Media war against Russia

In the modern world you cant wage a war just with your tanks and planes.
You have to use media. In Germany during WWII they would say "Truth is not what happened, truth is what we tell people".
Yesterday Russian military aircrafts bombed several Georgian military bases. It worth mentioning that military men are located in the a five-storied buildings which look exactly alike residential. The reason for this is simple, they were built in the Soviet Union times and there was not much diversity in architecture.

This morning (its 7 a.m. Moscow time right now) one can read on the BBC news site. Russia deaf to Western voices, Reuters agency posts a horrible pictures of Russian bombardments of allegedly civilian residential buildings. But what if you take a closer look?

Warning: the pictures contain scenes with blood and allegedly injured people.

For instance on this picture you can see one obviously dead body of a person in a checkered shirt. The other body is carried by medics, carried as if it was a dead body, but you can notice that the hand of a person is holding a woman medic's sleeve. Well so far everything looks pretty real, except maybe for one guy in black who doesn't look anyhow concerned.

Now on this picture we see a crying man and a body in his hands. But look closely! This is the same checkered shirt, same trousers and shoes, the same person. So does it mean that the crying man took the body brought it some place else? Hardly so, this is just one of the participants of the show. And again if you look close enough you can notice that the guy crying is the person in black from the previous picture.

Now here he is again, alone still with some clothes on, or may be he got changed.

Generally if you see the pictures you can notice that nothing happens around the scene. No people running, and there are actually not a lot of people for a big residential building area if it was really bombed.

Well, I'm cant be sure that some Russian rockets didn't hit by accident some building adjacent to a military base, but look, they ruinedTskhinvally. They did it on purpose, and now they blame us! They started military offence in the first day of Olympics. Bombed Russian peacekeepers barracks and Russia is to be blamed? No, I don't think so.

Now, look at the other side. There's no pictures from the capital of South Ossetia which is totally ruined now, and the good reason we don't have pictures from where is because when there's no power for your equipment, even satellite link would be hardly of any use. And if you have a tape, you have to get it out of the city and to survive as well. Two Russian reporters are injured already, others try to relay videos via satellite phones, but the quality is pretty bad as they have to compress it to the minimum size.

And some news:

The capital of S.Ossetia is being under fire again, there's a road from where, called Zarskaya road or Zar road, it's been attacked by Georgian tanks overnight. The attack was repelled, but Georgians still have positions for firing the road. The chief of Russian 58th army was injured, when his convoy was going along this road. Two reporters and members of a TV crew as well were injured in the same convoy.
