  • More Russian Paranoia

    http://www.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/europe...war/index.html
    SOCHI, Russia (CNN) -- Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has accused the United States of orchestrating the conflict in Georgia to benefit one of its presidential election candidates.

    In an exclusive interview with CNN's Matthew Chance in the Black Sea city of Sochi Thursday, Putin said the U.S. had encouraged Georgia to attack the autonomous region of South Ossetia.

    Putin told CNN his defense officials had told him it was done to benefit a presidential candidate -- Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama are competing to succeed George W. Bush -- although he presented no evidence to back it up.
    ...
    I love it. Just surprised Putin isnt wearing his tinfoil hat in the pictures.

    I also saw this. Silly Putin.
    The art of war is simple enough. Find out where your enemy is. Get at him as soon as you can. Strike him as hard as you can, and keep moving.

      While I don't think it was orchestrated to benefit one of the candidates, I do entirely think it was orchestrated.

        Wow. Putin you silly man. What he doesnt realize is that i did it. I planned the georgian attack. It was me. It may have been a mistranslation, what he meant to say was:

        "Chris934 did it, we saw him. Its clear that he did it so he could having talking points in the sandbox forums"

              In all seriousness, I am curious as to the exact extent of the US's involvement in Georgia, but more from the aspect of what the State Department is up to. Clearly Putin is angling for a confrontation here, but I have no idea what the end game is. Does Russia really want to see independent or satellite states on the border with Georgia? Or are they just flexing their military might in a demonstration for the EU and NATO?

                Well look at it this way. Right now if Georgia keeps those states and doesnt allow them to become independent then Georgia looks bad. And those states are going to go running to Russia because Russia has acknowledged them as free states. So now Russia has a foot hold closer to oil lines in Georgia. So if they feel something is going go wrong with NATO or Georgia Russia can run in and play "MP" in that area.

                And they are right ready to play that world victim card.
                that sounds like a good idea trooper.

                    There is no doubt that there is US involvement here...and why shouldn't there be? It's in our best interests to maintain influence in that region. The Lil' Bush Administration has certainly not forgotten that.

                      And bush didnt know the difference between "prosecute " and "persecute" so why are you surprised?

                      JK with you i dont take offense, its just that it doesn't underline "sense" as being spelled incorrectly because it thinks i mean the other meaning so i ignore it.

                            90% of spill chucking :p should be done between your ears, not by a computer. The computer should just catch the few times when one deals with a very unusual and sesquipedalian word.

                              It comes built-in in Firefox. In fact, it didn't recognize "sesquipidalian", so I had to add it to its built-in dictionary.
