The Spark? (Russia/Georgia Conflict)  
So today Russia invaded neighboring country Georgia, who the US has been pushing to join NATO due to our strong allience and the support they've given the US military in Iraq. My question is could this possibly be the spark for WWIII? Obviously the best stand point the US could have at this point is stay the fuck away considering our economic status and war in Iraq, and our past with Russia. However, this hasn;t been the case. Georgia has asked the US to ship their troops home from Iraq to help fight the war in their home country. The US has demanded both countries cease fire and reconsile their differeces with the UN Security Commitee, staying away is obviously not our stand point. Both countries are playing the blame game in this case. Now that the US is involved politically, what's to say they won't soon be involved militarily? If this US goes to war with Russia, it is all bad news. We are no longer the bad ass of the world, we rely too much on the middle east to make those kinds of claims. That's my 2 cents.

This war is informational war in first order. If to load any news site of Osetia or Russia (4 example Russia Today TV, Oseita's news sites are blocked by Georgia hackers now (DDOS attacks), so some later), U will see almost opposite news. It seems, US don't want to end "cold war" (and BBC and CNN shows US version of "news"). And evening thousands of killed inhabitants of Osetia, killed by Georgia troops, are insignificant losses. By version of Osetia's side aim of Georgia's president is genocide of people of Osetia (it is 3 bloodly attempt since 1992 year). Now
