Russia Is Lost

It would seem that Russia has lost its way back out of Georgia. In spite of announcements that they were withdrawing today, Georgia can't seem to find any evidence that it is taking place.

That is most likely because it isn't.

US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice has ratcheted up the rhetoric to a pretty shrill level, but so far it doesn't seem to be having any effect at all.

Here's something that might work.

First send in a squadron of these:

Two US F-22 Raptors flying in formation over snow-covered mountains

Once they have established air superiority and control send in a squadron of these:

A heavily armed US A-10 Warthog firing an air to ground missile

My guess is that the Russians will quickly remember the way back out of Georgia. Condi wouldn't even have to raise her voice. And of course after the Warthogs show up she might casually mention that if there is not a complete withdrawal of the vehicles and troops that can still move within 24 hours that there will be a division of these put on the ground:

US Marine Corps Flag

But I doubt that it would ever get that far.
