manson_322, regardless of your position on Bush that comment is just insanely ridiculous.

Anyway, on topic, does anybody know what missile/system would have been used by the Georgians to down the Sukhoi's?

These "peacekeeper deaths" are a pretext to invade and a perfect propaganda tool. Peacekeepers often die in hostile regions and rarely does it equate to a land invasion. This is more to do with the disputed territory than anything else. I sure hope this is resolved diplomatically and soon. But hey the US are caught up in Iraq and now the Russians in Georgia, is something else going on here??....

Well there goes the O-Zone, whoever predicted WW3 would start in August is looking to get a gold medal in the prediction event so far.

This is going to turn nasty by midnight... It's already beyond what anyone thought it would escalate to.

Russianboy, your alleigance here is clear, but please i meant no hostility with my comment. If you read carefully, i used hyperthetical context ("would have"). The planes are "reported" to be Su-24's if you check other posts, so please refrain from unecessary inflamotary remarks without any provocation from me...

This is confusing. Who is doing what to whom. Maybe they'll call for a cease fire. Remember the Russians have the "father of all bombs". It's hyperbaric, not nuclear. What if they use it. The Georgians will be vaporized. Hope for a cease fire.
