Ding, Ding, Russia Vs. Georgia

What's going on, and what hopefully won't happen.

I’m on a roll, and I am not stopping for anybody! Georgia, Russia, who’s next? It pains me, when I try to bring it up in conversation, that people ask me, “Oh my, why are they attacking Georgia, and not New York?” There must be something chronically wrong with the American view, and I thought that some of us would pay a little more attention to our news stations from the recent hikes in the stock market, and the upcoming election… obviously not so much.

I want to ask, why does everyone come to ask us to interfere? Of course when we are down and out, no one is at our aide except for our quick friends, but when someone else is in trouble, they always scream, “Where the fuck is the US!” It pains me, heavily. Not only are we fighting… countless wars, we are also at an economic downturn, and yet we have to be the peacekeepers, not that we are much of ones ourselves.

John McCain said this week, and I am recalling from memory, that one country should never take force over another country. WHAT THE FUCK ARE WE DOING IN IRAQ? The hypocrisy seems to pain me, if I were McCain, and if I were Obama, I would never even touch this issue unless it was asked. Becoming the next President of the United States with a target on your head from Russia, is not a great thing.

I seemingly don’t understand how some Americans can go around with their heads up there asses, and not even know about these events. I’m not on either side, the Georgians or the Russians, because I believe if we take a side, we are royally screwed either way.

The Russians are one of the most powerful countries in the world, and if we are to jeopardize our relationship with them right before a possible attack on Iran, I do not doubt that we will create a Third World War.

As I continue to watch the events, and the Olympics, I do feel proud that we have not made any rash decisions. While the Georgians may have helped us in Iraq, there should be no reason why we must put ourselves on the line for a country that is basically part of Russia, sure they are independent and what not, but honestly, I don’t care if you are asking us, being an enemy to Russia is a bigger fear than being an enemy to Georgia.

I hope our government will make a conscientious decision and think about all the outcomes, because if we get involved with this, I don’t know if the US will last that much longer.

Fear of Russia is soooo 80's...I'm over it.  And while I can't imagine we'd get  involved in a war with a country that might actually pose a real challenge to us we have taken a side.  We slapped Russia on the hand and said "Bad boy...we'll be very very angry with you if you continue this aggression".
