Considering that Russia invaded a sovereign nation…

August 13th, 2008

…you’d think I’d have no problem coming up with something to write about.

But, viagra sales sickness to tell you the truth, clinic I think the U.S. invading Iraq makes it tough to feel all morally righteous about what’s happening in Georgia.

Yes, I know there’s a difference between what we did in Iraq and what the Russians are doing in Georgia, but, honestly, I’m not sure there’s a big enough difference.

    Thats why I’ve been quiet on the subject myself.

    Upon further thought, I’d say I have to agree. We were merely protecting our interests. Isn’t that what Putin and Medvedev are doing?

    And I kind of figured Nick would comment on this one as well.

    Andrew Sullivan had an interesting response to the question about differences between what we did in Iraq and what the Russians are doing in Georgia.

    Just imagine if the press were to discover a major jail in Gori, occupied by the Russians, where hundreds of Georgians had been dragged in off the streets and tortured and abused? What if we discovered that the orders for this emanated from the Kremlin itself? And what if we had documentary evidence of the ghastliest forms of racist, dehumanizing, abusive practices against the vulnerable as the standard operating procedure of the Russian army – because the prisoners were suspected of resisting the occupying power?

    I don’t have to imagine it. The USSR ran that way for decades and no one did anything about it then, why would they get excited about it now?
