It's beginning to look like this, just like Israel in 2006, a war that Bush could have prevented instead of encouraged. What a fucking ass hole http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/11/world/europe/11scene.html?_r=1&th&emc=th&oref=slogin It was the question of the day. As Russian forces massed Sunday on two fronts, Georgians were heading south with whatever they could carry. When they met Western journalists, they all said the same thing: Where is the United States? When is NATO coming? Since the conflict began, Western leaders have worked frantically to broker a cease-fire. But for Georgians so boisterously pro-American that Tbilisi, the capital, has a George W. Bush Street diplomacy fell far short of what they expected. Even in the hinterlands, at kebab stands and in farming villages, people fleeing South Ossetia saw themselves as trapped between great powers. Ossetian refugees heading north to Russia gushed their gratitude to Dmitri A. Medvedev and Vladimir V. Putin, the Russian leaders. Georgians around Gori spoke of America plaintively, uncertainly. They were beginning to feel betrayed. Tell your government, said a man named Truber, fresh from the side of the Tbilisi hospital bed where his son was being treated for combat injuries. If you had said something stronger, we would not be in this. He had not slept for three days, and he was angry at himself, at Georgia, but mainly at the United States. If you want to help, you have to help the end, he said.
