Forty Years Ago, The Tanks Rolled Into Czechoslovakia
History repeating itself? The Russians seem to like making military moves in August. I have noticed this for some time and EVERY AUGUST for the past 4 years I have watched these bastards closely. This August, it finally happened...Georgia.
An interesting angle that I have not heard yet from anyone is the USA was involved in the Vietnam war when Russia invaded Czechoslovakia. Today , while the USA is in Iraq and Afghanistan Russia invades Georgia. Was it part of their plan? Keep the USA busy while fighting their surrogates (yes, Saddam was a Russian surrogate and so is Al Qaeda) so they can just walk into any Country that they like. Interesting...
