"Peace For Our Time"

FORT DE BREGANCON, France - The United States warned sternly Thursday of a long-term rupture with Russia if Moscow does not quickly abide by its promise to withdraw its fighting forces from Georgia. In contrast to the tough talk, Condoleezza Rice rushed to the former Soviet republic with a new cease-fire plan offering concessions to Moscow.

The new document would allow Russian peacekeepers who were in the disputed South Ossetia region before the fighting broke out a week ago to stay, and they would now be permitted to patrol in a strip up to six miles outside the area, U.S. officials said. But that allowance would be temporary, and details were still to be worked out, the officials said.

"Russian peacekeepers"?!? Well, hell, if only we would've simply called the Nazi regiments in Poland "peacekeepers," that whole nasty war would've been avoidable.

This is so preposterous. Rice is our very own Chamberlain. 

Ladies and gentlemen, I am convinced that we live in the mirror universe. We have leaders that do not learn the lessons of history, and vapid celebutants that, with a little help from a comedy writer, make more sense than anyone in our government. 

Let me know when the next wormhole back to reality opens up. I want to go back!
