My Hubby posted this for me to read, all the words are his.
short link - This is an account of georgian refugees by a free lance blogger who traveled to georgia on his own dime to get the story. I fear that Ron Paul would hang these people out to dry, but I doubt that the american founders would have. :p
Long link - End of dreams, Return of history: International rivalry and American leadership, hubby found it informative and thought provoking at the same time (and its very long)http://www.hoover.org/publications/policyreview/8552512.html
