Georgia on my mind

My impression, which was confirmed by Gorbechev on CNN, is that Russia and Georgia have historically had good relations -- remember that his foreign minister, Shevernadze, was Georgian.

The current conflict is being framed by the Western media as the return of Russian aggression, but if you study the facts this just isn't so. South Ossetia declared its independence from Georgia in the 90's. Georgia started the current conflict, which was carefully orchestrated by the John McCain people to help boost his campaign, carefully timed to coincide with the distraction of the Olympics, and carefully designed to clinch the Polish missile deal, all of which serves the conservative agenda of expanding NATO and reviving the Cold War. Don't forget that this all a pile of horse shit.

Those bastards! They will do ANYTHING to stay in power. Too bad the country wants positive energy, not fear based tactics.
