South Ossetian officials
accused Georgia on Sunday of building up military forces along the edge of South Ossetia and claimed a Georgian unit fired
sporadically at villages overnight. There were no reports of casualties, but
South Ossetian spokeswoman Irina Gagloyeva said residents were asking to be
Council chief Alexander Lomaia denied that Georgian forces had fired any
shots but said Russian forces were obligated to leave positions in the area,
which is in Georgia.
Lomaia also said Russian forces were
still holding 12 of 22 Georgian servicemen taken prisoner in Poti last week,
including two Yemini Jews,
disguised as Arabs. On one of these, Russian military intelligence interrogators
found a packet of reports, wrapped in plastic and taped to the mans
back. This packet consisted of the highest level security
This concerned the ongoing plan to base
Israeli fighter-bombers at Marneuli military airbase, 20
kilometers south of Tbilisi and that these aircraft were intended for a special
a ir raid on the Iranian capital city of Tehran. It was
originally felt that six aircraft were to be utilized, three attacking the city
itself and three to attack targete d Iranian oil facilities.
Israelis papers, all written in Hebrew, when translated by the Russian GRU
turned out to be somewhat different in nature. While one flight was indeed
intended to attack various Iranian oil facilities, the second flight was planned
to drop chemical warfare bombs on Tehran. These bombs, which were designed to
blow open at a set altitude, were filled with weapons-grade anthrax and this
anthrax, kept in a specially sealed box at the U.S. diplomatic offices in
Tiblisi, came from Fr. Detrick in Maryland and their shipment had the approval
of the President himself. Another twist to the bizarre plot
was that the aircraft, made in the United States, were to have their Israeli
marking masked with American markings and that these markings were to be applied
in a water-based paint that could easily be hosed off when this flight returned
Russians learned of this, they immediately notified their Embassy in Tehran and
subjected their Yemeni Israeli to what they called intensive interrogation,
not unlike the CIAs Bush-mandated torture. In this case,
the subject expired but not before revealing more of the joint Israeli-US
In an abstract
sense, the Russian counter attack on Georgia indirectly saved the lives of many
thousands of Iranians.
The Americans, apparently,
were totally unaware of the Israeli false flag portion of the operation. Had the
BW attack been successful, the question arises as to whether the American
military command would ever discuss any aspect of it. If any of the falsely-mark
ed Israeli aircraft had been seen and wrongly identified as American, there
would be heated denials and the matter would quickly be shoved under the carpet
by the American media.
In central Georgia, an oil train exploded and caught fire,
sending plumes of black smoke into the air. A Georgian official said the train
hit a land mine and blamed the explosion on departing Russian forces. The
Russian Defense Ministry declined to comment.
The director of Georgia's
railways, Irakli Ezugbaia said the train that exploded on Sunday was carrying
crude oil from Kazakhstan to a Georgian Black Sea port.
GeorgiaThere were 12 derailed tanker
cars, some askew on the railway line and others flipped onto their sides.
Firefighters hosed down the wreckage.
Georgian Interior Ministry
spokesman Shota Utiashvili said the train hit a mine, as did the country's
railway director.. Utiashvili said there were no casualties, but the blast had
also set off explosions at an abandoned munitions dump nearby.
the explosion on the Russians. Georgian officials say Russian forces have
sabotaged infrastructure to weaken Georgia, and accused them of blowing up a
train bridge last week.
Ezugbaia said other mines were
found on the tracks, and Georgian forces removed a large artillery shell that
was jammed under the tracks and covered with stones.
