Russian Invasion: 1,500 Dead As Russian Troops Raid Georgia

Continuing the invasion begun yesterday, Russia has dispatched hundreds of tanks and troops into the province of South Ossetia today, escalating the conflict. Georgian towns have been bombed through air strikes leaving hundreds of civilians dead and wounded.

Georgia launched a significant offensive maneuver yesterday aimed at retaking control of breakaway province of South Ossetia. Russia has close ties to the province and providing them peacekeepers. They responded by sending in convoys of tanks and military aircraft. Georgia is an ally of the US.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov confirmed that about 1,500 people have been killed, and the death toll is rising.

n 1993 some 65 percent of Georgians were Georgian Orthodox, 11 percent were Muslim, 10 percent Russian Orthodox, and 8 percent Armenian Apostolic. Is this a religious war or a war to bring the Nation of Georgia back under Russian control? The "last World War" started 11 September 2001.
