with all things being considered..... you shouldn't worry really.
the one thing to remember is that this is an election year.
all the official US governmental policies coming in light of Georgia acting stoopid, is tailored to compliment the Republican ideals and thus to promote McCain's campaign.
The Ukraine joining NATO is something for NATO to decide. a single nation like the USA cannot run roughshod over NATO as it does with the UN. the ukraine is in no position to enforce itself and indeed, will have to illustrate a greater allegiance to future relations with NATO-centric states, than those of old mother russia!
Basically, the echoes of the cold war is the only language Bush and fellow wankers know. As such, their control of governance allows them the greatest publicity….. Do not forgeet the tried and tested strategy:
'repeat it enough times, and people will begin to think it is true'.
Expect a lot more of 'the russians are coming' over the next few months.
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
