Where’s The Outrage?

Russia bombs apartment buildings and whole villages. They clearly are “shedding blood for oil.” Time, of course, wonders “Has Georgia Overeached?” The NYT yawns and says “look at the big picture, the context.”
Realistically, there’s nothing we can do.
But where are the cries of condemnation, the street protests from those wonderfully superior populations of Europe?
Imagine the outcry had the US done something like this in, say, Chihuahua.

    Didn’t you know that “international law” only applies to the US?

    To (almost) quote my favorite diplomat, Arnold Rimmer:
    “Let’s get tough, the time for talking is over. Call it extreme if you like, but I propose we hit it hard, and hit it fast, with a major, and I mean MAJOR leaflet campaign. And while it’s reeling from that, we follow up with a whist drive, a car boot sale, some street theatre, and possibly even some benefit concerts. OK? Now if that’s not enough, I’m sorry, but it’s time for the T-shirts.”
