The last couple of weeks escalating conflict in the Caucasus between Russia and Georgia have left me thinking. By the comments on blogs and such alike one quickly notice a clear divergence in opinions between pro-Russian and anti-Russian surges. I personally lack sufficient knowledge in order to pick side, and hence I will just shrug my shoulders and denote it as a simple struggle between primitive barbarians. Anyone who recognise my type of behaviour…?
[Being that ‘barbaric’ means, loosely, “not speaking my language” (see wikipedia) I can regard the whole bunch over in the Caucasus as barbarians, Russians as well as Georgians. And I furthermore see them as primitive, as they seem to be incapable to adapt to the modern world. Do not two world wars and a cold war discourage these people from conflicts like this?]
