    Sorry Jeepers I just posted another thread on this. I hope one of the mods or Gunny will delete it. I didn't see yours before I posted it. :eusa_shifty:

    I'll merge the two threads.

    Putin is trying to think logical and asks "Cui Bono?".
    The Ossetian affair resulted in:
    -Russias prestige in the non west increased
    -A fairly big wedge between the actual (not "new Europe") EU and Russia
    -Georgia getting trashed

    While Putin may seem point 2 as negative, he is at a loss to figure out why this attack was done. That a resurgent "aggressive" Russia will likely benifit McCain is quite clear,
    McCains georgian connection would make it even more suspicious, especially in Russian eyes.
    For Obamas and Americas sake I just hope that Putin does not "endorse" him.

    think about it-----you trusted what Bush said--now you are trusting what Putin said. You might wanna rethink who you trust.
