Why did Georgia attack South Ossetia?
Because it was a planned operation of NATO countries against the interests of the Russian Federation, as well as a trial of the forces of the NATO military against the Russian army, which, it was thought, was quot; ruined; Serdyukov. In great detail, according to the bones and with all the details, this conflict was dismantled by a retired officer - Dmitry Terekhov in his quot; brainwashing. Information wars, or how to control millions of peoplequot; that came out to the XNUMHeh anniversary of this event 7.08.2011 and 12.08.2011 of the year.

Why, from what ...
Well, they used the tiny ass of Saakashvili, to once again poke Russia into the cask and to the whole world to show its evil essence.
A donkey, he remained a donkey, Russia was traditionally declared a territory of evil. But the standards once again proved their universal armed democracy.
Georgia is exactly like Ossetia was part of the USSR. Disagreements between them appeared immediately after the collapse of the USSR. Georgia did not recognize the independence of Ossetia, and Ossetia tried to prove the opposite. The last straw of Georgia's patience was the official statement of Ossetia about its independence; Georgia, which does not want to lose part of its lands, namely, the territory of Ossetia, tried to solve this problem by force, or rather, the destruction of military facilities on the territory of Ossetia and the arrest of the Ossetian leadership, to which Ossetia responded with response / armed resistance. However, the military potential of Georgia exceeded the Ossetian one by a factor of ten both in number and technology. As a result, Russia could not but react to demanding Georgia to immediately cease hostilities on the territory of Ossetia. Also, Russia was outraged by the presence of American technology and weapons, as well as joint military exercises by the United States and Georgia. Russia decided to suppress the firing positions of Georgia, located on the border with Ossetia and outside it, which could threaten the peaceful population of Ossetia. The order on the performance of Russian troops came immediately after the official data on the civilian population of Ossetia were reported. It is gratifying that for all the movement of Russian troops, there have been no serious clashes between Russia and Georgia. In view of the overwhelming advantage in the army's strength, Georgia had to accept the peaceful resolution proposed by Russia. All those who suffered in the conflict between Russia and Georgia were injured from mined roads and crossings, and not in small arms, which once again proved the brotherhood of the former peoples.
Already funny after reading all the answers.
Gentlemen. If you take the floor about something, then think about it first. Weigh.
First of all, in the initially incorrect statement - quot; Georgia exactly like Ossetia was part of the USSR.quot; Georgia was part of the USSR, but there were no OSETIA republics within the USSR. There was an AUTONOMOUS REPUBLIC OF OSETIA, which is part of the RSFSR, and an autonomous South-Ossetian region within the Georgian SSR. Notice Russia was federal, and Georgia is not. That is, the same Chechnya, Dagestan and others like them, had much more legal and political rights to demand withdrawal from the RSFSR than from the OY autonomous region.
The same is true of the assertion-quot; However, Georgia's military potential has outnumbered Ossetian in terms of both number and technology. South Ossetia did not have any military potential at all. Nowhere to take it. As a result of the All-Union population census of the USSR 1989, the permanent population of South Ossetia was 98 527 people (taken from Wikipedia) -this is considered together with Georgians, Ossetians, and other nationalities living there.

After the beginning of the conflict in 1992year, South Ossetia left a number of Russians and other nationalities, as well as the overwhelming majority of Georgians (those who lived in Tskhinvali and places of compact Ossetians). Georgian villages, Georgians left only after the events of 2008 year. Drop the women, children, the elderly and there will remain a male population of draft age not more than 20-thousand. But after all, somebody worked on the land, in spite of the widespread militarization. And in state structures someone worked, and in trade. Someone in general away from sin in Russia went to work. And how many potential fighters you have left.
From this it follows that South Ossetia, at the time of August 2008, could not have a significant military potential. Several hundred militants who are on the verge of various dirty tricks, but I do not think that they can set up an organized defense.
I agree with the statement-quot; ... Georgia, which does not want to lose part of its land, ... "; it's true. And so far.
I agree also with the fact that large-scale actions, inadequate exposure, took place. But why?!!!! Why is Georgia suffering a splinter in its for ..... (oops, sorry) seat from 1992 year, only now (in 2008 year, after 16 years of inactivity) set out to restore territorial integrity?
I did not dare before, but now I dared? What fool? What, there was no reason?
The United States has changed Georgia in its game. Saakashvili substituted, ordering to start fighting in response to another provocation. Russia accepted the change. What did she forgo? There are guesses, but not more than. Therefore, I will not say.
That's why Misha was tearing his tie, that he understood about the setup. I could not get to the elbows. That chewed that turned up.
Misha screwed up in that he applied the settings of the volley fire in general, and in that it made it possible for the fact of their use to be photographed and even broadcast, then from such stupidity as much as the mind comes to mind.
And in 2013, the USA, in the person of Condonlyza Rice and Matthew Bryza, wiped his feet on him. Like we're fluffy and Misha shit. He is a fool of great age. (the latter is not an insult to the person, it is a statement of fact)
I will conclude by saying that neither the peaceful population of South Ossetia, nor the peaceful population of Georgia, escalation of military operations is needed.
Stupid cattle is everywhere. And you, and unfortunately we have. Grief is that always and at all times, fools were incomparably more than intelligent people.
Well, in Russia, to all, the problem is also creating a road.
