Russia Shows Its Color

And it seems to be red. Russia’s overreaction to Georgia’s move to take South Ossetia is ominous. My first college research paper was a history paper on the rise and fall of the Soviet Union, and I’ve wondered for awhile if Mr. Putin wasn’t looking for an opportunity to return to those dark days. The way the people of Georgia are fleeing in terror from Russia’s aggression is a warning of what could grow to something much worse. Those of you who cry, “Peace, not war! Let’s just sit down and talk about this”…. Of course. We’ll have to wait a bit longer to see where this is heading, but our historically ignorant culture forgets that after Neville Chaimberlain confidently proclaimed “peace for our time,” Hitler began to cut a horrifying swath.
