    Ok so Georgia wanted to break away from Russia and they did. Now South Ossetia wants to break away from Georgia, but that isn't ok...

    Georgia, a staunch U.S. ally, has about 2,000 troops in Iraq, making it the third-largest contributor to coalition forces after the U.S. and Britain. But Saakashvili told CNN that the troops would be called home Saturday in the face of the South Ossetia fighting.


    that's gonna hurt for a minute

    Well I don't support Russia cause I'm sure they just want South Ossetia for themselves, I do think Georgia should also bugger off.

    Would be nice to see Abkhazia and S Ossetia put Saakashvili in his place.

    Having Mikhail Saakashvili, elected Georgian president, promising to recover lost territories is no different then having a reformed USSR promising to recover lost territories, or China for that matter.

    Georgia doesn't want to be a part of Russia thats fine that is their right. South Ossetia and Abkhazia don't want to be a part of Georgia, just as fine, that is their right so **** off Georgia.

    The world doesn't need another East Timor / Indonesia **** up.

    Well now that Georgia has withdrawn from South Ossetia hopefully this can all end. Hopefully Russia doesn't push further and hopefully Russia will assist South Ossetia in rebuilding and then withdrawl. Hopefully Georgia won't attack them again and will be smart enough to release them like 99% of the people living in South Ossetia want.

    WASHINGTON Vice President Dick Cheney says Russia's military actions in Georgia "must not go unanswered."

    Cheney spoke Sunday afternoon with Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili. "The vice president expressed the United States' solidarity with the Georgian people and their democratically elected government in the face of this threat to Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity," Cheney's press secretary, Lee Ann McBride, said.

    Cheney told Saakashvili "Russian aggression must not go unanswered, and that its continuation would have serious consequences for its relations with the United States, as well as the broader international community," McBride said.
    Hmmm....
