Sex & War.. ahh the constants. [Aug. 13th, 2008|04:43 pm]

Opinion time! I'm asking for yours!

Have you been following what's going on with Georgia and Russia?

What are your opinions?


There's some information if you're in the dark, or pop on CNN. I've been following it pretty closely the last few days.. and I really REALLY think this could get bad. And fast. And I think this could be a lot more scary then the Iraqi/Afghanistan conflict, and we all kow how many people have died from that conflict.

And I'm especially interested in my Russian and international journallers views as well about this. So please, I welcome your comments and want to know your opinions.

And unrelated...


Have some turtle sex.

We are apparently living in a glass house. Russia alleges that Georgia destroyed 10 villages,reasons for why not stated. They are basically saying that they are stepping into stop the country from committing anymore atrocities towards it's people.

Hmmm forgive me if I am wrong but isn't that what we do all the time? Yet rather than investigate we just assume the worst of Russia's intentions? So what we can police the world but no one else can?

I don't know if the allegations are true but that is what should be looked into before any other actions are taken.

I think the allegations should definitely be looked into -- but wouldn't that be suicidal for a country like Georgia? I mean just look at the size of it, and the limited means that it has compared to Russia.. It doesn't make since that Georgia would do anything that stupid.

-- And yeah, hypocritical to be sure. But all the same, I think this could be the gate to the next world war and I'm scared.

The 10 villages that Georgia destroyed were actually in Georgia not Russia but in a part that is seeking independence.

Finally some of that information is starting to come out about Georgia striking first. Up to this point the Western media has been neglectful of that information.

Well the problem is we seem to still hold the bias that Russia is the bad guys so if they do something we would have done we can't let our people know because god forbid we think of Russia as a country that is showing compassion.
