Subject: thoughts on the Russian
war from a Russian
As I write this, Russian President already ordered
a halt to military actions.
Georgia gambled. Stupidly, mind you, but gambled.
They did a surprise shock and awe, and killed
a bunch of peacekeepers and innocent civilians
(mind you, I don't think even the Taliban or
Saddam Hussein attacked peacekeepers).
And they thought either 1) Russia won't react,
and give up South Ossetia,
or 2) Russia will react, but the western world
will come to Georgia's aide.
Both thoughts were stupid, and any logical politician,
could've told them neither is going to happen.
article has some great points.
One thing to keep in mind, always...the current
government of Georgia was put in place
by the Bush administration, and the military
is trained/financed by US.
That alone, should make us wonder as to the reasons
behind this little war.
Alex, thanks for that.
I had no idea those Bush bastards were involved.
I guess they've created another situation where everybody needs to buy
weapons from the BFEE to prevail in the next Bush-bastards-instigated
