Georgia on my mind


Cartoon from Nate Beeler (email, blog) from the August 11, 2008 Washington DC Examiner (not to be confused with the Washington Examiner of the SF chain.

Some suggested reading:

  • Background from Human Rights Watch
  • “Die Hard,” John Feffer on Russia as empire, from Foreign Policy in Focus
  • CQ asks if McCain (or his speechwriter) lifted his speech from Wikpedia
  • The Georgian government switches to Blogger to stay online and so does Estonia
  • Aljazeera‘s take on the US part in the mess
  • Business Week on how this affects oil and gas
  • Info from the Pulitzer Center here
  • Fiction writers on Georgia here and here
  • Global Voices cited by CNN
