Georgia, the Country, not the State

I must say a word about what Russia is doing to the country of Georgia tonight. This started over the weekend and has only gotten worse. While the Georgian government is saying they want a cease-fire and Russia is saying the same, the Russian are not backing up their words with actions that reflect that.

Russia needs to get itself back inside Russia and out of Georgia and any other break-away republics it has entered in the past few days with their military troops. This could spread very quickly to other countries that formerly were a part of the old USSR. It could get so much worse before it gets better.

And make no mistake, even though Putin is now the Prime Minister and not the President, he is still running the show and still very much in control of the country of Russia. He wants nothing more than to put the old USSR back together under communistic rule and that old iron fist.

My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to the people of the Republic of Georgia. May God grant you safety, peace, and an end to these hostilities brought onto your country by Russia. You are struggling and want so badly to be a free country, I just pray that your countrymen and government and the other governments of the West will stand up to these Russians and send them back where they belong.

God Bless you Georgians. This American is behind you.
