    Or at least, that's what a number of people in Georgia thought after seeing this on the news:

    Fake Russian invasion broadcast sparks Georgian panic - CNN.com

    Really, wtf were these people thinking when they made this broadcast. :shake:

    What the hell is wrong with those people?

    Can you imagine them doing that in the US? The place would explode from panic.

    Lol, people freak out so easily ;)

    But yeah, network should know what this leads to. It has been done many times in the past with similar results, in the 30's the War of the Worlds and just recently in Germany (terrorist attack simulation) and Belgium (Flandres claiming independence). A note should definitely be included.

    :spin:

    Hahahaha, War of the Worlds. hahahahaha.
    Don't say you don't think thats funny, that makes you a liar. And no one likes a liar.


    Of course, that is a very wrong thing to do. But they do have a good basis. The Soviet Union obviously has intentions to some day conquer these lands and return them to their former glory. Of course, it was meant to be a drill of sorts, but this went over the top.

    War of the Worlds = Funny.

    Russo-Georgian War ≠ Funny. Although, I don't think that's what you meant to imply.

    Why would someone do that? For ratings? I hope the people who did that lose their jobs.

    Its funny because someone was stupid enough to do that kind of thing, especially in such a fragile country.

    You know what would really drive up ratings? A Russian invasion. No, I know we can't make the Russians invade. I mean, do they really have to invade for us to report it, though? I mean, we've got all this archived footage just lying around collecting dust. Everyone loves a good invasion, right? I can't see how this could possibly go wrong.
