Let’s Forget About The Olympics…Just for A Moment

Yes, the Olympics is exciting, but let’s just forget about it for a few seconds because there’s a looming World War on the horizon. The war right now is between Georgia And Russia; both sides are blaming each other :re the initiation of the fight, and so the battle continues.

If it doesn’t deescalate soon; this will inevitably become a World War III, which will have consequences for the whole world. Even one CNN reporter mentioned it, but still everyone is too concerned with John Edwards‘ extra-martial affairs and The Olympics…fair enough right?

I need not repeat what is already being said so I’ll just find what is being said around the Internet re: the war:

    This war just seem to have popped out of nowhere! But in this world we live in, wars will be one place after the other. My heart goes out to all the innocent ones caught up in the cross fire. Maybe people are caught up with less trivial things, because these minor things are easier to cope with and takes away their attention from the horrors of war, thus giving them a pseudo peace of mind.
