Russia invades Georgia

While the focus of the world press is on China and the Olympics (Kudos to the US Women’s Saber team for their medal sweep), the Russians unilaterally invaded the sovereign nation of Georgia.

Here is my theory on the Russian invasion. The Russian military is targeting the oil pipelines that run through Georgia. With summer running down, disrupting that flow of energy to the West will increase the value of Russian oil. It will also increase the influence Russia will have over Europe as the temperatures drop.

Update: AoSHQ points out the differences between Obama and Senator John McCain on this issue. Winner: Senator John McCain.
