    The foolishness of Bush's war is now coming home to roost.

    Is there any doubt that the warring between Georgia and Russia is do at least in part to the US's agression in Iraq? If Bush had not so blatantly invaded and occupied another nation would not lesser countries have shown better judgement and restraint?

    Having committed our armed forces to this foolish mission has served to expose the limits of our military. Russia knowing that America, over-extended, fighting two intractable wars was in no position to do anything and so was free to take whatever action it chose.

    Bush's words of admonishment to Putin are indeed hollow. For Bush to speak of loss of national respect and international acceptance is the hieght of hypocracy.

    It's seams pretty clear that the new standard bearer of Bush's Neo-Con agenda of world monetary dominace, John McCain gave bad advice to Saakashvili when he gave his paid lobbiest the idea that America would come to his rescue if he started his own aggresion in South Ossetia.

    I don't see how anyone in the Bush Administration can suggest to Russia that they should withdraw from Georgia and keep a straight face.

    So whose fault was it the last time the Russians/Soviets invaded another country? Can you twist and turn and find a way to pin that on Bush, too?

    Is that the only place you have ever heard the phrase "coming home to roost".

    It seams you are only trying to deflect my point by distracting with a refence to J. Wright.

    Russia has not invaded another country for over a hundred years and I don't know who's fault that was, or were you referring to the Soviet Union?

    As for pinning it on Bush, why don't you make a reasoned argument for why my point is not valid?

    If you make mindless posts, like Russia wouldn't have invaded a sovereign nation if we hadn't acted upon a nation that violated it's ceasefire terms. Then I see no problem in posting connections between coming home to roost and J.Wright.

    There's no real difference between the actions of the Soviets in 1979, and the actions of Russia today.

    The Russians/Soviets have a long history of exploiting perceived weaknesses. They correctly deduced that Jimmy Carter would not stop them in Afghanistan. Whether or not they went into Georgia under the assumption that we were too distracted to stop them, the fact that they have stopped and agreed to a withdrawal perhaps shows their judgement was in error.

    It takes even more gull to bring rev Wright into this thread, that's getting so old, it's sickening, are you retarded jreeves? You've hijacked evey thread in this forum with that lame ass vid, try coming up with something new, dam
