and liabilities, like the military junta of Argentina was in the 1980s when it attacked the Falklands. I don’t trust Soros, and I think he poisons everything he touches, including Georgia, and I think he ripped off the U.S. intelligence community for everything they were worth to make his spectacular bets on the pound, the bhat, and the ruble. In return, he gave them a mess of sorry ass Orange and Rose Revolutions. In effect, just as is commonly alleged about the Russian security services, I believe the American ones are serving private, offshore interests and have been thoroughly corrupted.

I think you are constantly apologizing for these elements not because you’re married to a Georgian or some other mundane reason, but because you work for one of those globalzi NGOs that makes the world safe for Corporatism.

By: Andrew Tue, 29 Nov 2011 03:54:19 +0000 Ah Mr.X, how does it feel to always lose an argument?

As you have frequently pointed out, if Israel has a problem with something, so does the US……..

By: Mr. X Mon, 28 Nov 2011 19:23:31 +0000 Figures your best buddies are American siloviks.

“The Economist tisk-tisk? Guess you did not read that either, one of my friends here in Georgia is the US officer assisting the Georgians with border security issues, neither he nor the US Embassy in general have any problem with the visa free travel regime implemented by the Georgians vis-a-vis Iranian nationals” No, but the Israelis might have a problem with it.

By: Andrew Mon, 28 Nov 2011 09:45:45 +0000 Oh here is another quote from a General of the US Marines:

U.S. Marine Corps General Richard Mills, a former commander of coalition forces in south-west Afghanistan, praised Georgian troops serving in the coalition forces for “absolutely superb work.”
Speaking with journalists in Washington on April 27, Gen. Mills, who oversaw operations in the Afghan Helmand and Nimruz provinces from April 2010 until earlier this month, gave some details of assignments undertaken by the Georgian forces under his commend.
Two Georgian battalions – 31st and 32nd from the 3rd infantry brigade – were serving in Afghanistan under Mills’ command. Georgia started rotating its 32nd battalion with the 33rd battalion earlier this month.
“Each of them [31st and 32nd battalions] was magnificent unit. They were characterized by extraordinary professional performance,” Gen. Mills said after he was asked to comment on the Georgian troops’ performance in Afghanistan.
“They were so impressive in fact, that I assigned them a battle space of their own – a large area to west of Helmand province, where they operated in partnership with the Afghan forces to do full spectrum of operations near the city of Delaram [in Nimruz province],” he said.
“Georgians like to fight, they are professional soldiers, who understand what their tasks are and they are more than willing to carry them out. As a matter of fact they asked if they could be given even more duties and so one of their companies was sent to help out in place called Sangin … where a rather significant battle is being fought and again they did a magnificent job up there,” Gen. Mills said.
Sangin district in the Helmand province is regarded to be an important transit route for weapons, drugs and militants.
Gen. Mills said in Sangin the Georgian company was given “a tough” tasks against “a very determined enemy.”
“They [the Georgian unit] came out successful in every encounter; so I was extraordinary impressed,” he said.

By: Andrew Mon, 28 Nov 2011 09:23:15 +0000 The International Fact Finding Mission to Georgia Mr. X

Obviously you know little about the conflict if you have not heard of it or read it.

It excoriates the Russians for their actions describing all of them as illegal and unjustified, with no basis in international law.

The Economist tisk-tisk? Guess you did not read that either, one of my friends here in Georgia is the US officer assisting the Georgians with border security issues, neither he nor the US Embassy in general have any problem with the visa free travel regime implemented by the Georgians vis-a-vis Iranian nationals, as there are plenty of safeguards, including information sharing and stop lists for known militant suspects.

As for Georgian contributions being negligible, more retarded BS from a know nothing idiot.

The Georgians in Iraq were highly commended for their work on the Iran-Iraq border by their US compatriots, and the Georgians serving in Afghanistan are serving with the US Marines in Helmand province, without caveats, in the thick of the fighting. They would not be deployed there unless the USMC believed they were up to the task.

The USMC training teams deploy with those they have trained and state they are very good troops who are putting in the hard yards.

After training in Georgia, each Afghanistan-bound Georgian battalion completes the cycle with a mission
rehearsal exercise in Hohenfels, Germany. In an environment in which all politics must be laid aside, the
US Marine Corps takes responsibility to certify that the Georgian unit is deployment ready. You can bet that
the Marines undertake this task very seriously—if they are wrong, Marines could die.
In training and in real wartime experience in Afghanistan, the Marines have come to respect their Georgian
allies—and Marines are not people to give idle praise.
“These guys are in the fight, they want to fight and they want us to teach them how to fight, which is the
beauty of it,” Major Andrew Del Gaudio, then top Marine trainer in Georgia, said in the April 6 edition of
another publication, the Marine Corps Times.
“They’re really good troops,” Major General Richard Mills, former Marine commander in Afghanistan, told
the Marine Corps Times. “Their officers tend to lead from the front and tend to expose themselves often to
danger. They’ve taken some casualties, and yet they have remained focused and remained on task and
bounced back very, very quickly.”
General Mills could have been referring to 1Lt Shukvani.
“They are not afraid to fight and they know their tactics,” said Carlton Kent the Sergeant Major of the
Marine Corps. “They’re side by side with us over there, and the Marines who are over there with them say
positive things about them. They are sacrificing just like everyone else. They are pulling their load.”
That is big stuff coming from the top Marine sergeant!

Of course, nobody expects a gutless little coward like yourself to understand Mr.X

By: Mr. X Mon, 28 Nov 2011 06:30:26 +0000 And as for you Professor, you take Pakistani promises more seriously than Russian ones. The Russians haven’t been sending our kids home in boxes. Shame on you.

By: Mr. X Mon, 28 Nov 2011 06:06:10 +0000 IFFMG? Who is that? Try reading Der Spiegel sometime Andrew and don’t tell me it’s Jerry propaganda. Or hell, go ask Congressman Dana Rohrbacher, he’s got access to the House Intel Committee reports neither you nor SWP have. And stop praising an army that’s killing Americans and trashing the very real lethal armaments going via Russian Railways in favor of all the ones that get scattered blown to bits along the Khyber Pass. But hell, I guess I should go back and read dozens of posts from 09′ or something to get SWP’s honest opinion on that (or something) rather than keep pointing to his idiotic, spitefully Russophobic recent comment.

Most of those spectacular Georgian contributions to the War on Terror you cite exist in Reny Harlin movies, I’m afraid, and that one was a knockoff of Olympus Inferno simply with the roles reversed and having a crazed Russian as opposed to Georgian army officer chasing the scared foreigners around South Ossetia.

And where’s your rebuttal to The Economist tisk tisk on the I-ranians in Georgia, Andrew?

I’ve never encountered any commenter who so finely encapsulated the worst of both Anglomaniac and globalist tendencies.
