Pat Buchanan, conservative commentator and author of Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025? discusses his article “Why Are We Baiting the Bear?” about the Senate resolution declaring Abkhazia and South Ossetia the property of Georgia and demanding a Russian withdrawal; the region’s history since the Soviet breakup, including the 2008 war (in which Georgia was the aggressor, despite what John McCain adviser Randy Scheunemann said); looking for the Senate resolution’s true authors and backers, who are probably from the Georgia lobby; and the heartening cooperation of US oil companies and the Russian government.
