Georgia and Appeasement

Where's the line between appeasement and jingoism?

I have to think that somewhere in between them there is space for Bush to invite Putin over to the embassy in Beijing for a frank discussion. I know that his schedule was jam-packed with fireworks displays, but maybe he could have taken a few minutes from his busy schedule.

Or he could have just put on a bowler hat, carried an umbrella, looked into Putin's eyes, and assured us that he had achieved peace in our time.
