The situation benefitted McCain quite a lot, since the attack took place while Obama was on vacation. McCain appeared every day in the press, speaking
about the conflict.
I would say it brought him back into the spotlight. And I believe Putin is on to something. Does it really seem smart to assume that the Georgians
were just crazy and went to attack Russian civilians for no reason? I dont think so. This was a plan. Someones plan. And its still unfolding.
You know another thing I found interesting? When the first attack happened, I heard a CNN reporter talk about the conflict and he used the term
"nobody wants a cold war yet" and then quickly changed it to "nobody wants a cold war again".
Now, a couple of weeks later, we hear talk in the media about how a new cold war may be forming. Coincidence?
I think people need to get out of the mindset that things "just happen". Somebody makes these things happen and its not because they wake up angry
one day and decides to attack something randomly.

And we just might be the ignorant sheeple, while everyone and their dog in media are in the know, yet we the hard working individuals, raising
families, caring about the future of our children rarely get any enlightenment from things going on behind closed doors.
It is our future for Gods sake. Things like that make me mad.
Sorry for the double quote.
