so I don't know anything about what's going on in Russia right now. but Natalia does. go get educated!
Guess its a Eastern-Europe slash Western-Asia thing. I mean, I can't imagine the U.S. sending tanks into Alberta for instance. For what? They raise the price of Molson by a dollar a bottle? Or they'd try to grab a county in Montana for their own (take it, hell while you're there, take all of Montana - there's no tax base there and the winters suck).
Also have wondered aloud why Russia would attack Georgia. Couldn't they just attack Pennsylvania instead, punt the Phillies for me and let my NY Mets win the division for once?
In all seriousness though, this Georgia situation is atrocious
but honestly, what are we to do
about it other than make stern
press releases and perhaps issue
a (gasp) "sharp rebuke" to Russia? Seems we have our own atrocious situation about 1200 miles to the south-southeast, plus a lame duck president, plus an election coming up, plus our economy is one good sized terrorist attack or Katrina-like event from completely collapsing.
Guess the answer for now the sharp rebuke ("Shame on you Russia, shame on you"). Think the answer would be different if we weren't STILL up to our eyeballs in Iraq?
Well, had to comment as usual.
