Finally....some protesters I can agree with

Aug. 11: Protesters take part in a pro-Georgian rally outside Russia's consulate in Thessaloniki, Greece. Russian troops and armor pushed into two separatist regions of Georgia on Monday and Georgian forces shelled the Russian-held capital of South Ossetia as the Caucasus crisis worsened.

I just can't bring myself to back either side.

As far S. Ossetia is concerned, any moron can see it's not part of Georgia, otherwise it wouoldn't be called South Ossetia when Ossetia is part of Russian. Abkazia doesn't want anything to with Georgia and also likes Rusia. Let them go.

The real target is Ukraine anyway.

Indigo Red, maybe Georgia should've let SO and Abkhazia go, but that's not the point. The point is that Russia invaded Georgia when Georgia had not set a foot on Russian ground. Georgia sent it's troops only into land that, rightly or wrongly, it considers its own. Russia was never threatened.

The invasion of Georgia wasn't to protect SO or Abkhazia but to reestablish Russian domination over Georgia and to send a message to the other former Soviet bloc countries that the same waits for them if they don't tow a pro-Russian line. In other words, the invasion was the beginning of Russia's plan to resurrect the Soviet/Czarist empire.

The Russians, emboldened by the muted response from the world community and the peace crowd to its invasion of Georgia, is now threatening to attack Poland because it signed a missle defense treaty with America.

Who's going to stop Russia? The people who always stop aggressors--US! And at what price? Well, all I can say to that is we will pay now or we will pay later. And if history is any guide, we'll pay a lot less if we pay now.
