hey russia: fuck you. love lidia

ok so YES i know the U.S — meaning “us” — should keep its fucking trap shut when it comes to discussions of, i don’t know, say, INVADING OTHER COUNTRIES to secure REGIME CHANGE, KILLING CIVILIANS, and partying down at the olympics when people are DYING as direct results of our policies and actions, and YES i know the georgians took some fairly outrageous provocations steps no doubt banking on both russia’s response but also the international community’s attention, but still. yo. russia. bite my twat.

i had relatives in lithuania who spent wonderful years in siberia.

love lidia

  1. There is a critical artery of an oil pipeline that runs through Georgia. The disputed region is predominately muslim.
    Stop me if you’ve heard this one before…

    If history can’t stop repeating itself, maybe it could find something else to repeat, because I’m bored.

  2. It is a scary situation because Georgia is one of America’s big allies in Iraq (3rd highest number of foreign troops in country, until we helped ship them back to Georgia recently) but yet we can’t really step in and help them (which they are essentially begging for) because we are stuck in Iraq and cannot risk world war 3 with Russia. It especially bad politically because it sends the message to young democracies (that are apparently the best, and what we are trying to build around the world) that if you get invaded we won’t help you, in spite of our apparent Rome like Imperial “power.” Plus we apparently need Russia diplomatically in regard to the “issues” with Iran and wanting to wipe Israel off the map.

    And yes Lid, we have no leg to stand on in terms of respect for national borders. Have we ever? Even in other issues like nuclear proliferation? To bad for Georgia, not to mention Chechnya. Russia wants its empire back and our empire is crumbling. Free Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, Iraq. Will they want Alaska back? Gave us a good price for it.
