Help Georgia Now
I don't care how, we just need to do it now.
"As a Russian jet bombed fields around his village, Djimali Avago, a Georgian farmer, asked me: “Why won’t America and Nato help us? If they won’t help us now, why did we help them in Iraq?” "
They helped us in Iraq when we needed them. Why aren't we standing with them. 'F' the cause. Yes, they shouldn't have tried to take their own territory back with force, but for God's sake, Russia is absolutely destroying everything outside of South Ossetia.
We need to draw a line and stand firm. They did it for us, we'd better do it for them if we ever want to depend on help from other countries for military support in the future.

One of our local radio stations was talking about how all of this is going on, and Bush and Putin were sitting within arms' reach of each other at the swimming venue in Beijing.
Georgia made a mistake, but Russia's response is ridiculous.
The US won't do anything to help Georgia...well, maybe if Russia hits the BTC Pipeline they'd protest a bit louder...9:48 AM
Ditto what Lindsay just said.
I think it's a bad situation that will only get worse if we get involved right now. This all kind of feels similar to the build up before World War 1 or the Cold War, and I am in no big hurry to return to those days; however, I am optimistic that this will work itself out to an acceptable conclusion in the next few weeks.
