REPUBLICANS RUN FROM RUSSIANS
"BRING IT AWN" BUSH HUMILIATES US NAVY. AGAIN. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
MCCAIN ABANDONS GEORGIAN CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTORS AFTER GETTING HIS HEADLINES
"Russia Threatens Nuclear Attack On Europe Invades Georgia"
Weak On Defense, Weak On Foreign Policy, GOP Weakens America In The Eyes Of The World
George "Dubya" Bush lost Abkhazia and S. Ossetia to Vladimir Putin's crypto-Communist-KGB regime this week. Thanks to the Republican President who allowed 9/11, Georgians loyal to the West are now back under Russian rule, just like in Stalin's time. Can a new Soviet Empire be far behind? Is the Cold War back on? Has Bush already lost the war to a brutal new Communism under another name, just as he lost the War on Terror to Bin Ladin?
The U.S. Navy hardly dares to go into the Black Sea. A U.S. Coast Guard boat loaded with relief supplies for the victims of the Russian invasion, our beleaguered Georgian allies, has run from the Red Fleet, sailing off for a safer port. NATO has been effectively been kicked out of one Eastern European country. Can Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia, Albania, Romania, Bulgaria, or the Ukraine be far behind?
A new Iron Curtain of fear and intimidation is already descending upon those former Soviet satellites, all thanks to George W. Bush and his surrogate, John Sidney McCain III. Bush & McCain's wild promises to the Georgians and others (which they had no intention of living up to), and the foolish Bush/ McCain provocations of the Russians (whom they did not have the stomach to fight) have led to a complete and possibly permanent loss of U.S. power and influence in the region. Bush & McCain started a game of chicken with Putin & Medvedev and they lost: Under the Republican Party, we are now the chickens, for the first time in our history.
Meanwhile, nuclear-missile-armed Islamic State Pakistan slips into chaos and out of U.S. influence. Afghanistan and Iraq are sick of the losing wars of Bush/ McCain. China is eclipsing the United States as a superpower, forcing us to back off on Burma and Tibet, the Uighers and the Mongols, Darfur and Zimbabwe. Our deal to control nukes in India is falling apart. North Korea has made fools of Bush/ McCain. No one in the world, it seems, respects or fears U.S. power any more, after eight long disastrous years of Bush/McCain.
The Democrats may be our only hope of restoring American power and influence. But first they will have to survive the traitorous, disloyal, unpatriotic attacks of the un-American Republicans. Are you starting to see who America's enemies are? I'll spell it out: Bush & McCain are America's worst enemies: All talk and no competent action. All bluster and no fight. All brag and no balls. And the world now knows it. You call that "strong on Defense"? Maybe you're a traitor, too. Or, as we now call them, a Republican.

"US and Russian warships line up in dispute over Georgia"
' With the Russians effectively controlling Georgia's main naval base of Poti, Moscow also dispatched the Moskva missile cruiser and two smaller craft on "peacekeeping" duties at the port of Sukhumi on the coast of Abkhazia, the breakaway region that the Kremlin recognised as independent yesterday. The Americans, wary of escalating an already fraught situation, cancelled the scheduled docking in Poti of the US Coast Guard vessel, the Dallas, and instead sent it to the southern Georgian-controlled port of Batumi, 200km (124 miles) from the Russian ships, where it delivered humanitarian aid. '
"Russia warns NATO as West fumes over Georgia"
' Russia moved its own naval forces to the Abkhaz port of Sukhumi, where they got a rapturous reception from Abkhaz leader Sergei Bagapsh, who downed a toast from an ornate drinking horn with Russian officers. On a visit to Ukraine, also seen as vulnerable to Russian intervention, British Foreign Secretary David Miliband stressed the West was not interested in a new Cold War and said President Dmitry Medvedev had "a big responsibility not to start one." However he also sounded a conciliatory note, saying it would be "counter-productive" to isolate Russia as it was too "enmeshed" in the world economy. Miliband was nonetheless lambasted by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, reflecting sensitivities around Ukraine, which in trying to join NATO and is burdened by hosting the centuries-old base for Russia's Black Sea fleet at Sevastopol. '
"Moscow’s plan is to redraw the map of Europe"
' Any doubts about why Russia invaded Georgia have now been erased. By illegally recognising the Georgian territories of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, Dmitry Medvedev, Russia’s president, made clear that Moscow’s goal is to redraw the map of Europe using force. This war was never about South Ossetia or Georgia. Moscow is using its invasion, prepared over years, to rebuild its empire, seize greater control of Europe’s energy supplies and punish those who believed democracy could flourish on its borders. Europe has reason to worry. Thankfully, most of the international community has condemned the invasion and confirmed their unwavering support for Georgia’s territorial integrity and sovereignty. Our first duty is to highlight Russia’s Orwellian tactics. Moscow says it invaded Georgia to protect its citizens in South Ossetia. Over the past five years it cynically laid the groundwork for this pretence, by illegally distributing passports in South Ossetia and Abkhazia, “manufacturing” Russian citizens to protect. The cynicism of Russia’s concern for ethnic minorities can be expressed in one word: Chechnya. '
"Obama, with Biden on ticket, beats White House in condemning Russia"
' In his statement, issued around 2 p.m. EDT Tuesday, Obama said the White House should call for a U.N. Security Council meeting to condemn Russia's action. About 45 minutes later, the White House issued a statement from President Bush, vacationing at his ranch in Crawford. He too condemned the Russian ploy, saying, "We expect Russia to live up to its international commitments." '
"Putin alleges Bush orchestrated Georgia war to get McCain elected as next Prez"
' According to the paper, the Georgia conflict has become a flash point in the US presidential campaign, with McCain assailing the “revanchist Russia” and asserting that he was far more qualified to handle such a crisis than his rival the Democratic candidate Senator Barack Obama. In an interview with the CNN, Putin suggested that the US pushed Georgia toward war and added that he suspected a connection to the American presidential campaign. Putin’s comments sought to present the military operation as a response to brazen, cold war-style provocations by the US. A seemingly angry looking Putin suggested in the interview that the Bush administration may have tried to create a crisis that would influence American voters in the choice of a successor to President Bush.
