OK, OK, so there’s a whole lot of discussion going on about the important issues of today. We’re all looking to see how many Gold Medals the US athletes will win at the Olympics. We’re all talking about who the Presidential Candidates will pick as their VPs (I hear Paris Hilton wants Rihanna). Oh yes, and there’s something happening in Georgia.
No, I’m not talking about our state Georgia. No, this is the former Soviet republic Georgia where Russian troops have invaded. And already, John McCain is using this travesty to show off his “foreign policy credentials”. He’s strongly condemned the Russian attacks, and he’s proposed aggressive action against Russia… Even throwing them out of the G-8 if they continue their attacks on Georgia. Meanwhile, Barack Obama’s campaign is wondering aloud if McCain’s proposed actions would lead to escalating this conflict… And they’ve already pointed out that one of his top foreign policy advisors had been a lobbyist for the Georgian government.
So what should we do about the Russia-Georgia conflict? And which Presidential Candidate looks more rational on this matter? Do we need to handle this crisis with smart diplomacy? Or do we need agressive action?
Come on, now. You know the drill. Tell me what you think about the new campaign issue of Georgia.
