There's that cheer I was missing!

I'm just laying out the facts.

There could be genocides|on five continents,

people don't give a f*ck.

God forbid their cable goes out, though.

So what's Russia's|big beef here, then?

They just don't want|to see this place go west?

It may have more to do|with the oil pipeline here.

It goes direct to Europe which makes|the Russian pipe irrelevant.

They're also playing tug-of-war|with a couple of Georgian provinces.

- Welcome to Cold War, the sequel.|- Exactly!

Wanna give Dutchman a call?|See where the others are at.


And with Wolf Blitzer,

I think you should mention|the shelling of the villages...

Mr President,|your cabinet members are here.

- Would you like me to go?|- No. Please stay.

Gentlemen, you all know Chris,|my US press adviser.

- Hello.|- Yes, please come in.

- Good morning.|- Come in. Tell me news.

Mr President, the latest intelligence

indicates the separatists are firing|from the Russian positions,

using their peacekeepers as shields.

That can only mean willing cooperation.

That could be another attempt|to draw us into wider hostilities.

- Just like in '04.|- We believe this to be different.

Russian fighter planes and tanks|are moving towards the conflict zone.

A Russian fleet in the Black Sea|is also on the move.

So you all believe war is certain?

We... we pray not.

But the Ossetians, they are refusing|all our efforts in diplomacy.

Our troops are|at their lowest level of readiness.

Several ministers|are also out of the country.

We have no contingency plan...

We'll call them back.|Yes, call them back. Everyone.

And I want no response yet|to these provocations. Understood?

The question is what do you wipe|your arse with in Tajikistan?

There is no toilet paper anywhere.|Ever.

There's no newspaper, no leaves|on the trees. I had the runs!
