The Insanity Spreads

It seems that the president of Georgia wants to know, right now, how we lost Georgia:
Asked if the White House was doing enough, he said: “I just spoke to President Bush. Frankly, some of the first statements were seen as a green light for Russia. They were kind of soft.”

He said, “Georgia is the first test case.”

He said the United State should be doing more. “We should realize what is at stake for America; America is losing the whole region,” he said.

“Who else can stand up for liberty in the world?”
Wow, we're losing the entire region! And, of course, that's downright shameful. After all, it's part of the world, so I suppose God must've deeded it over to us.

It's important to keep in mind, though, who "us" is. I'm fairly sure that the intended beneficiaries of the unholy hybrid of state/corporate mercantilism/militarism don't include you or me.
