Katskhi Pillar
Katskhi Pillar
The Katskhi pillar is a natural limestone monolith located at the village of Katskhi in western Georgian region of Imereti, near the town of Chiatura. It is approximately 40 metres (130 ft) high, and overlooks the small river valley of Katskhura, a right affluent of the Q'virila. In historical records, the Katskhi pillar is first mentioned by the 18th-century Georgian scholar Prince Vakhushti, who reports in his Geographic Description of the Kingdom of Georgia: "There is a rock within the ravine standing like a pillar, considerably high. There is a small church on the top of the rock, but nobody is able to ascend it; nor know they how to do that."

Once again the West will wag its finger and shake its head, ftuhrer reinforcing the weakness of the west in defending its allies. NATO will take any ftuhrer discussionof Georgian entrance off the table and Russia will gradually absorb controll of its neighbors one by one. One would need the highest powered Microscope available to find a grain a western moral values in Russia. McCain's comment that he saw KGB in Putin's eyes is apt and the weakness of the west strengthens his only value of total control of all in his reach.
