Maybe if the Russian general would stop invading a democratic nation and go back home where he belongs, he would not have to worry about tensions.

1. In Geogria there is HalfNazi regime of Saakashivili(most of his real politic oppenents are dead).
2.The invading was necessary. Georian authorities left no possibility to solve this conflict peacefully. Half measures would lead to nothing except more deaths of civilians.

I think you have been reading Pravda too much. Go home and leave the people of Georgia alone.

Akbar, stick to reading the comic book koran and do not stick your finger in a hole which houses unknown perils.

1. I had no idea you could quantify nazism :) Opposition in Georgia is string. Your problem is that there is no pro-russian opposition. First time in centuries Russia has no one in Georgia who would support it.

2. You have no idea what's going on in Georgia. You have been drip-fed all the bad things for the past few years. Georgia is (well, was) booming economically and the standard of living is much higher than the one in Russia. THe problem is that you have quite a few multi-billionaire Russian oligarchs/criminals/politician s that skew the statistics enormously.

So we've got good puppet-opposition, and dead pro-russian opposition. It is very democratic way, I would say american democratic way.=)
Oh, yes, you without any doubts is familiar with the all particulars in Georgia life.
And Russia is very big from the poors to Oligarchs and from Moscow to Vladikavkaz. It is hard to compare standards of life. But I am sure country with such spendings on warfare is unable to increase standard of life.

I propose that the three countries of U.S, Russia

and China divy up the Earth into 3 major areas,

each under the respective controls.
