Why There Won't Be Another Georgia-like Conflict After 2008

Terabytes have been published about the Georgia conflict. Many say that the US is responsible. Bush has been pushing to get Georgia into NATO, has been lavishing praise upon them, and has all but coaxed them into fingering Russia. If he hadn't pumped them up so much, this conflict would not have taken place. Why did Bush encourage Georgia so much?

The real reason, which no one talks about, is this - Bush thinks the country is named after him. George-Georgia.

The reason such a conflict will not be repeated, is that there are no countries called Barackia or Johnstan.
