iowahawk: Diplomatic Breakthru in Georgia: Red-Faced Russian Party Crashers Retreat

The Hawk takes on the Russians and wins! If you laugh at this snippet, go read the rest while sitting near the toilet so that it minimizes the mess you might make.

iowahawk: Diplomatic Breakthru in Georgia: Red-Faced Russian Party Crashers Retreat: "Bowing to a withering barrage of pointed criticisms and strongly-worded letters of reprimand from the international diplomatic community, an embarrassed Russian military today abandoned its attack on the former Soviet republic of Georgia late this afternoon and retreated sheepishly over the Caucasus.

'Look, I don't really know what to say - other than, 'hey, our bad,'' said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in an awkward, shoe-gazing statement to the United Nations. 'Seriously, dude, it just totally wasn't like us to lash out like that. We've been having a couple of bad decades, and I guess we just sort of snapped.'

According to Moscow newspaper Pravda, Lavrov and Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin left several messages on the voice mail machine of Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili offering apologies and help cleaning up the damage from the weekend invasion. Sources say an angry Saakashvili was in no mood for forgiveness.

'Haven't you done enough damage already?' asked a testy Saakashvili, according to a U.S. State Department official. 'Just get out. Come on dude, leave.'"
