I was going to wait and blog my 600th blog in a few days, but thought that I would go ahead and blog with what's been going on in the news this week. For the past week Russia has invaded Georgia with bomb raids killing people there, and for those of you who hasn't been keeping up with the news, I'm not talking about the state of Georgia. As most people know Georgia used to be part of the former Soviet Union until the Soviet Union broke up in 1991, but before that, it was also an independent country before the Soviets took it over in 1921 I believe. Right now there's a providence in northern Georgia that are Russian separates who would love to be part of Russia. Georgia has made some airstrikes in that providence (in Georgia) to try to take out the threats to Georgia. When a cease fire was called upon by Georgia Russia agreed to this, but never honered that agreement. The Russian were still in that country and when asked by the media Russian replied with that they're no longer in that country, when in fact live video shows that they're lying once again to the world. The last two days the Russian tanks have been moving slowly toward that country's capital. Putin wants Georgia's president to step down, or overthrown. The country (Georgia) is allies to the U.S.

What do you think should be done to handle this situation?

I know we're spread a little too thin with our troops over in the middle east, and that's what makes coming up with a solution pretty tricky. If Russia would obey the cease fire that has been in place the last two days then I don't see us or any other country concerning ourselves with this mess. But it's possible that history could repeat itself back in 1917-1924 when Russia took these smaller countries to become known as the Soviet Union before they lost the cold war and broke up in 1991.

Get more peaches! Just kidding. America should try to be as non-interventionist as possible..highly unlikely though since we probably had some hand in it,as always.

Your synopsis is a bit deceiving. The country has rarely been independent. I would let the UN worry about it beyond diplomacy.

Georgia is a transcontinental country in Eastern Europe and partially in Southwest Asia in the Caucasus region. It is bordered to the north by the Russian Federation, to the east by Azerbaijan, to the west across the Black Sea by Ukraine, to the south by Armenia and to the southwest by Turkey. The territory of Georgia covers 69,700 km² and is influenced by a temperate seasonal climate. Georgia’s population excluding Abkhazia and the Tsinkvali region is 4.4 million, nearly 84% of whom are ethnic Georgians.
Two ancient Georgian states were the Kingdoms of Colchis and Iberia. The latter, one of the first countries in the world to adopt Christianity as an official religion early in the 4th century, subsequently provided a nucleus around which the unified Kingdom of Georgia was formed early in the 11th century. After a period of political, economic and cultural flourishing, this kingdom went into decline in the 13th century and eventually fragmented into several kingdoms and principalities in the 16th century. The three subsequent centuries of Ottoman and Persian hegemony were followed by a piecemeal absorption into the Russian Empire in the 19th century. After the Russian Revolution of 1917, Georgia had a brief period of independence as a Democratic Republic (1918-1921), which was terminated by the Red Army invasion of Georgia. Georgia became part of the Soviet Union in 1922 and regained its independence in 1991. Early post-Soviet years were marked by a civil unrest and economic crisis. Georgia began to gradually stabilize in 1995, and achieved more effective functioning of state institutions following a bloodless change of power in the so-called Rose Revolution of 2003. However, Georgia continues to suffer from the unresolved secessionist conflicts in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Relations with Russia remain tense over these issues as well as Georgia’s aspiration of NATO membership. In early August 2008, Georgia was engaged in armed conflict with separatists and the state of Russia.
Georgia is a representative democracy, organized as a secular, unitary, semi-presidential republic. It is currently a member of the United Nations, the Council of Europe, the World Trade Organization, the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation, and GUAM Organization for Democracy and Economic Development. The country seeks to join NATO and, in the longer term, accession to the European Union.

Today ..or was it yesterday.. my days kinda run together.. Russia issued a statement that they were going to refuse to recognize Georgia's borders.

If I remember correctly, I think Georgia had been trying to move in on a country that is allied with Russia, and Russia stepped up. Now, I will totally agree, Russia is going way too far with what they're doing..but, it's not our problem. I know, Georgia is an ally of America's, but, they shouldn't have started something they were not going to be able to handle. We have terrorists to deal with, and our troops are spread thin enough as it is. Let the UN and NATO deal with this is what I say.
