Russia Is Dangerous

There are many out there who believe that we should all just get along and have a peaceful world. Let us forgive their ignorance of history and man's nature and move forward.

Russia is pummeling Georgia into oblivion, even while Georgia waves the white flag. What do the two main presidential candidates have to say about the issue:

John McCain:
Today news reports indicate that Russian military forces crossed an internationally-recognized border into the sovereign territory of Georgia. Russia should immediately and unconditionally cease its military operations and withdraw all forces from sovereign Georgian territory. What is most critical now is to avoid further confrontation between Russian and Georgian military forces. The consequences for Euro-Atlantic stability and security are grave.

The government of Georgia has called for a cease-fire and for a resumption of direct talks on South Ossetia with international mediators. The U.S. should immediately convene an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council to call on Russia to reverse course. The US should immediately work with the EU and the OSCE to put diplomatic pressure on Russia to reverse this perilous course it has chosen. We should immediately call a meeting of the North Atlantic Council to assess Georgia’s security and review measures NATO can take to contribute to stabilizing this very dangerous situation. Finally, the international community needs to establish a truly independent and neutral peacekeeping force in South Ossetia.

Barry Soetoro Barack Obama:

"A genuinely neutral mediator — not the Russian government — must begin a process of negotiations immediately."

Will the real leader place take a is obvious who is willing to take a stand when called upon.

BTW:What is the deal about Barack Obama being Barry Soetoro?
