Nodar lost control of his sled in a curve and was thrown out of the track and into a steel beam. I assume he was killed instantly.

This accident is so horrible, so terrible. We offer our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends, and to the people of the Republic of Georgia. We’ll keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Nodar was 21.

Russia Vows Military Response To Missile Shield In Europe

AP reports that Russia is vowing a “military” response to the missile shield in Europe.

Reuters is reporting that the US is scrapping a planned port call in Poti to deliver humanitarian aid. Tensions between the United States and Russia may be getting out-of-control. Scrapping the port call may be an effort by the US to defuse tension.

Navy Times is still reporting that the Navy will deliver aid at Poti.

Georgian “Green Helmet” Guy?

This video purports to show Georgian propaganda and a certain gentleman in various roles.

Green helmet guy? Watch and decide for yourself.

One note, I believe it was the Jawa Report that coined the phrase “Green Helmet Guy” after a Lebanese man that was caught faking some carnage and mourning during a conflict with Israel.

Russia Prepares Nuclear Response If US/Nato Intervenes In Georgia

Russia has apparently prepared a tactical nuclear response option should the United States and Nato intervene in Georgia.

In an interview with Amy Goodman at Democracy Now, Col. Sam Gardiner, USAF(Ret.) noted that Russia had moved two SS-21 medium-range ballistic missile launchers into South Ossetia. The SS-21 can be both conventional and nuclear he said.

Russia has clearly warned the West to stay out of its affairs in Georgia/South Ossetia.

Georgian Government Websites Under Cyber Attack

From Black Flag at the Jawa Report:

“True to form there’s appears to have been a cooperative effort between the cyber attacks and the military attacks on the ground in Georgia. Whether the attacks are the work of the Russian government or that of those sympathetic to their cause remains to be seen. Estonia recently suffered a similar fate less the actual physical invasion forces. …”
