Did US officials know about Georgia’s plans to attack its breakaway region? The issue deserves a special hearing in the US Congress, according to American political commentator Pat Buchanan.
It’s like the Cold War – US diplomat
‘We are not used to having democracies attacked’, says former US Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage. He says Washington didn’t encourage Georgia to start the war.
Syria: we’ll host Russian missile system
Syria says it’s ready to put a Russian missile system on its soil as a counterweight to U.S. plans to deploy a missile shield in Poland and the Czech Republic. The offer was made during a meeting between Syrian leader Bashar Al-Assad and President Dmitry Medvedev in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.
Georgia is boosting military offensive potential – Russia
Russia is very concerned about the recent growth of Georgia’s military potential, according to the Deputy Chief of Russia’s General Staff, Colonel General Anatoly Nogovitsyn.

Thanks everyone for your comments.
Great Job!!! You are the only one that I have heard of so far that gets it in Eastern Europe. Why does everyone dump on Russia on this one. The only thing of note that ever came from Georgia is a man by the name of Айозиф Виссарайонович Джугашвили ( Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili), aka “Uncle Joe”, aka “The man of steel”, aka Joseph Stalin. Yes Russia had many problems, but it is trying to dump its communist past. Putin may seem despotic to us in the west, but Russians today enjoy greater freedom than they have ever known. Why aren’t we trading more with them instead of the despotic Chinese who are trying to poison us. Missiles in Poland (even if defensive not nuclear) sounds somewhat like Cuba (circa 1963) in reverse. China conquered Tibet (which is known for the Dalia Lama, a man of peace), Russia defended it’s people in Georgia who is only known for Stalin who many consider the second most evil man in history after Hilter ( and some consider him worse).
I normally hate “Diplomatic solutions”, but in this case we should either stay out of this conflict or negotiate with Russia. Georgia’s attack should disqualify them for entry into NATO. I know some “Orange” (pro-west) Ukrainians that normally don’t like Putin that agree with Russia’s actions in Georgia. Thank you for letting me this off of my chest. Sincerely, Randy

In my opinion, Armitage is a snake. He reminds me of Arlen Spector and of the way McCain used to be – he wants you to think he’s a reasonable guy, but then when it comes down to it, he’s pushing the neocon line.
Remember, he’s the one who outed Plame – claimed it was an accident – yeah, some accident. Here,in this interview, he pretends that he understands the Russian position, but then is quick to back up the administration’s wildly laughable and yet frightening hyper-confrontation with Russia over Georgia.
