Protest Against Russia-Georgia Conflict in front of the United Nations

Hundreds of people protested before the United Nations in order to ask for halting the aggression in Georgia by Russia this morning. The Security Council is going to meet at 5 p.m. today. However, regarding Russia's influence in the Security Council it it very unlikely that they change their path and come to any tangible conclusion.... I took the above picture when I was passing by the crowd to go to my office at the U.N.

"Aggression in Georgia by Russia"?
Didn't it started the other way around?

The way it is going forward is far more than what Russians are saying...By the way, probably I should have used another word which make your point clear, and thanks for that. ;)

one more point:


Russian occupation forces have already gone beyond the conflict zone. Until recently Russia limited itself to aerial assaults outside of the boundaries of the conflict zone, however, now the Russian forces are attempting to seize the control of entire Georgia.

But the new standards set by the "free world", makes the definition of a "conflict zone" irrelevant!
Thanks for the update, I think one should always stress the dual criteria applied to "Us" and "them" :)
