Thanks for your blog. I've found there to be a general deficit when it comes to translations of Russian sources, which is why I've created my own blog (http://tarjimani.blogspot.com) to address this problem. My translations are amateur, but they may at least help your readers get a better picture of the situation.

There will be a day the US will come into fight and destroy this whole USSR republic. From that day on, we shall have peace.

I don't know what it is. Unfortunately, BBC does not say when and where the video was made. However, on the video you can see day light. The war started the night before, you can read how here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/7551576.stm .
Russian mass media say the same night Russian president called for the meeting of UN security council to condemn bombing Tskhinvali. He also insisted on moving in Russian troops at 11.30. Again, according to Russian newspapers, the troops moved in at 11.00.

"There will be a day the US will come into fight and destroy this whole USSR republic. From that day on, we shall have peace."

I'm affraid, no. If it is not Russia, than it would be Irak, Serbia, Afghanistan, Iran, Israel, etc.

To the newspaper workers:
Thank you for your work. I hope your correspondents will be safe soon. Good luck and my best wishes to all of you.
