Post Russia Declares War Upon US
<a href="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/2603182/South-Ossetia-conflict-Concerned-US-citizen-gets-her-Georgias-confused.html">South Ossetia conflict: Concerned US citizen gets her Georgias confused</a>
Russia's invasion of South Ossetia seems to have alarmed residents - of the southern US state of Georgia.


A concerned citizen calling herself Jessica B has written a post on the comments section of the website Yahoo, saying "I live in georegia but i dont see rusia no where not even sound but they says theres tanks should i be worrie”.

“i herd on the news that rusia has invaded but i dont see them no where wats going on," she continued.

Her mind was presumably put at ease by a fellow contributor, who reassured her with the words "You are in the state of Georgia. The nation of Georgia is on the other side of the world".

It is unclear whether the original post stems from a genuine geographical error or whether it is a hoax, but it has become a viral internet phenomenon, with over 4000 people recommending it on the Digg.com website.

One poster found it all too believable.

"We do this thing once a week called current events. On this particular day we were discussing the tropical storm in Florida. I hear from the girl in front of me, 'You know, we should be talking about how we just went to war with Russia'", wrote PhineasMcSimp.

Atlanta, the capital of the state of Georgia in America, is 6310 miles (10154 kilometres) from Tbilisi, the capital of the former Soviet satellite, the Democratic Republic of Georgia.

While Georgia (US) has been the subject of wars between Britain and the young US Republic, and between the Confederacy and the Union during the American Civil War, history does not record any successful invasion by Russian troops.
