Russia invades Georgia while the West watches. How did it come to this?

For the best possible illustration of why Islamic terrorism may one day be considered the least of our problems, look no further than the BBC's split-screen coverage of Friday's Olympics opening ceremony. On one side, fireworks sparkled, and thousands of exotically dressed Chinese dancers bent their bodies into the shape of doves, the cosmos, and so on. On the other side, gray Russian tanks were shown rolling into South Ossetia, a rebel province of Georgia. The effect was striking: Two of the world's rising powers were strutting their stuff.

Is this it then? Is Russia back to being an aggressor? Is Putin their true leader?
Will China and Russia become the world's two new superpowers? Will the USA get the short end of the stick? Is our political RP coming true?

No, we're sending all our illegals. The russians can draft them to help kill the georgians.

Aren't you confusing possession of illegal substance with being an illegal? o_o

So now Russia's officially announced a pull back of forces. Let's see if it happens.
