Despite agreeing to a ceasefire, both Russian and Georgian leaders are continuing their war of words.
To make the situation worse, United States President Bush has poked his nose in where the sun doesn’t shine, by offering military and food aid to the Georgians. Also, to Russia’s anger, the US have recently signed a deal with Poland to site missiles in that country, in the name of ‘protecting their interests’ against so-called rogue states.
Meanwhile, in between this macho “who can piss the highest” posturing, the United Nations, the European Union countries and the rest of the world sit idly by, humiliated and divided. I would hate to be still alive on this earth when there may be a genuine world war.
