~ The War in Georgia

UPDATE: 5/6/09

There is an attempted Russian-planned coup going on at a Georgian military base. Please see this post for more information: Neo-Soviet Attemped Coup Underway at Georgian Military Base

From 2008:
I’m very concerned (as I’m sure everyone is) about the events occurring in Georgia right now.  In my recent post you can see how I feel about it all.  I’ve been reading a lot of news reports over the last few days, and wanted a place to bookmark and share with others who would like to know more about what is going on over there…  Following are links lists of information available here at the Liberty Rocks Blog, as well as elsewhere on the internet.

Please note – these links will be completed sometime tonight…
