Forever Under Construction

The Narrative

Posted in News by homeyra on August 12, 2008

Just a few days after Georgia launched an offensive to regain control over the separatist Georgian province, the “official” narrative has become:

No matter how this conflict started, Russia has escalated it well beyond the dispute over South Ossetia.

Does that mean that those delicate souls, who are offended by Russia’s “disproportioned response”, consider Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine and the massive US armada heading for Iran, as well-proportioned ones”?

I wonder if the “he acted alone, then committed suicide” episode will fit somewhere in that story.

    That was my impression too! What Ms. Rice was going to say regarding Russians action against Georgia! “You can’t be invading another country!” I’m wondering if she can keep a straight face while issueing such a reaction!

    Rice is where she is because she has no problem keeping a straight face while telling the most apocalyptic whoppers of all time. It’s almost all that has come out of her mouth since * took office in 2001. Welcome to my world, Bijan.

    Was going to sleep, but must write this.
    Just saw Rice on BBC.
    She said that the US and Europe were eager to welcome Russia in their community but Russia’s behavior didn’t make it possible… Georgia’s infrastructure is going to be rebuilt by the US, but what about Russia’s reputation?
    The interviewer bought it all. Rice not only had a straight face, but a huge smile!
