If we don't take care, half the country is going to be swallowed by the Russian giant. Do we want to go back to the Iron Curtain? Russia never having to account for anything?
I don't give a damn about people telling me that Russia was provoked by the "attack" on South Ossetia by the Georgian army to bring that rebellious province to heel, and that Russia only went in to "save" their Ossetian brothers.
That's a load of bullshit.
Russia only wants control, to my untutored eye. The bigger the better.
And it has a lot of losses to make up for, n'est-ce pas.
Anyway. The assault on South Ossetia may have been a mistake; I shan't comment on that.
But whatever happened, Russia has no right to storm in and bomb the place. There are thousands of dead on the Georgian side. This is unacceptable. How can anyone be justifying it?
South Ossetia and Abkhazia are rebellious provinces and however much they might want to be part of Russia, they're not. They're Georgian. Part of Georgia. There's nothing Russia can do about this and the country has no excuse whatsoever for this attack on another country's sovereignty.
I'm ashamed anyone could consider Russia has a point.
