Clown show

BBC headline:
US warning to Russia over Georgia
But the text of the report lacks the word 'warning', or anything that resembles it.

Meanwhile, Cheney arose from his coffin to announce:
On Sunday, Vice President Dick Cheney told Georgia's pro-American president that "Russian aggression must not go unanswered, and that its continuation would have serious consequences for its relations with the United States," Cheney's office reported.
I bet that 'Cheney's office' got this little tragedy a-rollin', what with Feckless Leader frolicking in Beijing, and Condi out shopping. The miscalculation and hubris all fits into the pattern of both the Afghan and the Iraqi wars. Hopefully the consequences in human terms will be much less, but that now depends on Russian restraint, and Georgian good sense.
