Is it crazy to believe that only Russians, Georgians, Americans…have the right to establish their own independent states?
Is it crazy to believe that the Ossetians, north and south have the right to establish their own independent state?
It amazes me how on the 08.08.08 the Russians attacked the Georgians and the Georgians invaded South Ossetia. Then the Russians invaded South Ossetia. It was a theatrical nightmarish spectacle rivaling only with the Beijing Olympic opening ceremony. Both were tributes to outdated patriotism and militaristic narcissism. Obviously, the Caucasian conflict caused over 2,000 deaths in a matter of days and over 150,000 people have been displaced…the Chinese Communist regime endorsed the hypocritical sympathy of the planet, while forgetting that minorities such as the Uyghurs and Tibetans are brutally repressed as we speak.
It amazes me even more that while President Bush was enjoying the Olympic Games, he had the decency to express to Mr. Putin his feelings about the whole conflict. “Sorry dude, it is OK for us to invade any country that we please but it is wrong for you...By the way, have you seen the volleyball beach gals…I was so tempted, so tempted…?” (Not actual words, just a dramatization of the events).
Mr. Putin's reply was: “Oh, yes, I get it ;)...nice girrrls” (Not actual words, just a dramatization of the events).
As of today, Russia is invading Georgia.
Mr. Bush holding a U.S. flag. Is this a distressed call?
