    So much hatred for evil Georgia here.
    Georgia aint evil lol... It aint the fault of Georgia that they have a bone headed egotistical moron as a president.

    By the way, Russia has bombed civilians just like Georgia, in fact, Russia has bombed more of them, including reporters.
    But that's just another fact, not an excuse.
    Let me quote a much used right wing excuse... War sucks, deal with it.

    Well, Georgia is a democracy, so if you're going to blame someone blame the entire nation or don't blame at all.

    The results of the last elections were hotly disputed (im surprised no one remembers this) so thats debateable. Even if they were do you belive everything your government does represents you 100%? I certainly dont.

    Not you specifically, but the people as a collective.
    That's the cost of democracy anyway.

    Saakashvili is a bumbling idiot. Of course Russia was looking for a pretext to clobber him, but he more than did his part by giving them one. And although he may have been democratically elected (just as Putin was originally), he has grown increasingly authoritarian and is hardly a democrat himself.

    None of the arguments for giving Georgia unflinching support during that conflict made a damn bit of sense.

    George did not comot agression. Georgia was defending it's territorial rights.
    Russia being a imperilast pig of a country used the Georgian deense of it's territory as an excuse to invade Georgia.

    South Ossetia does not want to be part of Georgia, just like Georgia did not want to be a part of the USSR.

    Even if that was true it was the Russians who stirred up the trouble. Furthermore how stupid can the South Osetians be by wanting to be a small tiny obscure little territory part of a giant imperialitic "country". South Osesstia could have been a "smaller" part of a small country thereby in reletive terms having a larger propportion.
    Are the Ossetinas that stupid? Do they not see what the barbaric animals the Russians have done to the Chechens ?

    So you are saying that Russian imperialism is ok but Georgia cannot defend it's own territory ?

    How about Chechenya ? Does not Chechnya have the right to be free and not have the imperialist bastards those filthy Russians murder them ?
