Blowback From Bear-Baiting
By Patrick J. Buchanan
Mikheil Saakashvili’s decision to use the opening of the Olympic Games to
cover Georgia’s invasion of its breakaway province of South Ossetia must
rank in stupidity with Gamal Abdel-Nasser’s decision to close the Straits of
Tiran to Israeli ships.
All the Propaganda That’s Fit to Print: The New York Times, Again, Tells It Like It Ain’t
By Sean M. Madden
As part of an all-out Western media campaign to bury the simple fact that

Yeah, I thought Washington’s holier-than-thou “invasions are unacceptable (unless WE engineer them)” statements were too hilarious – and I hadn’t checked in with Jon Stewart yet!
If you own a hypocrometer, it must need major recalibration after this political charade.
Being now the “21st century” should make a difference to despotism? What a hoot! Where’s Rumsfeld the Poet when you could profit by him?
Wonder when Cheney will haul off and call for war? And with what resources? You’d think even the war-drum-beating jingoists of the Bush-Cheney administration could understand that the candy store has closed due to lack of inventory – they, after all, are its looters!
And I don’t know who the scriptwriters are for this particular Capitol Hill Theater production, but either they’re fresh out of sensible dialogue, or the political thespians of Washington aren’t acting – they’re deer-in-Putin’s-headlights and showing the world how ‘crying wolf’ always gets you in the end.
