Before freaking over Putin's Teach-Georgia-a-Lesson Invasion, consider this

"The birth rate in Russia is so low that by 2050 their population will be smaller than that of Yemen. Russia has one-sixth of the earth's land surface and much of its oil. You can't control that much area with such a small population. Immediately to the south, you have China with 70 million unmarried men who are a real potential nightmare scenario for Russia." ~From the article, "What in the World is Going On? A Global Intelligence Briefing for CEO's" by Herbert Meyer.

Too bad Russia is doing more pillaging than raping in Georgia or they might have a chance at recapturing their Cold War glory days. Now it's just sort of sad and pathetic.
