Dub,

I can understand the Nazi rationalization, but you are very wrong about Russia. They were expansionist all the way up to the 1980s with Afghanistan. Without the US blocking them, they would have been up to the English Channel and perhaps beyond. Western Europe would resemble Poland, Hungary, and Ukraine today.

Not to mention what Germany might be like today without US troops occupying them for the past 63 years.

To deny history is to be doomed to repeat it.

In terms of Russia's actions in Georgia, please read the reports on the ground to see what kind of stabilization they brought. Very similar to the stabilization they brought to East Germany at the end of WWII with the looting, rape, and disregard for life, liberty, or property.

If you want to see the difference between the US and Russia, just look at the difference between East and West Europe still today.

I am so sick of all the US bashing in the world today. It's going to sad when we withdraw from the world eventually and people have to deal with the morality of Russia and China unchecked. It's easy to criticize, but be careful what you wish for. The US can still survive very well within its own borders if it needed to. Most of the rest of the world cannot. Pax Americana will not last forever.
