The U.S. mass media, corporate media, the propagandist machine for the neocons, have been saying that the U.S. should come to the aid of Georgia via military intervention. It isn't going to happen. Russia has nuclear weapons that can reach the U.S. Russia has nuclear weapons that can reach all of Europe.
Georgia has been receiving training and equipment from both the Israelis and the U.S. By getting them to lash out and take a hit from Russia, the U.S. will now push that much harder to put ABM's in Eastern Europe. Above all, the U.S. seeks to nullify Russia's strategic nuclear arsenal. The U.S. wants Antiballistic Missiles as close to their launch points as possible. Aside from Russia's submarines, that's Russian territory.
Russia doesn't have bombers all over the way the U.S. does. Russia has been talking about bombers in Cuba and Venezuela though. They've been thinking way ahead playing chess many moves out.
The deal though is that the propaganda is backfiring on the U.S. media. The people get the word now and quickly. The Georgians just turned on their fellow peacekeepers (Russians) and started shooting them. Think about the reaction if the Mexicans did that to Americans right on the American border.
Well, this is just another terrible plan by the neocons. They are just being exposed and exposed for their sheer evil and stupidity. Evil is stupid you know. It may be crafty and tricky, but that doesn't make it smart.
