On the ongoing Russia-Georgia conflict (don't call it a war!):

Ed: i mean, I hate russia too
and I think that this is a very bad development
but I am not at all convinced that we should be getting into a shooting war with the Russians.
war with russians never turns out well for anyone
laurie: Yes, that went badly last time.
Ed: surely we've learned that much
laurie: Also, it went on forever
Who has two decades to waste on a national pissing match now?
We all need to unite, and gang up on china.
