US Politicians Admit Georgia Started the Conflict with Russia

Some U.S. politicians are now beginning to admit that Georgia started the conflict with Russia.

For example, the U.S. ambassador to Russia said a couple of weeks ago that Russia's initial military response was legitimate after Russian troops came under attack by Georgian forces.

And a few days ago, Congressman Dana Rohrbacher, a California Republican, said:

"The Russians are right! We're wrong! Georgia started it, the Russians ended it"

Even Dan Fried, a senior US state department official who has consistently stated that Russia started the conflict, is now backpedaling:

The Georgians "believed at the time - at least they said at the time - that they thought the Russian forces were coming through the Roki tunnel (which links Russia with South Ossetia) and they were in imminent danger."

He added: "I'm unable to tell you now whether or not this was true."

Indeed, Georgia's own former defense minister has revealed that the Georgian president planned the invasion of South Ossetia a long time ago.
