‘Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.’  ~ Proverbs 20:18






  • ‘Reveling in his status as an intimate of George Bush, Dick Cheney and John McCain, and America’s lone democratic ally in the Caucasus, [Georgian President] Saakashvili thought he could get away with a lightning coup and present the world with a fait accompli … American charges of Russian aggression ring hollow. Georgia started this fight – Russia finished it. People who start wars don’t get to decide how and when they end. ‘  ~ Pat Buchanan


A 12-year old girl from San Francisco tells Fox News what REALLY happened to her family while in South Ossetia when the war started:




  • The whole of Georgia talks about Russia’s bombing of Tskhinvali and South Ossetia. What are they talking about? One should not believe what the BBC or CNN said or what they will be saying,” he said. You may not be a professional, but a Western journalist must have at least an iota of honor and dignity. One should not lose their conscience and decency behind your profession, no matter whom you work for,” [President of North Ossetia, Sergei] Bagapsh said.’



(Image is purely–purely–intended to be tongue-in-cheek.  We at Metallic Pea enjoy beer like anybody else but we do not, of course, advocate nor participate in overindulging in alcoholic beverages.  Everything in moderation.

That is all.  Thank you.)






‘Americans have many fine qualities. A capacity to see ourselves as others see us is not high among them.’  ~ Pat Buchanan




  • This is the very real danger of socialized medicine: your legitimate medical problem can be legislated away just as easily as other medical problems can be legislated into existence, by people with absolutely no qualifications to diagnose you.’
