To those who think Georgia start this. Nay... or HET!. This was a mutual war.This conflict goes way back, and Russia has been pushing and planing for
this for over a year it is believed. Why won't the Russian's let
anyone into the area to verify damage or deaths? Because the tally is lower.
Why are they digging in and not leaving. Because they are staying and playing
the West for fools. Why do ex-soviet states want so badly to be with Nato???
.... unfortunately Ukraine is next; it is reported that Russia is handing out
passports in the Crimean. I think it's time for the Nato allies to
grow some. And actually put some Nato forces in Georgia to help with
humanitarian aid.... peacekeeps like the Russian's call them.Russia
is Back (or should I say USSR) and Putin wants his legacy... this is reality
my friends.... No US president will be able to change Putin's Russia until Putin
is gone.The writing was on the wall but we chose to ignore it.So suck it up and learn Russian or do something about it.
feel free to pick up an M-16 and hop on a C-130 - I'll be right behind you .....
mmmmmm way behind you but all the best
It is a chess game and the USA is a stupid player. Let's hope that after the
elections we will have new players with a little more brains.
GEORGIA STARTED THIS! Ossettia is 90% Russian. They have NEVER wanted to be
part of Russia. Georgia had been attacking civilians and Russia finally decided
it wasn't going to tolerate that and took action.
I say what's good for the Georgian goose is good for the Russian gander. If
ethnic separatism in the Caucasus is such a noble cause, and if the South
Ossetians deserve their own mini-me state, then let the North Ossetians break
away from Russia, too. Not to mention the Chechens, whose country (as those who
were paying attention will remember) the Russians blasted into rubble a few
years back to make sure the rubble was Russian rubble. So how about
it, Vlad?And what say you, all you inexplicably pro-Putin

advance its policies?
jce0609 | 8:54 a.m. - "I get it! "We invade Iraq, Georgia invades Osettia, birds
of a feather. Ya think maybe GW's buddy Putin doesn't know this?"Putin's merely following Bill Clinton's lead of invading Serbia/Kosovo.Oh, and don't forget Granada.
Russia intervened to stop Georgias ethnic cleansing operation in South
Ossetia.Hopefully, the writer does not support ethnic cleansing.
Did you forget they have something like 15,000 nukes in their country. That is
why we don't attack Russia. Mutually Assured Destruction. Diplomacy is the
only way to go here.
For it is said: you can judge a tree by the bitter fruit it bares. If Russia was impressed by the quality of American leadership, the readiness
of our military and the resolve of America; why aren't they concerned? This is
what the great decider as left behind as a testimony and legacy of his
presidency.It doesn't take mush research to discover that Georgia
did a lot to cause this war.When you live in sin, you loose the
ability to renounce the sins of others. Bush created a international environment
were drive by invasions are to be expected. Next, Bush will tell
Russia not to use torture or use lies to advance its policies?
Saturday, when asked what is worth American lives, John McCain answered
"National Security", then went on a diatribe about this horrible thing Russia is
doing to Georgia.I believe that man would go to war with Russia
today, if he could. Its unfortunate that the Republicans are putting forth
another neoconservative as their candidate.I feel sympathy for the
Georgians, but their plight is not worth American lives.
We don't need another Iraq or another Vietnam. And we certainly don't need to
find ourselves at odds with Russia again.Don't be ridiculous.
Who should help Iraq? They were invades and are taken over by an army of
occupation for no reason at all.
What do ypu propose to do? Invade Georgia and fight the Russians on their own
turf, with 20 million Russian troops a day or two away? Are you nuts? We have
resources to put pressure on Russia that don't involve a suicide attack in
I was surprised and somewhat confused to hear that Georgia, a previous Russion
state, was fighting in Iraq for the Americans.My only conclusion is
that our government must have paid a whole lot of money to someone in Georgia to
get them to volunteer to fight for us.
I get it! We invade Iraq, Georgia invades Osettia, birds of a feather. John
McCains Foreign Policy advisor, Randy Scheunemann, was until March, a high paid
lobbyist for the Georgian government. Now McCain is pushing for action in
Georgia. Of course we have no troops to send due to Iraq and Afghanistan so
posturing is all we can do. Ya think maybe GW's buddy Putin doesn't know this?
The reason we didn't go to Georgia's aid is because we don't want a shooting war
(likely with nukes) with Russia just now. Lucky for us we are fighting in Iraq
which removed any such temptations.
" Please think before you write."And the writer should do some
research on what is really going on in Georgia, South Ossetia, and Abkhazia.
Neither of those regions ever wanted to be part of Georgia and their ethnic
people have suffered from Georgian aggression more than the Georgians have from
If by, "We should help them like they helped us" you're referring to the
unwarranted invasion and occupation of Iraq. Perhaps we should chalk this one
up to karma and call it good.
What, should we nuke Russia? Please think before you write.
