Russia is out to get Georgia

This footage shows Russian aircrafts bombing the town of Gori in Georgia. Just a couple of observations. Those buildings getting destroyed do not look like military objects in my eyes but rather like civilian residential houses. And the wounded persons do not look like soldiers but like elderly civilians.

And by the way, Gori is outside the breakaway province of South Ossetia and only 76 kilometers from the Georgian capital Tbilisi. Looks like Russia is out to get all of Georgia which is a disgrace.

Edit: I just learned from the blog of Estonian MP Marko Mihkelson that Tbilisi International Airport has been bombed as well. Also, AFP reports about a naval blockade of Georgia imposed by the Russian Navy:

In a new move demonstrating Moscow’s giant military advantage, Russian warships were reported by Interfax news agency to be setting up a sea blockade to prevent arms and other military supplies from reaching Georgia.
