It's 1936 -- All Over Again

The Berlin -- er, Beijing Olympics

Is anyone else out there as frustrated and incredulous as I am today? The Olympic games being hosted by Red China once again demonstrates our willingness to place profit above principle.

Have we forgotten the parody of the 1936 games hosted by Nazi Germany? I guess we have.

The Invasion of Poland -- er, Georgia

At the same time, are we seeing the repeat of the Blitzkrieg invasion of Poland from 1939? Russian armorer units pouring over the borders of Georgia is frighteningly reminiscent of this:
And once-again, the world sits by and yawns. This can only encourage Russian (and Chinese) adventurism/expansionism.

History repeats itself... ... once again.
