This is scandalous. I haven't actually gotten around yet to believeing that Russia has been carrying out military operations in Georgia, deliberately violating another country's sovereignty.
And I don't give a fuck that those two regions wanted the Russians there. This would be a whole different ball game if Russia decided the Inner Mongolians (inner mongolia being a chinese province) needed help to break away from China and into their fold, wouldn't it. Or if a neighbouring country decided that Chechnya was actually part of them and not of Russia. It's terrible.
On another note, France and Britain are doing very badly in the Olympics. The US are doing well. And China is leading the game, there's a surprise.
