As the Geogian Army attempts to reestablish control of its South Ossetia province, Russia is sending in tanks.
Read about it:
Call me a conspiracy theorist, but ever since the apparent breakup of the Soviet Union in 1989, I have suspected the whole thing to be a ploy, a long-term strategy to prompt the US and Europe to disarm. Recall the farce-like atmosphere in which Russian tanks were driving around aimlessly, without any clear orders, culminating with Boris Yeltsin climbing up on a tank to give an "impromtu" speech (before the cameras). My intuition has always been that the old Soviet Union will some day coalesce once again, almost overnight, to threaten world domination.
This clash, along with Vladimir Putin's behind-the-scenes power-mongering and popular youth movement (eerily similar to the Hitler Youth) might well contribute to that eventuality.
Remember that you heard it here first.
