That ...
IS ....

The title of this post should say it all, but I'm not quite as laconic as some of my forebears. Therefore, I'll make it more clear. Georgia, a democratic, peaceful republic has been invaded, and it's people slaughtered, by forces seeking to recreate what previous generations referred to as the evil empire. What we of the West do in response, will guide the flow of history. I pray that we fight the Evil Empire and that we are victorious.

That's about as laconic as I can get.

Greetings. I was deployed for OIF during that timeframe. A large number of the Georgian troops demobed through our base to return home to deal with that issue.

They were very nice people, proud and determined to fight even against very tough odds.

At the same time, their government was giving the people of South Ossetia short shrift. Keep in mind that SO ASKED Russia for help.

I'm not keen on Russia flexing its military muscle. At the same time, Georgia needs to manage its own affairs so its putative residents don't want to quit and be politically relocated.

BTW, liked your comments on Jane Galt's blog.
