Russian Invasion of Georgia, and What It Means
We've had a few days now to think about this horrifying event and what it all means.
It’s still shocking. Russia has invaded Georgia. What can you say? A sovereign nation has been attacked by another country. Is there no rule of law any more? The world has descended into chaos.
And Russia has a history of thumbing its nose at the World Court, the United Nations and other international organizations. Their leaders don’t seem to care about international law or what the world thinks of them.
And the scary part is, Russia’s leaders look almost moderate compared to some of the up-and-coming wannabes in that country. One particular basket case wants to stay in Georgia for a hundred years.
When Russia’s former leader stepped down recently, everyone was afraid (with good reason) that the new person would be awfully, uh, close to his ex-boss.
I sure hope these goons don’t have any further conquests planned after they get through with Georgia.
