Comments on: Can the Caucasus flames be controlled? http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2008/08/11/can-the-caucasus-flames-be-controlled/ Beyond the World news headlines Wed, 16 Nov 2016 20:09:42 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Dam Quang Thuan http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2008/08/11/can-the-caucasus-flames-be-controlled/comment-page-2/#comment-1480 Tue, 26 Aug 2008 11:25:09 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2008/08/11/can-the-caucasus-flames-be-controlled/#comment-1480 Now US ships arrived in Georgia/Poti port. If Russians is smart enough, I think they should use their spies in Georgian army to cause a Georgian attack to Russian army. Then Russian army counter-attack.

– Then if US army supported Georgian army by attacking Russian army, Russia can make the case that US intentionally intervene or they were there not to ship aid but take part in the war (proved that they told their Georgian stupid puppets to attack Russian). Then with its strong army base around, ships, strikers, tanks, Russian army can humiliate US army easily. Then what US can do? They are stretched in Iraq, Afghanistan…no way they can win that war (with Russia). It is then apparently a failure for US/EU.

– If US do not counter-attack, Russia would prove to Georgian people that: “hey, idiots, you rely on NATO/US/EU, now what? they are here but we can kill you! They can give you money (like they did all over the world: VN, Nicaragua,Cuba, Iraq/Iran… but that’s that” Georgian people would cry for themselves!

– Then China can take advantage of this situation, they would feel they are now in much better position to do what they want to in several reasons around the world!

For what US have done on VN, Afghanistan,Iraq… after they create false/misleading excuses, their governtment serve this situation.

Now of course it has been made clear that the protection of the West extended not far beyond angry rhetoric. Not quite part of the liberalized elite circle, but not terribly far from it, Georgians must no doubt be suffering from a biting disappointment.

In a burgeoning democratic state, the support of the people for Democracy might likely be on the fringe after such a disappointment. It is not hard to imagine how disappointment might turn to bitterness, doubt, and potentially anger. Is this “mission critical” time to (re)capture the hearts and minds of a beacon of Caucasus Democracy? I believe that, indeed, this might represent an opportunity to put into action a Civil Psychology mission to Condition Democracy in the nation…

For more, look at my blog…

The increasing rhetoric, and saber rattling serves nothing more the useless verbiage. Russia was wrong on invading Georgia, and they know it. It is better to let Russia save face, and let them leave quietly. I think essentially this is what they are trying to do, however if you corner a dog their first instinct is to bite in self defense. It is best for NATO, and all responsible nations such as the United States to back off, stop the unnecessary verbiage, and allow Russia to leave. I can almost bet they will leave in the middle of the night, completely un-noticed and act like nothing ever happened. I further believe they acted with out strategy, they now know this was a foreign policy monumental mistake, sort of like the Bush Administration invading Iraq without an exit plan.

There is no doubt that his behavior is absolutely criminal. Supporting Saakashvili by the West doesn’t help to resolve the situation in Georgia. Neighbors should be friendly. Neither osetians, nor abkhazians will ever agree to reintegrate into Georgia while Saakashvili is in power. Russia is the only country that can ensure stability in this region and territorial integrity of Georgia, provided there is a friendly government in Tbilisi. That what georgian people should think about when they vote for their next president

Well, I would dump war/missile weapons on Venezuela, Cuba in Latin America. The same to Syria, Iran (then Iran help the Palestine)… Shake hands w/ China elsewhere. Then help fire between India and Pakistan. Also help Taliban in Afghanistan (like US did there on Soviet). Ah, Basque in Spain/France also. China should also take advantage of this situation in Latin America, African… You may ask what about EU/NATO? Look at what they did to Gruzia… No Action, Talk Only! Brazil should also take advantage of this in Latin America. Now, we have new order of the World!

Call me cynical but is this why America backed Sakashwilli, trained their troops and pushed him into attacking South Ossetia – to scare the Poles who were wavering into signing?
How would Americans feel if Russia built a missle defence shield on their doorstep or has everyone forgotten Cuba? There is already a missile defence shield in place in the UK which monitors the airspace to the east, could this not have been upgraded rather than intimidate Russia by placing new installations right on their doorstep in Poland and Czech Republic just in case Al Quaida sends missiles.
Mr Bush do you think that we are all stupid?

Finally, there is a force in the world that can resist american imperialism. At least, British robbed India and other colonies of resources. What empire are we trying to build — empire of democracy. Paying for all the moronic wars while our taxes head north and so does the national debt. As American I am glad that there are more forces of power in the world now that can oppose us, because after winning the cold war got our neocons drunk with power. While our country slowly slides into thirld world as all education and economic patterns show. May be some pressure will make us more reasonable and more competitive.
