Georgia: Is it just me?

Maybe I am just nuts but this feels like deja-vu.

Anyone else think this is getting like post WWII and the 50s and 60s?

Anyone else concerned about the sabre-rattling coming out of the USA?

Anyone else aware that in spite of the treaty which precluded future development of nuclear arms, there are still enough in Russia and the USA to destroy the world, oh, I dunno, maybe 3 times over?

I find it all rather bothersome.

    I find it amusing that the US is DEMANDING that Russia be punished for invading Georgia.
    Last time I checked the US were invading/occupying/liberating at least 3x more countries
    I also find it annoying that the US refuses to sign Japans petition to disarm the world of nuclear weapons.
    But yes, I do agree, it all seems very post WWII to me. Actually if you do your reading about the events that lead up to WWI it also seems very familiar.

    Like you Kyte, I grew up in the Cold War. My father (who passed away recently) always worried about the next World War destroying everything.

    Frankly, I’m more optimistic about the future of the world now than I have ever been. We need to address sustainability issues re the environment and the economy, but generally speaking I think we’re looking good.
