Georgia on my mind

The Georgian regime may be seriously questionable but there’s no pleasure in watching them squaring up against a resurgent Russia keen to establish clearly, for an attentive world, that it is now batsh1t insane. The Russian army sometimes kills its own soldiers, for Christ’s sake; what do you think it’ll do to other people? Call as many ceasefires as you want, it’ll just keep on coming. How much do these people want to charge for their gas, again? I’ll get my wallet.

I met a freshly-graduated Russian soldier on the Trans-Sib last week, and tried engaging him on this issue. A nice chap, but his responses were predictably depressing ('I hate Georgia/Baltics because they hate Russia!'), and my attempts to put the other side of the story to him evoked only silence. The Iron Curtain mentality certainly never left the military academy if he's anything to go by.
