Dear Georgia:

Guess what?  We don't care.  You could do just about anything, and we would not care.  President with authoritarian tendencies?  Not interested.  "Increasing restrictions on media freedom"?  "Political interference in the judiciary"?  "Erosion of private property rights"?  The Russians do it, and we are not speaking out, so why should we care if you do it?
The Russians invaded your country, and we did next to nothing!  What makes you think that we would take action on the issue of a TV station?

P.S. This is obviously not my own opinion.  I think that the West should take action on Georgia.  It is the Munich of the 21st century.  Again, I hope Pavel is right, and we are forced to take action. But I doubt that we will.
