    Russian APCs are just outside Tbilisi. The US has sent peacekeepers to give humanitarian aid to Georgia... in the middle of a war zone. It's essentially a given that at least one of them will be killed by Russian soldiers or Abkhazians/Ossetians.

    I wish I were there.
    No offense.

    The US is not going to let a democratically elected allied country be overrun without at least a token show of support.

    Bad idea to try to call Putin out IMO. He's going to call America's bluff in a heartbeat seeing as how we're tied down in Iraq and Afghanistan, and we're more reliant on Russia than Russia is on us for the oil.

    It's especially dangerous to fuck with Putin. Honestly, he makes anyone look like a fool on a grand scale.

    I say just let the situation subside. The last thing we want to do is to draw the wrath of the most powerful Ruski.

    Putin doesn't want to throw down with the United States for real. He is doing the traditional Russian leader schtick of testing his boundaries and trying to gobble up territory. Oil prices are dropping, and losing the United States' business would put his own country into complete chaos.

    Lol, that would follow the same line of reasoning that the administration has in the past
