… tongue firmly in cheek,

 

I surely do hope the Russians don’t get lost and mess with  the wrong North Georgia.  Some of them old boys in Franklin and Madison Counties and thereabouts, ain’t folks you want to tangle with.  ’Specially if you piss ’em off by interruptin’ the Braves game.

 

So.  How do Dmitry Anatolyevich and Vladimir Vladimirovich spell ‘Afghanistan’?

Since America tried its hand at Vietnam redux, re-imaginings of your former wars in glamorous new locales has become quite the in thing.

Sigh.

(And could someone actually focus on Afghanistan? There's an actual purpose to that conflict. Many cranky sighs!)

No comment on our relative judgements of those conflicts.

Agreed that there is purpose to the Afghanistan situation.

As for the Kremlin, sod the buggers.

Just saw an MSNBC headline about "rebels" in Georgia, and got it wrong for a bit...

As we go marching through South Ossetia?

You're dangerous.
