The War Under Cover of the Circus


In Georgia today, people are asking, "Where is the Untied States? Where is NATO?"

Well, we know where Bush and Putin are. They're at the games in Beijing.

A war has been declared and people are being killed and not many people seem to be noticing.

Here is one NY Times report, if you can drag yourself away from archery or beach volleyball.

And here is another.

I agree with you wholeheartedly, David. It's a strange, strange world we live in.

This morning one typical Canadian woman called up Bill Not So Good and said, "You know, I planned to boycott the Olympics but then when I saw the Opening Ceremonies I just couldn't turn away and have been watching them ever since."

Oooooh, there's commitment, there's determination, there's a principled human being! Imagine this woman protesting against some store. All they'd need to do is put up signs reading "10% Off Today" and she'd shelve her "principles" like a deck of cards.

That's sooooooooo Canadian isn't it, to have deeply espoused principles ... until said principles interfered with their own pathetic lives in even the slightest way. Then principles quickly get replaced with excuses. Lots & lots of excuses.

Incidentally, in case your readers aren't clear where Georgia is, I invite them to click here.

Lots of reading on the side bars.

Putin's not in China...he left the Games when this glorified invasion started.

Excuse me, but when has the UN been known to be a source of clarity or truth? Not in recent times.

Here's a story that I believe is much closer to the truth of what's going on. And anyone who doesn't think that the timing is deliberately during the Olympics should be drinking much more coffee!! (that's my polite way of saying it)

Putin is simply the new Tzar of all the Russias.

All he is doing is putting his 'empire' back together.

Like anything broken, it can be 'fixed'.
