— U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton rebuked Russia on Monday for failing to live up to the cease-fire agreement it signed nearly two years ago to end the fighting in this small former Soviet state.

She asserted that Russia is occupying parts of Georgia and building permanent military bases in contravention of the truce.

In a news conference with Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili, Clinton pointedly referred to Russian troops as occupiers of the breakaway Georgian territories of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. She said the U.S. was “appalled and totally rejected” Russia’s rationale for the invasion, which temporarily put U.S.-Russian relations in a deep freeze and prompted NATO to suspend cooperation with Moscow.

The USA built 50 military bases in Iraq yet Russia cannot build any in Georgia? Hmmmmmmm

The USA is still waging war in Iraq,Afghanistan,Pakistan and soon to be Yemen. Yet Russia cannot wage war.

The USA government provided the Taliban weapons to fight off Russia in Afghanistan then the USA government moved into Afghanistan and is waging war. Guess the USA government did not want any other government to get close to those oil fields but it is okay for the USA government to do so? IN SPITE of the fact no asked the USA government to do so.

As of now the USA war has produced 35,000 - 40,000 disabled veterans and 7000 dead veterans.

As of now the USA war is breaking the bank aka economy.

Why are we there?
