America has been known as a country that does not get the concept of irony. Russia's blitz into Georgia has proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt.
U.S President Bush demanded that Russia end its actions in Georgia because, in his words, "Russia has invaded a sovereign neighboring state and threatens a democratic government elected by its people. Such an action is unacceptable in the 21st century."
One word for President Bush: Iraq
So either Bush did not consider Iraq to be sovereign state or that 2003 was in the 20th century, which do you think is more likely? And the funny thing is that U.S media has played up the fact that Russia attacked Georgia. I find this funny as everyone, including the Georgian government, says that Georgia attack first! How in the world did Georgia become the good guys here?
Irony. A concept America, or at least President Bush, will do well to learn.
