If the morons in Washington keeps trying to provoke Russia hell possibly. Why is the USA rather then playing the negotiater why the hell we gotta jump in and take sides which makes matters worse? Why the hell do we have to send aid in warships? How the hell would we respond if we have the Soviet Union surrounding our country like Nato surrounds Russia? We need to pull out of Nato man as aggressive as Georgia is we should be thanking God they wasnt in Nato when they launched that barbaric attack on Russia. We got people like Sarah Paulin saying, "Georgia is in Nato and they get attacked it is the US duty to defend them." This is scary Russia is not Iraq they aint no push over country. Hell I wouldnt even be surprised if a draft went on if we go to war with them. Sarah Paulin didnt even try to offer some type of negotiation she goes straight into attack mode. We are not all Georgians as Mccain said we need to stop butting into other peoples affairs making matters worse. Now you wonder why the US reputation is not good around the world.


Thats why Venezuela, Iran and Russia or maybe China is anti west sometimes. If there is a cause of World War, i think the UN should condemn it and not sitting like a duck watching the conflicts being carry on. Or some people may risk UN is corrupted. I just hope not.

The UN has almost no power to intefere in wars. Even their "peacekeeping" forces have strict limitations on thei interactions.

And let the world paid off and get struck by lightning? While we people watch the news about the conflict carry on and we stand there helplessly. I hope United Nations got enough power to eradicate war.

Please for the love of god, don't give into the bias of our media! South Ossetia has a right to Self-determination, please recognize that Russia is protecting the rights of the South Ossetians. Don't let our government get into another conflict with Russia. Georgia is the aggressor, our government only wants another ally in NATO. Please be aware, do research, don't give in to any media, don'


This topic is from Jadegreen27



South Ossetia is not a state. It is a part of Georgia. The people of South Ossetia do have a right to create their own nation, but not be ceasing Georgia’s territory as they attempted in 1991. Georgia attempted in 2008 to reoccupy its own territory and Russia, which has personal interest in South Ossetia, invaded Georgia and occupied South Ossetia. With little concern for civilian life, Russia began bombing Georgian cities. Russia is the only major nation to acknowledge South Ossetia.

What would the United Nations accomplish by condemning anything? The United Nations is innately flawed and has finite international authority when you get right down to it. Personally, I think the United Nations and international law are jokes.

Yeah, the united nations has no real power in the grand scheme of things, They can say not to do something all they want, but if the country wants to do it, it's going to do it. Nothing the UN can do about it, for example, there is this stupid international law that says, no ICBMS(intercontinental ballistic missiles) will be fired, most likely its in place to discourage a nuclear war. But in the event of 2 countries who are pissed enough at each other, i doubt they'd listen to that law for very long.

The UN is a joke, just look at what's happening with North Korea. Sanctions haven't stopped any wars. The UN is too soft and they are too busy trying not to offend people to take a stand on something. Weak politics only leads to wars, like WWII for example. Europe was weak on Hitler, let him be, and then he turned around and made a mess of things. I say abolish the UN, the only good thing they do is aid countries, but we don't need a universal world police of political correctness to do that. Btw, Russia is at fault in the conflict, they only claim that they were "protecting the rights of South Ossetiens." Putin runs the show, and he's got KGB written in his eyes.

I agree with you, and I also think that their laws are frankly absurd and based on naïve idealism. The theory behind the Geneva convention, for example, is a philosophy of mutual reciprocity. Take torture as an example. The hope was that if you treat your capture enemy well they’ll return the favor. However, what happens is the exact opposite. Take the war on terror. America tortures because terrorists torture. The terrorists, on the other hand, apparently torture only because America tortures. International law is idiotic, and I honestly think that when the UN gets involved in politics it exacerbates everything. It should exist only as an international humanitarian aid supplier, and nothing else.
