So do I, God Help Us.
Does anyone else think that we encouraged Georgia to undertake a suicide mission by attacking S. Ossetia, just so that we'd have an excuse to go to war with Russia?
Of course not. IMHO, that’s like saying we bombed the Towers to start a war with Iraq.
Russia has done things like this all throughout its history. My Dad lived through World War II and has been telling me for years that Russia was just biding its time until it started trying to take over Europe again.
No. That just flat doesn’t make sense.
The proper way to end a comment like yours is “/sarcasm”. Otherwise people are dumbfounded thinking you’re serious.
Tinfoil hat, drugs, lots of beer. Step away from the computer, radio, tv for a while. These all might help.
I have a wild imagination, but I think your theory is nuts.
YES! YES! The US feigned pressure on Iran when the real target was Russia! Why go after a country of 66 million people when you have 140 million waiting next to Georgia. Insightful!
Georgia being traded for Russians standing aside while Israelis take out Iranian nukes with US/ EU support.
We’ve got our hands full right now in the middle east. There’s no way the Bush administration would purposely incite Russia with so many of our troops deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq. OTOH, Putin probably thinks the end of an unpopular, “lame-duck” president’s term is the perfect time to expand his territory,lessen U.S. influence in the region, and get his hands on more oil.
