By Remy Benoit

From Ellen Barry and C.J. Chivers, The New York Times at Truthout Russia Briefly Allows Georgian Police Into Key City.

For those of you unfamiliar with the history of this Eurasian nation Georgia.

Georgia was the birthplace of StalinRUSstalin.htm">Stalin. in 1879

Many are unaware that his vicious bloody dictator, responsible for the death of millions of his own people, master of the "Personality Cult" of the dictator, at one time was a poet. This review of Rorbert Service's biography of Stain by By Andrew O'Hehir at Salon asks the "what if" question——if he had continued to write poetry might he not have become the Marxist murderer who even Lenin did not trust. The Human Monster.

To be aware of what life under Stalin was like in the Soviet Union, do read some of the works of the just departed Alexandr Solzhenitsyn. His work was originally published by the underground Samizdat.

Georgia is one of the oldest Christian countries in the world.
