Some are calling Russia's invasion of Georgia reminiscent of Hitler's invasion of Poland.
As Cal Thomas writes: "Russia's invasion of Georgia on the pretext of 'protecting' Russian peacekeepers stationed in the separatist enclave of South Ossetia and ending the "ethnic cleansing" of native Russians living there, is a sobering reminder that the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989 was not a sign that old-line communists were ready to walk the sawdust trail of repentance and convert to capitalism, democracy, human rights and religious freedom. Quite the contrary."
Vladimir Putin, former head of the KGB, has never renounced communism, and continues to run Russia through his hand-picked successor, President Dmitry Medvedev.
There's been a big push to include Georgia, which was given a new name after U.S. President George Washington, in NATO, which binds all of its members to come to the aid of a member country that is attacked. That would include the United States.
This is no small matter.
