Quick point 2

What with the banks getting handouts for behaving badly, it should come as no surprise that Europe and the US are giving generously to Georgia. But, somehow it does. Together, both states are giving a total of 1.2 trillion euros to the stricken place. This is clearly outrageous. Georgia started the war and lost. Clearly, geopolitical considerations play a major role in this appalling decision but what kind of message does it send out to the world? Start a war if you're on the 'international community's side and either way you'll win.
