Georgia Diminishes BHO as International Leader

I guess I should mention something about Russia invading Georgia however I am in a “wait and see what happens next” mode.

Simply it looks like the Philistine Giant Goliath is imposing a regional hegemonic will on smaller pro-Western/American David. Will little David’s allies confront Russia or will little David have to find that miracle smooth stone to whack Goliath in the head alone?

Anyway the
Commentary blog known as contentions has managed quite nicely to demonstrate that Barack Hussein Obama’s statement on the crisis proves he is not ready to take on the reigns of the most powerful in nation in the world in an international crisis.

I always thought a spark would enflame into a global conflict. I was thinking Israel/USA having sparks with Iran. Another scenario is Israel having sparks with Hezbollah which might spread into Syria and ultimately bring Iran in the mess.

If you look at a map, you will notice is in a strategic area between Russia and the Middle East. Also note that Georgia is hot to join NATO. And then note that Georgia has been lobbying internationally to have oil pipelines by pass Russia to go through Georgia, then Turkey supplying Europe. This would eliminate Russia as the controlling middle man.

There are a lot sparks here to set off a global forest fire that would force appeasement minded EU to man-up where they stand vis a vis America or Russia.
