The US has been called in for help?

Oh great.

Holy shit.

This is pretty much exactly what happened in the original Ghost Recon game. Same year too.


I've started playing it again.

They seem to want to join the Northern ~4/5th of their nation, so that's why the language of "let them" in the first option.

And Georgia decided to invade to strong-arm them into compliance, and they chose do to it just when the world won't notice because of the Olympics.  And the world didn't - BBC, CNN, etc kept silent as if nothing was going on.  Then Russia took the bait and rolled in the defense of South Ossetia, and suddenly the western media is like, "wow, where did that come from, big bad Russia attacking poor defenseless Georgia for its vast natural resources"...  :x

Needless to say, this goes a long way in validating a number of other suspicions / conspiracy theories I have...

Did you interview each and every one of them to find out whether they want to participate in a foreign monopoly government?

Their own gov. attacked them.. sounds like leaving for Russia isn't such a bad idea.

And if there were some who wanted to stay.. I'll bet they might not now!

But in Russia, if somebody with connections wants to make those million rubles, they'll expropriate your business.

Not really.  Russia has to behave to attract foreign capital, like any country.

You can bet your ass that nearly all Americans will turn away from any shred of evidence that suggests Russia is justified in what they have done.

I certainly don't have all the details, and think that there is guilt on both sides- but Georgia instigated this battle. Many citizens in that area were actually Russian citizens and Georgia wanted them out because they wanted to secede. So Russia stepped in to protect those citizens even though it was on Georgian soil.

MSM is so shady..

I think there's guilt on all sides, because governments are involved.
