U.S. weighing what to do next about Russia [Nothing]

President Bush declared Friday that the United States and its allies "stand with the people" of war-torn Georgia against Russian "bullying and intimidation." He then left Washington for a 10-day vacation at his Texas ranch.

Bush's departure — along with the fact that Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Adm. Michael Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, also are on vacation...

'first serious crisis internationally since the end of the Cold War' that McCain would have you believe that it is.

The hype is a product of the fact that the USA is indebted to Georgia for being the third largest power in the coalition is Iraq (smirk) as well as having previously bought one of McCain's advisers who is a lobbist.

This administration's action speak louder than their words and the truth is evident in their behavior. I doubt Bush ans so many senior officials would go on vacation if this was truly a 'serious international crisis".

I quite agree. It is sad but true. In the past If you were an Ally of the U.S. you would recieve the full support If you were attacked by another country. Now it seems the reward of being an Ally is to have the U.S. president wave his finger at the enemy and Say" Stop being a bully" and instead of dispatching the military might of their armed forces, they send Planes full of band-aids and food. What it says to the world is that the United States of America is no longer the superpower it once was, and is too scared to pick a fight with a recently re-juvinated USSR. The balance of power is definately shifting, and Russia is flexing it's muscle and shining light to the fact that It is now in control in that part of the region, no matter what any other country says or threatens to say. Unless the Draft is brought back in the U.S., I don't think that they (the U.S.) could survive economically another military campaign...
