Georgia on my mind

The foolish provocation by Georgia of Russia, which has been itching under Putin to flex its muscles, is something an engaged U.S. President should have attempted to stop at all costs. President Bush is busy cavorting with the US woman’s volleyball team instead. Now that the deed is done and the Ruskies have invaded Abkazia we have no moral standing to tell them to get the hell out. We charged into Iraq with no more justification.
