They’ll be able to tell if the bodies are American after “carrying out special tests”? Is there an American gene?

according to Russia's RIA news agency

Depending on Russian press is probably a mistake. It is once again controlled by the government.

From what it looked like earlier (fog of war, etc)

It sounds like there has been at least one American detained by the Russians and has been taken somewhere for questioning???????

Yeah ... that will work. Russia will level Washington, NYC, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, LA, etc.. Not that SF would be missed ...

Well, those cities are full of liberals, so in effect, Russia would be killing their allies.

There's a reason that I'm not in charge of "the button".

That was the excuse Russia used to send in the tanks and the aircraft.

Let the Shah of Iran, Saddam Hussein in his war against Iran or the Afhan rebels who fought the Soviets in Afghanistan how the US has supported them later on.

I’m sorry to sound like a moonbat, but it is what it is.

Based on our track record, why would anybody be our temporary ally??

I needed to get that off my chest. I haven’t even clicked on your link.

If Russia did that, that means they launched ICBM’s, which means before they hit we also sent ours.

Hi, Eric, my point in my “Operation Canned Meat” link is to show that the Nazis had the mock Polish attack planned and were ready to jump on Poland with all four feet, not in response to any attack. Like Hitler's Germany, Putin's immediate Russia ‘response’ is way too large to be anything but a preprepared campaign planned way in advance of any Georgian ‘surprise attack.’

As for me, my response would be to tell Putin and Crowd that they had 24 hours to halt their forces and honor a immediate ceasefire or we'd close the the Roki tunnel, trapping all Russian Forces in South Ossetia, and begin military assistance to Georgia including combat air support.

A war with Russia is not a pretty thing to contemplate, but letting Russia get away with murder is not either. Putin is no fool, he will not start a nuclear war as he knows he would lose.

Now, the idiots in Iran are just such fools and we need to knock their A-bomb ambitions right into the dirt before they actually set the Mid-East on a white hot nuclear fire

If American, are they truly mercenaries, or some of our troops there training Georgians who did not/could not get out before the Russians attacked?

Your sense of humor is lacking. Are you one of the angry conservatives discussed HERE?
