Leonardo"s Notebook by Mattheus Mei

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

Do Nothings

Why are we doing nothing to help the Georgians?


*Bloomberg News

Would the secession of South Ossetia into Russia, already nearly complete by duplicitous acts of the bear giving the people of the disputed region Russian Passports be tantamount to the Appeasement of Hitler in the 1930s? I'd imagine some parallels could be drawn, but there are stark differences.

The secessionists never believed they should be a part of the Georgian Republic. Perhaps it would behoove Georgia to give up territorial claim to the region and the other Russian backed region in order to save its civilians.

It's a difficult choice, but as we know the American government has been neutered and has not the ability to assist in the fight to force Russians back out of Georgian territory even though we and our Western European allies owe it to this a friendly and allied nation to do something more than balk and complain.

A sad day indeed as more innocents die because of the Russia's desire for territorial and economic imperialism.
