Yeah…and this time its in Georgia. But who cares. We are tired of wars at least the overt wars. Nowadays we call it by some other name – conflict, disturbance, regional tension, temporary aggression. But with over 1800 (official Russian figures) casualties in the separatist region of South Ossetia in just 4 days…
Here is the picture. Georgia which was a part of the USSR separated from the federation, but still has some regions that hanker union with Russia. America, never afar from a region of conflict, trains the Georgian troops. Russian support for the rebels in Georgia are of course frowned upon by Georgia, which has used force, which brings forth more Russian support – a vicious cycle.
And now it is full blown war.
Meantime the Olympics have begun and oaths are being taken – fairplay, honesty, sportsman spirit etc
