HAVE WE ABANDONED ANOTHER FRIEND? While main stream television and the news services like Associated Press, publish articles proclaiming that the USA cannot do anything to stop the naked aggression in Georgia by the Russian "Bear". The cries of betrayal seem to have fallen on deaf ears here in the U.S.
Anne Gearn leads off her article about our only friend and comrade in arms in Iraq, with these words: "As a Russian jet bombed fields around his village, Djimali Avago, a Georgian farmer, asked me: “Why won’t America and Nato help us? If they won’t help us now, why did we help them in Iraq?…nbsp; Later in her article she sums up why she takes the position that the United States can do nothing but talk,
"Bush has put Moscow on notice that U.S. relations with Russia would suffer if the conflict continued, but Russian leaders know that Washington needs their cooperation on a host of world problems. They know, too, that the American public has no stomach for war in an obscure corner of the globe and that Bush will be out of a job in five months.
If most Americans have decided that aggression against one of our allies is to be ignored, we are already at the point of being a nation that nobody and no nation fears to offend or attack. The phrase, "better red than dead comes to mind!
A similar sense of betrayal coursed through the conversations of many Georgians here yesterday as their troops retreated under shellfire and the Russian Army pressed forward to take full control of South Ossetia.
As a Russian jet bombed fields around his village, Djimali Avago, a Georgian farmer, asked me: “Why won’t America and NATO help us? If they won’t help us now, why did we help them in Iraq?…nbsp;
Perhaps our nation wouldn't be so willing to stand by and watch the Russians begin their take over of the freedom seeking people of the counties located along the Baltic Sea - Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania that are known as the Baltic States. These three countries were occupied and annexed by the Soviet Union in 1940 but gained their independence again when the Soviet Union fell in 1991. If the USA media had not been the mouth piece for the anti-Vietnam and Anti-Iraq war leftists in this country.
We are rapidly approaching the state of obsolesencence and anemic defeatism!!!
