that's brutal, the grenade didn't even go off so why sentence the schmuck to life, next thing you know they'll be sentencing people to life for burning US flags and spitting at portraits of Bush. Goes to show it was probably no coincidence that both Josef Stalin and his favorite executioner Lavrenyi Beria were ethnic Georgians.

1. Even if grenade would go off, both presidents were covered by transparent armour.
2. Attempt was real.
3. He is georgian armenian.
4. About Stalin and Beria you are right, we discussed it:

Quote:This is not how the Georgians see things. In an interview with a Dutch magazine, Sandra Roelofs, the Dutch wife of the new Georgian president and hence the new first lady of Georgia, explained that her husband aspires to follow in the long tradition of strong Georgian leaders "like Stalin and Beria".

Actually, I'm not convinced that Beria was a much of an executioner. We tend to think this way because when Khrushev "exposed" Stalin he attributed many Stalin crimes to his rival, and the world bought this....
In reality, majority of Stalin's repressions occurred at times when Beria was not yet in Moscow or was involved in other issues (like building the nuclear bomb). Now, asacr, Khrushev was a Ukranian,...a from the Timoshenko's mafia too.... Wink1

We fitted a little Geogian girl with a myoelectric arm here. Got to know her parents pretty well during their two week stay. They gave us a history book in english about their country.
The capital, TBlisi, is claimed to be the city most razed and rebuilt in the world.
Sort of a cross-roads of cultures if you will, conquering back and forth.

Quite an interesting world view created thereby huh? I'm surprised they didn't shoot the guy, and I doubt his "life" in prison will be a very long one.
Tough place to make a living.

I disagree with Henry's view. To me,crime starts in the human heart and it makes NO difference if he was incompetent,he intended to murder an innocent man and the fact he was an invited guest makes no difference morally.

I would have him executed if I made the decision,has nothing to do with Bush. Anything less simply is not equal justice based on the heart's intent.
